Chipema Chitambala

Director of Care

My career began when I qualified as a General Registered Nurse.  After a short period in the acute sector, I specialised in the care of older people and since then have never looked back. I went on to specialise in Health Services Management with the Royal College of Nursing and completed a Master’s degree in Public Health.

I have worked across Health and Social Care with some great corporate brands, and this is where I cemented my leadership skills before joining Jewish Care at the end of 2017.

I have also won several awards; perhaps the two that I’m most proud of are the Wise Woman in Leadership Award by Faith Magazine in 2015 and, most recently, the Health & Social Care Leader of the Year 2021 by Black Women in Care.

As a leader, I enjoy influencing others positively, connecting with people, problem solving, motivating colleagues and empowering Teams to deliver great results. Most of all, I enjoy mentoring and coaching.
