New Care is planning to create around 800 jobs across the North of England over the next 12-24 months, as part of its growth plans.

The provider, which operates nine care settings, plans to open three facilities this year in Adel, West Yorkshire, as well as Wilmslow and Lymm, both in Cheshire. A further four properties are under construction with practical completion planned throughout 2023 and January 2024.

It employs approximately 810 employees and the creation of a further 800 roles over the next two years will see the operator double in size in terms of staff. It will be recruiting in areas of care, hospitality, housekeeping, maintenance and wellbeing.

Alex Fairhurst, New Care’s recruitment lead, is a social care ambassador for the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Careers Hub.

‘It really is an incredibly exciting time to work for New Care as the company continues to expand,’ she said. ‘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.’
