Head of human resources appointed

Borough Care has appointed Jayne Hennessey as its new head of human resources.

In her new role heading up the human resources team, Jayne Hennessey will be responsible for human resources strategic planning. This will include putting together a plan to link talent mapping and succession planning with continuous improvement. She will also be in charge of updating programmes in the areas of employee engagement and training, along with rewards and benefits. Jayne is also keen to increase engagement with the local community, to bolster Borough Care’s pool of volunteers.

Commenting on her new role, Jayne Hennessey says: “I’m looking forward to reviewing Borough Care’s current human resources processes and making any necessary improvements, as the company goes through a period of organisational change.

"I was attracted to the role as I believe the care sector for older people is still widely viewed as one that predominately attracts females and historically offers low paid jobs. I am keen to change these perceptions by working with schools, educational institutions and local communities, to highlight the importance of the sector at a time when our aging population continues to increase, and promote the wide range of employment opportunities available.”

Dr Mark Ward, CEO at Borough Care, says: “As we evolve and develop as a company, the role of human resources is critical in ensuring we equip our existing staff with the right skills and attract the best talent. I firmly believe in creating long term careers for people. To do this, we need to continue to develop and support individuals so they feel they can progress within the organisation.”
