A couple of exciting changes in the company
Posted on 25th November 2022 at 16:57
These past few weeks at Academy Care have been quite exciting for us! New promotions, starters, training, and opportunities!
We feel very strongly that those who do amazing work, should be rewarded. Thus, we have promoted a few people in the Wakefield office. The promotions start with Joanne M, and her new role as Deputy Care Manager. This replaces her old position as Field Care Manager but keeps some of the responsibilities though with the promotion come new challenges and tasks to further Jo’s career, the company, community, clients and carers.
Next up, we have Rachel E and her promotion to Accounts Executive. She now deals with our accounts, taking calls from clients and carers, general administration and speaking with clients and commissioners to make sure invoices are paid.
Last but not least, this month we have also promoted Nicole M to the position of Care Planner! She has been working with Academy Care as an office administrator since June 2019 but has now been promoted to Care Planner and we couldn’t be happier!
On top of the promotions, we have also had a few new members within the company. Both in-office and in the community, the new recruits have been welcomed in with open arms! The newest in-office hire is Adam P, a junior content creator, who is here to help create social media posts, blog posts, marketing resources and to help bring to the company’s digital presence forward.
That isn’t all that has been happening at Academy Care. Our training is also back up and running with weekly courses! We even have a new course, and all of our classroom courses are now Level 2 Nationally Accredited. The new course is Support Worker Training, and it includes Autism Awareness, Behaviours that Challenge and Learning difficulties. Some examples of the level 2 training are: First Aid, Moving and Handling, Dementia Awareness, Medication training and End of Life Care.
We welcome Julie D as our support worker trainer, Rachel E as our medication awareness trainer and of course Jo M as our Handling and Moving trainer, Tracy M as our end of life/dementia care trainer and Kristian H as our first aid trainer.

If you haven’t already heard, we now also recruit internationally! Our sponsorship license came through recently and the international applications have been coming thick and fast. Since September, when we got our license, we have had over 2000 applications from overseas! Everyone at Academy Care wishes them good luck in their applications!
In other news, we have also been setting up our new office. Academy Care is now in Leeds! We’ll have more details for you soon. Check our website and our social media for more updates!
