Team Case Studies

Lisa Seddon’s

Business Development Manager

I started working for Your Life Your Way back in 2011 and began my career journey as a Personal Assistant which gave me a great insight and an introduction to operational care management. The organisation grew during these early years, so many opportunities to develop my skills were presented to me. It was an exciting time, I was eager to learn, and this was recognised by senior management so I was quickly promoted into junior management roles. Through encouragement I added to my vocational qualifications in Health and Social Care and took up a leadership programme. In 2022, 11 years later, I am now part of the senior management team and have a great deal of involvement in strategic management and focus on developing new business. I love my job and work with a great team of dedicated professionals. I am extremely grateful that I have been able to be involved in many aspects of care management created great links with the local authority commissioners and contacts within CCGS. My interactions with clients and staff teams have also enriched my working life. I am proud to be working for an excellent organisation that is passionate about the service we provide. Our dedication to meeting the needs of vulnerable children and adults has been unwavering. Come and join our team and experience a rewarding career in care with good rates of pay, where you too can progress if that is something you desire. The sky’s the limit!


Our care and support is person centred with the user at the heart of the service.
