Care home providers are offering jobs to workers who have been affected by the coronavirus outbreak.

Stow Healthcare, Balhousie Care and Brunelcare are the latest to launch recruitment initiatives targeted at those who have been laid off or have had their hours reduced due to the virus. Ideal Carehomes announced it was offering flexible paid work earlier this week.

Stow Healthcare said it was offering opportunities across care, catering and housekeeping at its five homes in Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex.

Director Ruth French said: “We need extra staff right now, and we are in a position to train and support staff on a temporary basis, if people want to return to their normal roles in the coming months, or even permanently if they love our homes!  We are really excited to welcome new staff with different skills and experiences to boost our great teams.”

Prospective staff looking for work can contact the company on or call 07788 725879.

Charity Brunelcare is offering immediate work with the potential of permanent roles at its care and administration teams across Bristol, South Gloucestershire and Somerset, as it prepares for the temporary loss of staff infected by the virus. The roles range from nurses, carers, homemakers, chefs, community carers and administration duties. To find out more, click here.
