A day in the life of Jane Dee, Registered Manager
Have you ever wondered what the Registered Manager does? We’ve quizzed Jane Dee who was one of the founding members of Support for Independence to explain …
- Where are you from?
I was born in Ramsbottom, Bury. I have travelled and lived in various places but Ramsbottom is my home.
- What gets you out of bed in the morning?
Each morning I wake up and I never know what the day will bring. I look forward to working with the team to see what challenges we face and working to overcome them together. I also love to see the clients and support staff It makes me proud to see how much clients are developing with their rehabilitation Journey.
- What does an average day look like for you?
Every day is different, we have plans but must be prepared for them to change. As a team, we are always over coming challenges and working together to get the best results for our clients.
- What is the single best moment of your career?
We established Support for Independence in 2018. We built the company based on a vision where support staff felt valued and supported. Since then, we have built on that vision and developed a fantastic team. I have worked up towards the role of Registered Manager. I have enjoyed supporting our staff and watching the vision come to life. It’s almost three years since Support for Independence was formed and I’m still excited to see what the future holds for us.
- If you didn’t do this job – what would you do?
I have previously worked overseas as a holiday rep, but could always see myself in the police force or paramedic. I also worked at Manchester airport, checking in and onboarding holiday makers. I wanted to work there because I liked the hat. The year I joined they changed the uniform and removed the hat.
Travel and helping people have always been in my veins, I find my current role allows me to really make a difference and I find that so fulfilling.
