Home care firm to create 750 jobs

Award-winning home care provider, Alcedo Care Group, is pleased to confirm significant growth plans for 2021, creating up to 750 jobs across the North West, with 200 jobs planned for Lancashire.

In January alone, the family run firm appointed 95 new staff members, strengthening the already well-established caring and compassionate Alcedo Care team.  In the coming months, Alcedo Care forecasts a further 500 permanent new positions, approximately 100 at each of its existing offices located in Preston and Lancaster, as well as Blackpool, Southport and St Helens.

A further five offices are planned to open this year too, with another 250 jobs required to support this expansion.

As one of the highest rated home care groups in the UK, Alcedo Care recruits only the very best individuals, conducting thorough interviews followed by an extensive training programme and hands-on experience.  The company is committed to career development and there are lots of opportunities for progression, with Alcedo Care actively encouraging all staff to continue to further their education whilst working. 

Andy Boardman, managing director at Alcedo Care Group, says: “As a family run business, and with family values at the forefront of everything we do, recruiting the right people is essential.  Combining quality, clinical governance, training and investment in technology, we ensure each and every member of the team is fully prepared and supported to enrich the lives of our clients and allow for independent living at home.

“As we continue to grow at each of our existing offices across the North West, and with an additional five offices due to open, recruitment will play a key part of our strategy this year.  We have forecast approximately 750 permanent positions and are proud to be able to provide significant job creation across the North West after such a difficult year due to the pandemic.”

Alcedo Care provides care, support and nursing at home across the North West.  Established in 2017, the company continues to expand at pace and is fast gaining an enviable reputation as the home care provider of choice thanks to its superb team of highly skilled and compassionate carers who make a tangible difference to the quality of life of the company’s home care clients. 

Run by Andy and Jo Boardman, a passionate husband and wife team, the company aims to bring something different to the sector based on recruiting only the very best carers and retaining them by placing value on job satisfaction, training, continued professional development, internal promotion prospects and pay structure.  This combined with using the very latest technology is what sets the Alcedo Care Group apart from other home care providers.
