Recruitment & Administration Co-ordinator

Dawn Briggs

Dawn Briggs


01604 791266

Dawn started as an administrative worker in 1995 and has seen the organisation grow and develop over the years. She was originally based at our first home at 88 Clarence Avenue, Kingsthorpe, Northampton, and her office is now in the back garden of 8 Kingsthorpe Grove. Dawn is an integral part of the home and has developed close relationships with the service users. She genuinely cares for others, is sociable, compassionate and good-natured.

In 2017, Dawn reached the final of the National Learning Disability & Autism Awards. Her understanding of individual differences and a willingness to listen and empower means that she has a unique role at Richardson Care. She combines her administrative duties with supporting service users to work in the office, enabling them to be productive and feel valued. On many occasions Dawn has gone the extra mile to help service users, one of whom she has developed a close bond with over more than 20 years.

As well as administration and purchasing, Dawn’s role involves the recruitment of staff for the whole organisation and being the first point of contact for telephone enquiries.

When she’s not at work, Dawn looks after her grandchildren, enjoys knitting and crochet and is an avid Northampton Saints supporter.
