Deputy Manager

Hi my name is Jess and I am the Deputy manager for Alcedo Care Wigan. I have been working in the health and social care industry since I was 18, in a variety of settings including homecare, training and care homes. I started with Alcedo Care 2 years ago and I have enjoyed every moment of it! I have worked my way up to Deputy Manager of the Wigan branch and I look forward to all the new challenges. My favourite part of the role is hearing the feedback from the amazing work that the carers do out in the community, as it reminds me why I love this profession. In my spare time, currently, I enjoy reading and listening to any kind of music. Before the pandemic, I enjoyed going on adventures around the U.K particularly swimming in the Lake District. I am excited to see the Wigan branch grow and continue to provide the best quality care.
