Pepsi Tirivangani has been Branch Manager at Manorcourt Homecare, part of Healthcare Homes, in Saffron Walden for almost a year – taking up the role in April 2021.
On looking for a new role Pepsi wanted an employer who would support her and one which shared her values.
“I am passionate about the welfare of my staff, giving them what they need to enable them to do a good job and enjoy doing it. For example flexi hours and flexi days which are both good for recruitment and retention of staff, something we need in the care sector right now.”
Healthcare Homes came highly recommended and Pepsi liked the company reviews she saw on homecare.co.uk and through the Care Quality Commission.
“Every new job comes with new challenges but so far it has been a great journey and really interesting, “ she said.
“The teamwork at this branch, the positivity among our staff both in the field and in the office. I am looking forward to building even greater team rapport and to empowering my team to be the best they can be.”
“Support for us from head office is good too, I feel I just have to ask and someone is there to help me.”
With a degree in Management and a Masters in Leadership under her belt already Pepsi is taking a break from more education and training – just for the moment.
“I want to use some of the qualifications I already have and get the branch here really settled. I love the company and want to make progress within it myself, I feel there will be opportunities for me to do just that.”
