How we've helped iCareiMove
iCareiMove blend fitness, wellbeing and health into an online subscription for the care sector.
Trying to form a synopsis of a business is incredibly difficult, but this was done in a way that was better than we could have done ourselves. The Skills Hub knew where we wanted to go and what we wanted to achieve, and have signposted us to the right people in order to get there.
How we helped
iCareiMove are a Cornish success story. Having already built a successful online and face-to-face wellbeing community the small team are enthusiastically pushing forward with their vision to embed wellness into businesses via a holistic approach which sees people at the heart of everything they do.
Making a difference from mid-life to end of life has been their niche for over 20 years, with projects commissioned by the NHS, councils, hospitality, and the corporate and care sectors amongst many more.
This work sees the team attempting to move people from getting stuck in a medical merry-go-round, to instead seeing clients working on relaxation and meditation, for example, and looking at things more holistically to ensure that those in their older age are both comforted and comfortable.
Operations Coordinator, Nikki Veale, approached the Skills Hub at the Cornwall Business Show in 2021 looking to up-skill her team and is currently doing just that.
“We’re a small team, just three of us, but we’re all heavily into personal development and training,” she said.
Working with the Skills Hub’s independent and impartial team, Nikki is currently undertaking a Project Management course through Truro and Penwith College, with more on the way and already underway for her fellow team members.
“I’m also currently doing a digital marketing apprenticeship, the business owner is currently doing yoga training and my other colleague is a nurse and doing any training she can through the NHS. We are constantly up-skilling,” she said.
With iCareiMove bidding for a number of new projects expansion plans could be on the cards, should a raft of new work come through their door.
“We’ve got a lot of fingers in a lot of pies, and we’ve got a lot of projects we’ve recently bid for, so if all things land at the same time we’ll be expanding. We may need to take on more staff for service provision, so we’re not scared of going after the bigger things and pulling in people to help us achieve what we want to achieve,” Nikki said.
On working with the Skills Hub, Nikki couldn’t recommend it highly enough.
“Trying to form a synopsis of a business is incredibly difficult, but this was done in a way that was better than we could have done ourselves. The Skills Hub knew where we wanted to go and what we wanted to achieve, and have signposted us to the right people in order to get there,” she said.
