Hi, my name is Amanda, and I am the General Manager here at Peony Court. Welcome to our website!
I have worked in an administration since leaving school at age 16 and have been at Barchester since 2009, originally as a Receptionist/Admin Assistant at Westwood House, and from there to the Administrator at Thackeray House on.
I began working for Barchester in 2015 as a Carer at Orchard House in Newport. It was a very exciting and enjoyable experience.
In September 2016, I moved to Bromley and learned that there was an activities vacancy at Thackeray House in Croydon, so I requested to be transferred to this home. I began my new job in January 2017 and love working here and making a difference to residents' lives.

I joined the team at Thackeray House in late 2017. I started working as a care assistant, mainly aiding in activities, and in February 2019, I was promoted to admin assistant, which is a job role that I very much enjoy.
I joined Thackeray House in June 2018, before that I was at Reigate Beaumont, which is another Barchester home. I am responsible for keeping the residents and staff in a safe environment. That includes the upkeep of our building and all its facilities. I enjoying meeting the residents and helping them settle in and making their stay as comfortable as possible.
