Andrew has been a developer, builder and operator of care homes. All of which has produced a community of approximately 350 care beds, almost 100 retirement properties and over 300 staff. Which includes residential-care and nursing homes; with Andrew directly responsible for operations.
Why you like working for Target?
Working with Target affords me a unique insight into the carehome sector across the UK. As well as regularly visiting our own homes we are often privileged to visit small, medium and corporate operators across the country, often swapping notes with the dedicated staff teams who are the unsung heroes of this sector.
