A Yorkshire based family-run care group has made some key new appointments and promotions across its three nursing and care homes in Nab Wood and Steeton.
Czajka Care Group has appointed Vicky Stainburn as the new registered manager at Currergate Nursing Home in Steeton. Vicky grew up in Bingley and qualified as a nurse in 2007, then went on to manage a group home, before joining Czajka Care Group.
At Staveley Birkleas, which is the North of England’s leading specialist home for younger people with physical disabilities, Solmaz Bahadori-Ridge has been appointed as registered manager. Solmaz is a qualified Registered Learning Disability (RNLD) nurse and has worked in the care sector for 21 years. Experienced as both a deputy manager and manager, as well as training provider, Solmaz is a highly knowledgeable and skilled manager and a welcome addition to the team of 112 at Staveley Birkleas.
Nurses Imogene Tempest-Mitchell and Deborah Holgate have both been promoted to unit managers at Staveley Birkleas, and Czajka Care Group has also welcomed five new recruits from overseas. Nicola Parker has also been promoted to senior manager and her new role will see her take on more responsibility across all three homes. She has been with Czajka Care Group almost three years and is a much-valued member of the team.
At Brookfield Care Home Julieann Fitton has been appointed as registered manager and two of its dedicated team members have been promoted to joint deputy managers – Helen Larkin and Ada Przykaza. They have worked for Czajka Care Group for a combined total of more than 10 years.
Ada started her career in care as a care assistant and progressed through the ranks over the last six years, whilst gaining valuable support and training from Czajka Care Group. Helen started working in care when she was 16 whilst studying for a BTEC in social care and has gained more responsibilities and qualifications, working hard to progress her career.
Managing director, Konrad Czajka, said: “One of the things that makes our homes so special is our team. We are lucky to have so many dedicated and professional people, many of whom have worked with us for decades. Another stand out feature is the chance for career progression through our in-house training, which offers plenty of opportunities for promotion.”
