We believe that experience in social care isn’t essential for making a difference to someone’s life, but personality and a passion to learn are. Many of our teams are made up of individuals with a variety of career backgrounds from lawyers to landscapers, chefs to mechanics, all looking for a change of career.
Garry recently joined our team in Wrexham, after working in the retail sector as a Driver Team Leader.
Could you introduce yourself?
"My name is Garry and I am 49 years old. I was previously a Warehouse Manager. I then took five years off to be at home after the birth of my son. After these five years passed, I then joined Tesco where I was a Driver Team Leader for eight years."
Why did you decide to change careers?
"I decided to change careers because I have always wished to join the care industry and during the COVID-19 pandemic, I had time to reflect and decided that this was the ideal team to do it."
What interested you about joining MacIntyre?
"I did some research into various care companies and from the research and reviews I decided that MacIntyre was best and found out that they were opening a new team in Wrexham."
What are you looking forward to most in your role?
" I'm really looking forward to doing something rewarding where I can help and possibly improve someone's quality of life."
What would you say to others who are thinking of switching to care?
"I would say that if it is something which you have been thinking about, then don't just think about it. Do it."
