At Fulcrum, one of our core principles is to think differently. That could be in finding innovative solutions to complex care issues, giving tailored advice to build confidence in care home management systems, or indeed recruiting the best minds in Health and Social Care to better enrich our client support. With that said, we are pleased to welcome Elaine Gilvear to our team as a Senior Consultant to lead the operations management service that we offer investors.
Having Elaine on board to oversee Fulcrum’s operations management service is a great opportunity for us to place a higher degree of focus on improving interaction with our clients, ensuring operational projects have positive outcomes, supporting and guiding our operational consultants, and assisting with Fulcrum’s commercial development.
“I chose to join Fulcrum as I liked the values and ethos; the flexibility to do what I enjoy with the added bonus of working hours that suited my homelife,” Elaine said.
A wealth of experience
Elaine has worked in the Health and Social Care sector for 36 years, with 23 years of that in Senior Management roles including Chief Operating Officer at Advinia Healthcare, as well as Director of Operations – North at Runwood Homes Group.
“In my new role as a Senior Consultant, I hope to bring my commercial awareness and network of contacts to the consultancy. I have a pragmatic approach, but I’m also very calm in a crisis – which I think is a great asset to have within the Care sector! As events, regulations and circumstances are often shifting and contextual, being able to properly communicate issues and think creatively about solutions is an absolute must, which Fulcrum encourages in their approach.”
Across her previous roles, Elaine has built a healthy track record of quality and results-driven success and has been instrumental in building positive growth for a number of established care home portfolios.
“One of my key aims is to build better relationships throughout England, Scotland and Wales with both our consultants and clients,” Elaine states. “One thing that really stands out about Fulcrum is their amazing focus on adding value and support to care home management so, in helping the operational projects become more efficient, I look forward to reaching more care home owners, managers and Social Care professionals across the country.”
We look forward to working with Elaine to develop new projects within our consultancy, as well as make use of her vast knowledge and experience to improve guidance and support to many of our care home and adult social care clients.
