‘Skyrocketing’ job advertisement costs prompt launch of free care job site

care-job-logo has launched, a website offering a completely free job advertisement site for positions in the care industry.

This includes care homes, nursing homes, care agencies, nursing agencies, hospitals and GP surgeries.

Thanks to care provider Lastminute Care & Nursing all UK healthcare companies can now advertise vacant roles on the free care job site.

The Cheshire-based provider funded and launched the site.

Group-CEO and founder Joseph Willis commented: “For many years, I’ve seen the cost of advertising for care jobs and nursing jobs skyrocket out of control. The big players simply play one advertiser off against another, driving budgets to unprecedented and ultimately unrealistic levels. Small companies in particular are being priced out of the market.

“As a Franchisor, we support new Care Agency and Recruitment Businesses in the Care Sector. As new businesses they don’t stand a chance, even with our size and scope we still find it difficult to truly compete with the big multi site operators. I wanted to do something different.

“By offering free advertising, we remove the barrier of cost and improve standards and pay rates, because now the visibility and success of the advertising is based upon content, opportunity and quality, not who has the biggest pockets.”
