New care company to create 100 jobs
A new homecare company has been launched, with the people behind it vowing to become the number one service of its kind in Nottinghamshire.
Your Home Care has been founded by long-standing friends Paul Pitchford and Scott Marsh, and has offices and training rooms at The Sidings, Mansfield Woodhouse.
The company has already recruited highly-experienced Denise Pitts as its registered care manager and has applied for registration with the Care Quality Commission, the regulatory body for the care sector.
Marsh said: “Having had close family members experience very different levels of homecare, it’s a personal mission to help create an organisation that has the right values and standards so that care is at the next level.
“We aim to recruit around 100 staff, and we plan to achieve a CQC rating of Outstanding within a couple of years. It’s ambitious, but we’re passionate about what we do so we know it is achievable.”
Paul Pitchford, who has a background in developing innovative technology solutions, said: “We’re creating something really special here, somewhere where people with the right credentials will want to come and work. As well as people who really care, we’ll stand out because our staff will be able to use the latest technology and communication tools to help them deliver the high standards of personal care and assistance that clients need.”
He added: “We have done extensive research and scoured the country for examples of best practice. Working with Denise, we will put everything we have learned into Your Home Care and build an organisation that truly makes a difference.”
Mansfield MP Ben Bradley welcomed the launch, saying: “It’s great to see that a new homecare business is launching in Mansfield Woodhouse and one that has set its sights, and its standards, set high. Good luck to the team.”
Both Marsh and Pitchford bring vast experience to their roles, having both worked in the homecare and IT sectors for many years.
Before co-founding Your Home Care, Marsh took time out to study at the University of Derby, achieving a First Class Honours Masters Degree with Distinction as a Master of Business Administration (MBA) Global.
Prior to joining Your Home Care, Pitts gained considerable experience working in care, starting as a carer, progressing to training manager, and then to deputy care manager with one of the country’s leading homecare providers.
She was involved in two CQC inspections and was instrumental in achieving the rating of Outstanding on both occasions.
