The Randolph Hill Nursing Homes Group has announced two management team appointments.
Hilary Forbes (pictured) has been appointed manager of Fidra House in North Berwick, while Owen Edwards joins in the newly created role of Group Recruitment Manager.
Randolph Hill Managing Director Peter McCormick said: “We are delighted to welcome Hilary and Owen to the Randolph Hill team. Hilary is an immensely experienced and passionate care professional who will bring real strength and depth to this key leadership role at Fidra House. We are pleased to have attracted someone of such calibre to help ensure we continue to maintain the highest standards of care for our residents.
“Owen also takes on an important management role with responsibility for recruitment across the group. With a shortage of talent within the UK care sector his experience and knowledge will be essential in helping us continue to attract quality people to our homes throughout Scotland.”
Hilary brings over four decades of experience working within the care sector. After qualifying as a Registered General Nurse, she spent much of her early career in nursing and care management positions in Wales. In 2010 she moved to Scotland where she played a pivotal role driving forward Care Inspectorate ratings for homes she managed for Southern Cross and the Salvation Army.
Owen, who is responsible for sourcing quality staff for the company’s six nursing homes across central Scotland, has spent 12 years in recruitment, including several years working within the care sector for Newcross Healthcare Solutions and in his most recent role at Robinson Healthcare.
