Career success stories

Jack Smith

Rebecca Cooper

Assistant Chef 

I started working in The Horder Centre on the 10th March, 2014 after I saw the job on Horder Healthcare careers page. I originally joined Horder as a Hotel Services Assistant where I served food to all the patients. I have really progressed since I started- from serving meals, tea and coffee and generally looking after patients, I now work as an Assistant Chef. This is a much more demanding role - I cook meals for staff and patients from scratch!

Rebecca Cooper

Facilitator Trainer 

Before I came across The Horder Centre, I worked in a completely different industry. I worked for a wedding co-ordinating company, where I arranged appointments for beauty treatments, wedding fairs and completed general admin work. Alongside this position I was working on a part time basis at a residential home, caring for elderly patients which I found  rewarding. I think this sparked my passion to work in a patient led healthcare environment.

I have been part of the Horder family since October 1997! Prior to my position at The Horder Centre I was a stay at home mum, however I did have some private cleaning experience.

Jenny Soane

Assistant Theatre Practitioner (Joined 2003)

I have now worked for The Horder Centre for nearly nine years. In that time my role has changed considerably, from starting in Catering to now having done nearly eight years in Theatre. During my employment I have achieved my NVQ level 2 and NVQ level 3 which is equivalent to a diploma. This has opened new doors for me. Within the last year I am now qualified to scrub for operations. I find this both challenging and interesting; I enjoy being part of the team.

Alison Green

Strategic Development Manager (Joined 2001)

I joined The Horder Centre in 2001 as PA to the Chief Executive, who had only joined the organisation herself a couple of months earlier. At the time, there was no Human Resources Department – all the HR work was carried out by the Chief Executive and myself. It became obvious this could not continue as the organisation was growing, and in 2003 I was appointed to the new position of HR and Risk Management Coordinator. I soon lost the risk management part of the job as the HR aspect continued to grow until eventually I became HR Manager, with direct responsibility for all aspects of Human Resources and Payroll.
