Wilmslow headquartered care provider, Four Seasons Health Care, has launched a national recruitment drive to fill over 1000 new positions in the firm’s homes.
As a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic placing restrictions on visits from family and friends of residents, Four Seasons is creating the new positions at its 140 homes across the country to support the safety and wellbeing of residents.
80 new non-clinical roles will be created in the North West and the Wilmslow based care provider is actively encouraging individuals who have lost their jobs in the hospitality sector to apply, because of their transferable communication and teamworking abilities.
Jeremy Richardson, CEO of Four Seasons Health Care, said:
Whilst care homes continue to face enormous challenges, Four Seasons Health Care remains committed to looking after the overall wellbeing of our residents and maintaining the very highest standards in safety and care by investing in its teams.
“Virtual interviews have been a really safe and effective way of finding the right people for our homes during the pandemic and have speeded up the hiring process to help us get the right people into the right roles quickly and efficiently.”
Cheryl Jones, head of recruitment at the Wilmslow care provider, said:
Every role in a care home is vital to delivering an excellent experience for our residents. Our teams are made up of people from a wide variety of career backgrounds but what they share is an energy and enthusiasm for their role.
“By adding new members to our team, we can continue to maintain our high standards of safety and just as importantly to make sure our residents are happy. This is a fantastic opportunity for any individuals looking to make a real difference in the lives of others, no matter if they’re on the activities team, preparing meals or helping with maintenance.”
