Stockport BCM can’t wait to improve lives
A warm Newcross welcome to Janette Harradine
Our Stockport branch has a new BCM in the form of Janette Harradine, an experienced manager and someone drawn to work for Newcross by her desire to make a real difference to people’s lives.
Why did you want to join Newcross?
I have previous experience working with a small domestic and equestrian agency in sleepy Bunbury in Cheshire. It assisted in finding companions, careers and housekeepers for various clients. Some of those clients had very complex needs, and I found that role very rewarding. When I saw that Newcross was advertising for the BCM role in Stockport I jumped at the chance to help people on a larger scale than I did before.
What did you do before joining Newcross?
Before joining Newcross I worked as a Senior Branch Manager for one of the largest Welfare to Work providers in the UK, assisting people in upskilling and to find work as well as working with employers to match their needs – this brought its own challenges with working with the long-term unemployed, but it was a role that I thoroughly enjoyed for over 13 years.
What are you most looking forward to in your new role?
I love meeting new people and learning about their backgrounds. I’m also eager for the fresh challenge that working for Newcross will provide me.
What do you like to do outside of work?
I would like to say long walks and fresh air, but alas I enjoy eating too much! Mainly Spanish or Mexican food. I am very lucky that my husband is a brilliant cook, and so he spoils me with dishes that we have eaten in many restaurants. And I love cocktails, people that know me on Facebook will tell you that my profile is just pictures of cocktails when I go out! My fondness for them is such that I have started practising how to make them at home now! In the evening and weekends, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 boys – but I am definitely a football widow with all 3 playing and watching! We moved into our new house last January – so a lot of big projects are underway.
