Meet Colin Manes
Colin Manes, ICT Manager
Along with a small, dedicated ICT team, Colin works on technology across the organisation. An average day for Colin can involve anything from technical work, interacting with suppliers, procurement, negotiations and identifying growth areas for technology. For Colin, the best projects are implementing new technology bringing enjoyment and making jobs easier. He focuses on continuous improvement, knowing that the work he does impacts on residents through his colleagues.
While Colin joined the team at the end of 2016, his journey with SwanCare began a few years earlier, in a previous role as a supplier for SwanCare.
“In my previous role as a supplier, I was able to see how SwanCare treated everyone and I really liked how focused on people they were. In that role, I was once taken on a tour and it was easy to see how the value and importance placed on residents extended to their employees. I was looking for a workplace that was people-centric, so when I saw this job advertised - it was a no-brainer for me to apply!”
“What we have here is a fun environment that gives back. You look around and see that everyone wants to be here. I’m yet to meet someone who doesn’t acknowledge others and enjoy what they do. It’s really encouraging. There is a strong sense of community at SwanCare and we all help create that community feel.”
