Care firm on re­cruit­ment drive for 30 staff

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS SME BUSINESS -

A CARE provider is set to cre­ate 30 new jobs.

Home In­stead Se­nior Care, which pro­vides care to peo­ple in their own homes in East Cheshire, will launch the ma­jor re­cruit­ment drive this month.

The firm, based in Chelford, is experiencing greater de­mand for its ser­vices be­cause of an age­ing pop­u­la­tion.

Julie Akroyd, who runs the com­pany with her hus­band Steve, said: “We are re­ceiv­ing more and more calls from lo­cal peo­ple and fam­ily mem­bers look­ing for home care, and our busi­ness has grown sig­nif­i­cantly as a re­sult.

“We con­sider our fan­tas­tic care­givers as ev­ery­day su­per­heroes; they are ev­ery­day peo­ple do­ing ex­tra­or­di­nary work. Whether they are pro­vid­ing com­pan­ion­ship care, pre­par­ing meals, or help­ing with daily living rou­tines, they are mak­ing a dif­fer­ence to the lives of the el­derly.

“For peo­ple with no prior ex­pe­ri­ence, we pro­vide a full train­ing pro­gramme so any­one who is in­ter­ested in a re­ward­ing ca­reer in the grow­ing sec­tor should get in touch. It is the unique and high-qual­ity, per­sonal ser­vice that has al­lowed us to grow so quickly and cre­ate th­ese jobs in the lo­cal area.”

Home In­stead is host­ing a cof­fee morn­ing and re­cruit­ment fair at St Michael’s and All An­gels Church in Macclesfield on March 7. All pro­ceeds from this event will go to East Cheshire Hospice.

If you can’t make that event then there is a sim­i­lar op­por­tu­nity at Wilm­slow Methodist Church on March 10, with pro­ceeds go­ing to the Alzheimer’s So­ci­ety.
