My name is Lianne Parkin and I am the general manager at Great Baddow.
I have worked in the care industry for around 20 years. I started as a care assistant and very quickly realised I had a great passion for ensuring people were cared for and providing a personalised service to them to ensure their needs were met.
I then progressed to become a senior and moved into a management role around 8 years ago.
I have always enjoyed my role very much and have now worked in many different areas of the social care sector which has given me great experience. I enjoy leading a team and providing a positive influence to the team members around me and the residents in my care.
Resident happiness and safety are always at the heart of everything I do.
