Employee Focus: Malcolm Hodgkiss
As part of the double bill for the final day of Employee Focus we hear from Malcolm about his Heathcotes experience:
'Before starting work with Heathcotes I worked in the care industry for eight years supporting young people with learning disabilities and challenging behaviour. In 2011 I joined the Heathcotes family at the Balby service, I prefer the person centred approach that Heathcotes encourages as it helps our service users reach their full potential. I enjoy supporting our services users both in house and whilst they are out on trips and holidays. I love being part of a small dedicated team where we can all make a huge difference to people's lives.
When I'm not at work I love spending time with my family and visiting our caravan in Filey.'
Gemma Hollingsworth, Deputy Regional Manager for Yorkshire and Humberside, has the following to say of Malcolm, 'Malc is a valuable member of our team who has spent time mentoring new staff and helping them to develop into experience and knowledgeable support workers. When Malc is on shift you can visibly see how much he loves his job and how much he enjoys supporting the people that use our service.'
