The Royal Star & Garter Homes has appointed Kate Silver as its director of people.
She will assume the role on 19 August, replacing director of human resources Siobhan Creighton, who is retiring after almost two decades with the Charity.
The Royal Star & Garter Homes cares for ex-Servicemen and women and their partners living with disability or dementia, from three homes in Surbiton, Solihull and High Wycombe.
She joins The Royal Star & Garter Homes from the ministry of defence, where she worked for four years – most recently as HR deputy director and HR chief operating officer.
Prior to that, Kate worked for the cabinet office as programme director, where she was responsible for all work on collective leadership.
Her new role will ensure that she continues to work closely with the military.
Commenting on her new role, she said: “I’m very excited about working for The Royal Star & Garter Homes. Their values resonate with me and I am looking forward to working with a team which strives to live by these every day.”
Adding: “I’m eager to visit all the Homes and I’m ready to get started working with people across the organisation to maintain a great environment. I have visited the Surbiton Home already and found it humbling yet very uplifting, particularly seeing the passion and dedication of the staff and volunteers.
“I share a sense of duty and pride in service with my Military colleagues present and former and I look forward to maintaining that connection. I am excited about the challenge and am looking forward to being part of the team as, together, we take the next step on the journey,” she concluded.
