Gemma Howells

Head of People & Culture

I have worked in Health and Social Care since the age of 18. I started my career as a Nursery Nurse and progressed very quickly to become a Day Nursery Manager. During those early years my highlight was working with children with Autism, Learning Disabilities and Acquired Brain injuries.

I started my Marketing career in a Biotechnology company, where I obtained my Marketing degree, graduating in Westminster. In 2014 I started working for a National Social Care provider, at which time I obtained my Chartered Marketer status. I joined M&D Care in 2020 drawn by their passion, understanding and focus for providing exceptional care and support.

I am passionate about people and positive engagement. I work with my team in partnership with employees, the people we support and all departments, to enhance internal communications, raise the company’s profile and engage a vast cross-section of audiences in which we operate. My focus is on ensuring that our powerful stories and messages are successfully communicated, and that we celebrate our achievements, and stand out as a company that makes a difference.
