Jayms joined the Senior Management Team, coming into his new position within the Stocks Hall Nursing & Care Group in 2016.
He was born in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne so technically he’s a Geordie! (Why-I-Man) and first joined the Group in 2007, originally working in Stocks Hall, Skelmersdale Home. Before that however, he spent the early part of his working years at Morrison’s supermarket, joining the Management Programme straight from college.
7 years into the programme, he decided it wasn’t for him and took an administrative temporary role, working for an NHS Community Mental Health Team, inputting notes onto the computer.
He says “it was during this time, I really liked what I was reading. I gained insight into the role of a Registered Mental Health Nurse and thought ‘Hey, this role is something I want to know more about’, so I enrolled at UCLAN University, as a student Mental Health Nurse, completed my training after 3 years, and then my career with Stocks Hall began. The Stocks Hall Nursing & Care Group have developed and supported me every step of the way.”
Jayms was initially employed as a newly qualified Nurse, quickly moving up to a Senior Nurse’s position at our Skelmersdale Home, then took on a new challenge by moving to our St. Helens Home, initially as a Senior Nurse, eventually becoming Deputy Manager.
Jayms was promoted to Manager at Andrew Smith House early in 2016. He is very much a people’s person and loves contributing to ensuring people’s needs are met, their lives enjoyed and they have purpose.
The group welcome Jayms into the Senior Management Team and look forward to seeing Stocks Hall at Andrew Smith House thrive under his leadership, and Management qualities.
