A career change for Graham
Regional Business Support Manager, Graham Miller talks about how moving internally within Lifeways has helped him progress and change his career.
"I started at Lifeways back in 2016 as a National Recruitment Officer. My responsibility was to attract prospective colleagues to come and work within our fantastic portfolio of new build developments. After a year, I was asked to take on the role of Regional Recruitment Coordinator for the North-East in addition to my role working in the New Builds team. At this point, I was a member of the Recruitment Team within our HR function. This was until 2018 when I was allowed to move into the financial and operations side of the business. My title is now Regional Business Support Manager, where I drive functional performance by implementing new ways of working according to our long-term, strategic organisational goals. I work closely with the operational teams across the North region as well as our financial operations teams within the head office.
My background has always been in the recruitment sector. However, I believed I had the transferable skills, qualifications, and experience to move internally into my current role and to continue to contribute positively to Lifeways’ organisational development. It was a positive step in my career and allows me to make a big impact in Lifeways and help contribute to the important work that we do in helping the people we support to realise their ambitions."
