Sam Smy

Sam Smy - Director of Logistics and Resources

I joined Cephas Care in 2008 as a support worker, whilst I enjoyed this role I felt it was time for a change and that I wanted to further my career within business. The position of Rota Assistant based at Head Office was advertised which was suitable as it meant I could remain within the care industry which I had grown a strong passion for. I continued within this role for 6 years until my return from maternity leave where I became the Logistics & Finance Coordinator for.
