In a demonstration of support and commitment to developing our staff into management roles, Chloe Boon, our newest and youngest Care Home Manager has taken up her new role. Now aged just 24, Chloe started with Black Swan in September 2016 as an apprentice care assistant aged just 17.
Chloe takes up the story of her career with us: “I’d never done care before and felt welcomed into the home and discovered the role of a Carer. I then moved over to the Activities Co-ordinator role, before becoming a Senior Care Assistant. In 2018 the opportunity came up to become a Trainee Deputy Manager. I learned so much valuable knowledge in that role and in 2019 I progressed to Deputy Manager.
“Alongside my experience in my previous roles, Black Swan supported me with my Level 3 and 5 Diplomas in Health and Social Care to further my knowledge, and I then became a Peripatetic Deputy Manager, where I developed wider experience of other Black Swan homes and teams.
“When the opportunity came up for the Manager’s role at The Beeches, I knew that the time was right for me and I’m really excited to be joining our outstanding-rated team at the home. I’m so grateful for the support I have been given throughout my career with Black Swan.”
Regional Manager Amanda expressed her pride in Chloe: “At just 24, we are really proud to be appointing Chloe to the Care Home Manager role at The Beeches. She’s been with our Black Swan family for over 6 years and has so much experience in different roles. She’s already a big asset to us and it shows all our staff that we have a career pathway to support them to develop and grow with us, and to find a long-term, successful career in social care.”
