Developer-led care home operator, New Care, plans to double in size by creating 800 new jobs over the next two years.
Having recently opened its ninth facility, New Care will open a further three care homes in Adel, Wilmslow and Lymm this year, with four care homes also under construction that are due to be completed in 2023-24.
New Care will be recruiting a wide range of individuals covering care, hospitality, housekeeping, maintenance and wellbeing.
Alex Fairhurst, New Care’s Recruitment Lead, (pictured front with some of the New Care team) is a Social Care Ambassador for the Greater Manchester Health & Social Care Careers Hub, and within her role, aims to demonstrate the mix of job opportunities available, breaking down the stigma about working in social care and ultimately inspire individuals to consider a career in the sector.
Alex started her career as a care assistant with Four Seasons progressing to administrative positions, before joining New Care in a recruitment role.
She said: “Working in the care sector is hugely rewarding and as a company, New Care understands how important it is to highlight this. With a good selection of roles available within each of our care facilities, we can nurture careers across a number of industries, from chefs, waiters, front of house and housekeeping to carers, nurses, wellbeing and recruitment.
“My own career in care is reflective of this. It really is an incredibly exciting time to work for New Care as the company continues to expand. With the opening of several new care homes in the pipeline for the next 24 months, recruitment will play a large part in the firm’s future strategy.”
