  • Hannah Says

    Hannah says: “Each role within a care home comes with its rewards.  I have always wanted to care for people and I now enjoy helping and supporting those who are starting out on their career path as I did.  Hillside are like my family and the support I have had means I have never doubted myself.”

  • Hannah's Advice

    To anyone considering filling out an application form for Shaw Hannah’s advice would be to ‘Go for it, as she knows there is so much opportunity for progression and if you are dedicated you can move up the ladder.  There is such a variety of roles.”
