Position and company: Registered Manager at New Era Residence

Michael currently manages a team of care workers and is responsible for the management and operational delivery of New Era Residence.

He explained: “I oversee the implementation of standards as required by OFSTED and am the Registered Manager for the bungalows that are the Children’s Home. This includes line management of the other Children's Home Managers and the Night Team Manager.

“My role is to lead and direct others to provide person-centred support to young people with physical disabilities and complex health needs to promote their independence and personal fulfilment. I am also part of the first level 24-hour on-call rota for residential services.” 

When asked about his greatest achievements and challenges to date, Michael replied: “My greatest achievement is completing my MBA graduate degree. However, my biggest challenge so far has been pursuing a PhD degree.” 

He continued: “I was attracted to the University of Sunderland because of its diversity, and I enjoyed my course immensely. My supervisor had the most significant influence on me during my time at the University.” 

His advice to recent graduates entering the job market is to choose the right course for their career path. If he had known then what he knows now, he would have applied for his course in time. The best advice he ever received is to work hard." 

He concluded: “My future plans include completing my PhD program. I would like to be remembered as a hard worker and leave a legacy of dedication and excellence in my field.”
