What attracted you to apetito?

“I have been working in the care industry for the last ten years, whilst studying with the open university as a mature student, studying dementia and care management, so working for apetito in the care homes team felt like a good fit for me. I felt I would be able to bring my experience of the care industry to the role and the values of ‘making a real difference’ also matched with my own personal values.”


What was the role you started in and what responsibilities were you given?

“I started in September 2019 as client development manager for the care home division. I was given my own care homes and geographical area to manage, both commercially and from a client relationship perspective. I have since been able to launch new care homes of my own; two before Covid-19 and four during the lockdown. I have had the freedom to manage my accounts and work on projects which bring added value to the team and our clients.”

What development, training or support have you been given by apetito?

“I have had a thorough induction with apetito and the care home team, where I’ve shadowed colleagues and been guided by a mentor through the induction process. I have also had the opportunity to do some excel training to build on my commercial skills.”

“Visiting care homes in the apetiser means that we get to see the difference apetito makes to the residents.
