Third Times A Charm

Pictured: Karen with the fantastic Yeovil team.

After coming out of retirement to join Newcross again, we welcome back Karen Shillcock as Yeovil's Business Centre Manager.

Joining the already fantastic team of Healthcare Co-ordinators, Danielle Wheeler, Hannah Foster and Freya Butland, Karen joins after temporarily looking after Bristol Establishment Branch for a few months.

Karen's Life at Newcross

In 2010 we welcomed Karen to the Bournemouth Branch as the team leader, where she built up her team and grew the business in the Bournemouth area. 

Karen then left for three months as she moved to Glastonbury, where she took the opportunity to visit her brother in Australia for six weeks.

When Karen flew back, that week she met with Geoff White and Steve Churches to interview for the Bristol Business Centre Manager role, and she started in Bristol the week after. 

After three years Karen decided to retire and went to live on a boat in Greece! But that didn't stop Karen from coming back to Newcross. 

Karen said, "everyone thinks I am mad to give up life on a boat for Newcross."

Karen, what is it about Newcross that keeps you coming back?

"I love Newcross, from meeting the clients and developing new opportunities in my area, to building relationships with staff. I always do my best to be fair but firm with my staff, and always try and learn a new skill or behaviour every week."

"I would like to thank Michelle Gorringe and Tracy O'Kennedy for their continued support as they provided me with all the skills I need to do the job.  Teamwork is important to me, both in branch and with other managers.
It really is the best job I have ever had."

If you’re an experienced care assistant or registered nurse, we could have the agency job for you. View all the Yeovil jobs here.
