New Brighton woman appointed head of HR at care group

Alcedo Care Group has appointed Wirral woman Jo McIntyre as group head of HR.

Reporting directly to the Board, she is responsible for developing and shaping the human resources and people strategy within the group, working closely with the management team to provide coaching and guidance on all things related to the home care provider’s people.

With a passion for nurturing talent and encouraging growth, Jo has more than two decades of hands-on experience and brings a wealth of knowledge from diverse sectors including independent fostering agencies, elderly home care, aerospace, and retail.

She said, “My 28-year career journey in HR has given me a unique perspective and a keen eye for talent. Committed to continuous learning and development, I love working with people, bringing out the best in every individual and helping them achieve their personal goals while contributing to the company’s overall success.”

One of Jo’s first tasks will be to launch Alcedo’s Rising Stars programme, a dedicated company-wide career pathway that provides employees with clear personal development goals and includes specialised training, funding, qualifications, coaching, and mentoring, to enable employees to succeed in their career aspirations.

Commenting on Jo’s appointment, managing director of Alcedo Care Group, Andy Boardman, said, “I’m pleased to welcome Jo to the team and look forward to working closely with her as our team continues to expand.”

Professionally qualified, Jo holds a CIPD Level 5 Diploma in Human Resource Management. 

She lives with her husband and two teenage sons in New Brighton, and enjoys daily seaside strolls with the family’s seven-year-old staffie called Bailey.  When not working, she enjoys going on holiday with family and friends, especially her annual ski trips to France, and keeping healthy with regular gym visits.

Rated one of the Top 20 Large Home Care Groups for four years running, Alcedo Care Group is on track to meet its target of owning and operating 30 branches across the North of England and Wales by the end of 2025.  The company has a successful branch in Wirral, located on Shore Road in Birkenhead.
