Danielle transitioned from the luxury of corporate concierge to shape the Elderly Care division at Appoint Healthcare. As an empathetic and friendly leader, she builds enduring relationships, creating a positive work environment for her team.

Amy Daruvalla

Health Team Manager - Hospitals & Clinics

Leading as Health Team Manager, Amy's focus is recruiting for NHS & private hospitals and clinics. With a foundation in Psychology and diverse roles, she blends her listening and matching skills flawlessly. Amy is that smiling face in the office, always ready to assist. Off-duty, she's either at the gym, running after her two little ones, eating great food along with a good glass of bubbly, or dreaming of her next sunlit vacation!

Claire Goacher

Office Manager

As Office Manager, Claire is the secret behind the smooth running of our office! With a history of office roles across several industries, Claire loves to help out wherever she can and generally be our rock. Off duty, you can find her hanging out with loved ones, going on forest walks with her partner and dog Izzy, cooking or baking, pottering around in the garden, travelling, or doing something sporty!.

Michelle Connolly

Accounts Manager

As our Accounts Manager, Michelle meticulously oversees our finances, ensuring we’re all paid on time. Prior to joining Appoint Healthcare in 2013, she managed finances in the design and manufacturing sectors. Beyond her professional prowess, Michelle is a gym enthusiast, putting us all to shame! During breaks, we adore when her little girl visits, eagerly anticipating the day she starts showing us her computer skills.

As Team Leader of our Specialist Care team specialising, Amy is dedicated to helping specialist care providers build their teams. Transitioning from a similar recruitment background, she believes in providing a VIP service for her candidates and clients, creating a truly consultative experience. Office-renowned for her wicked laugh, off-the-clock, she's either spending quality time with family, dining out, or singing her heart out in a karaoke session.

Katie Beach

Recruitment Team Lead – Elderly Care

Armed with an LLB(Hons) in Law and diverse experience, Katie's role as Recruitment Team Lead for the Elderly Care team is pivotal in recruiting for senior nurse management. With keen professionalism and relationship-building skills, she bridges gaps between clients and candidates effortlessly. Off duty, Katie can be found running after her husband and two kids, reading, deep sea fishing and (almost embarrassingly) being a huge Xbox Call of Duty gamer.
