September Carer of the Month – Takunda
At WESolutions, our role extends beyond finding a new job for a candidate. We want to build long-term relationships with our healthcare professionals and support them through different stages of their careers. We also champion their hopes and dreams, supporting them as much as they support their patients.
Our Carer of the Month initiative is designed to highlight the journey, achievements, and experiences of some of the most talented healthcare workers we’ve had the pleasure to place. We’re delighted to introduce you to September’s Carer of the Month, Takunda.
Takunda works as a Healthcare Assistant in Weston-super-Mare and has been nominated for consistently going above and beyond the extra mile for his colleagues and patients.
He knows first-hand the challenges of relocating to the UK and has quickly established himself as a person always willing to lend a hand – whether that’s helping his colleagues move house or covering for a sick colleague at work.
Read on for his full story.

Q: When did you realise that a career in healthcare was right for you? Was there a particular moment in your life?
A: I didn’t realise my passion for healthcare until I started doing the job! Before that, I wasn’t sure if I could do it.
Q: What was your journey like in securing a role through WESolutions?
A: The WESolutions team was fantastic in helping me secure my new role. They were on the ball right from the start and were quick, efficient, and very helpful! They were also very empathetic and understanding of my needs.
Q: What advice would you give to young people considering a career in nursing?
A: I will advise young people to consider healthcare if they love working with people, and seeing their lives improve. It’s an extremely rewarding career path, not just financially but also very much in terms of finding one’s purpose and calling.
Q: If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
A: The power to heal. I have seen so many people who are unwell in my lifetime, and my desire is always to see them whole.
