Good luck Allison!
Our Head of Services, Allison Stephens bids a fond farewell to Heathcotes this week as she takes up a challenging new role - as a new mum!
Allison has been a longstanding and highly valued member of the team at the Heathcotes Group for over 6 years, starting her career with the organisation at Heathcotes Arnold, as a Registered Manager. The valuable experience Allison gained in the role ensured she was a strong candidate when Heathcotes were recruiting to the position of East Midlands Regional Manager. Allison was successful in her application to the post and her new responsibilities saw her working closely with colleagues in the Operations and Commissioning Teams during an intense period of significant growth for the Heathcotes Group. During her tenure, as well as having day-to-day oversight of the running of all our East Midlands services, Allison was also involved in a number of strategic projects, including operational responsibility for the development, roll out and opening of our brand new specialist mental health services in Nottingham. Latterly, Allison's career progression saw her apply to the position of Head of Services for the Group; a role in which she was successful and remains to date.
This week Allison's colleagues and friends gathered at Heathcotes Head Office to deliver gifts, good wishes and cake; pictured are Allison and bump with their haul of presents!
Allison is going to be greatly missed by us all here at Heathcotes, but we wish her love and luck as she begins her new journey and look forward to seeing her when she returns from her maternity leave. We will be sure to share Allison's good news when baby makes her appearance!
We are also pleased to report that Gemma Hollingsworth (Yorkshire & Humberside Regional Manager) has been successfully appointed to cover Allison's role of Head of Services, whilst she enjoys her maternity leave. For any enquiries, please contact Head Office on 01246 556453.
