Jane and Chris Hewson
I joined Cephas back in 1995 as a part time care assistant, during the last 20 years I have worked in many departments within the company, becoming Managing Director in 2004 my role is to manage the Company on a day to day basis and to look at strategic planning, company expansion and company finances. I enjoy my role and have a passion to ensure Cephas is a key player in the care market within East Anglia.
I started working in Residential Care with people who had physical and learning disabilities. Following this I became an NVQ assessor, supporting students to gain the knowledge and skills to work in a variety of different care settings.
I began assessing for Cephas Care and I observed the passion and support within their Residential Homes. As soon as a position became available at Cephas, I started work with them in 2008. Initially I worked as deputy manager with Cephas. More recently I have supported the deregistration of our 4 Residential Homes, which are now Supported Living, and setting up new supported living schemes across Suffolk. I recently took on the role of Operations Manager and oversee and support all services delivered within Cephas Care.
I joined Cephas on 7th April 2005, I was employed part time two afternoons a week to sort through the archiving. I then helped out on reception I enjoyed this and stayed there full time for about 2 years.
As the company grew I started to help in the HR department where I was eventually moved to full time. I took some time out in 2007 when I had my son, when I came back to work I started to assist with the process of payroll.

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 6years until my return from maternity leave where I became the Logistics & Finance Coordinator for.
