Hi I’m Rob
I’m the MD here at Caring For Care.
I have quite a varied career starting at Focus DIY as a category assistant and finished in a junior buying role working in the gardening and seasonal categories. When Focus went into in administration I moved to Peterborough and entered into a marketing role for a company called Garden Bargains running off the page advertising. Not long after company was taken over by Ideal World and I moved into a digital marketing role managing the businesses GoogleAds account. After a combination of performance and some structure changes I was promoted numerous times and became responsible for managing the Ideal World website alongside four other websites with a combined turnover of around £65m. I then moved back up north into a similar role before my wife, Jenna, started Caring For Care and I moved over to support on the sales, marketing and operations functions.
My previous roles have given me expose to a wide range of business functions which has set me in good stead for running our own business.
Away from work I train in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in which I currently hold a black belt and have been training for around 8 years and have travelled around the world competing in tournaments
