Judy Purkiss' Summary

I have worked for CareTech for 16 years and over that time have worked at all levels, starting off as an Administrator working for the homes, working in Marketing, HR, Training, Senior Administrator for Central Region, PA to Directors for the Southern Region, working in the CAPRTA time and attendance team and currently helping out in the Fleet Department. I have been adaptable to the many changes that have come my way going from a small company to a large PLC.

Having worked in the CAPRTA team supporting the homes whilst the time and attendance system was being rolled out, in this time I learnt a lot about computer systems, system architecture, UAT testing, I worked for this team for seven months and then got asked to help out in the Fleet Department helping to put data into the Access database from registration numbers to names of drivers in the homes but really miss the everyday challenges working with Directors.

I have now worked with the Chairman, CEO and Board of Directors for 2 years and enjoy the many challenges that come my way on a daily basis.

I am an experienced personal assistant with excellent organisation and communication skills, vast knowledge of various computer packages (including word, excel, access and PowerPoint) I have the ability to work as part of a team with the added expertise of working in a confidential manner. In October 2011, I was seconded to a project team to assist with the implementation of a Time and Attendance system. I was involved with supporting the roll out to over 120 services. I assisted with the production of user guides and training materials and spent time working with service managers to ensure that the system supported the services and therefore producing a more efficient workforce.
