Nathan has formed a successful career for himself in Adult Social Care and is now providing invaluable support to Cheshire West and Chester Council’s frontline services as a Project Manager.
After starting his career as an Occupational Therapist, helping people with daily tasks to become more independent, Nathan progressed to a Deputy Ward Manager in the NHS.
He has since moved into Project Manager roles and joined the Council a couple of years back, working closely with Adult Social Care teams, partners in the NHS and community sector and people accessing services.
Nathan said: “I love working at the Council.
“Everybody is great and we’ve got a really positive and inclusive culture here.
“We’re one team, working together to help people live great lives.
“My favourite part of the role is interacting with colleagues and people who use our services.
“It’s really great to get people working together to make improvements in Cheshire West and Chester.”
Nathan would certainly encourage others to think about starting or developing their career in Adult Social Care with the Council.
He added: “There have been loads of opportunities along the way, like going on courses, shadowing roles that I’m interested in and people generally being friendly and helping you progress in your career.
“We have brilliant managers who support their teams and embrace change.
“It’s a really exciting role in a supportive environment and you learn something new every day.”
The Council’s Adult Social Care teams have plenty of opportunities to progress your career, offering a range of benefits.
Competitive pay for the Adult Social Care sector
Excellent pension scheme with 22 per cent employer contributions – compared to the typical three per cent
Generous holiday allowance of 26 days (pro rata), increasing to 31 days after five years of service

Ongoing training and development opportunities
The Council grows its own so most managers progress from within the organisation to more senior roles.
All current vacancies are advertised on the Council’s website so you can find the right role for you.
