Gary Dean – Bringing New Talent to Hope Collaboratives
Gary began his career with Care Plus Group when he joined Hope Collaboratives as an Apprentice Marketing Assistant.
Prior to joining the organisation, Gary worked for many years as a Graphic Designer and although he enjoyed his role, he aspired to work within an organisation where he felt he could make a real difference to peoples’ lives.
Gary brought with him many transferable skills and although working within the Health & Social Care sector was completely new to Gary, within no time at all he became an asset to the team, in particular enhancing and developing professional relationships with local Care Homes.
Gary was successful in gaining a full-time substantive position as a Hope Collaborative Assistant and since then his career has continued to flourish.
