One of Europe’s fastest-growing healthcare businesses has today announced they are recruiting 50 new care staff in Ayrshire.
Cera, one of the UK’s largest home care providers, is on the hunt for new members of staff for its Prestwick branch.
The company is calling for applications with immediate effect.
They are particularly keen to hear from individuals looking to transition into a new career in Care from sectors hardest-hit by the pandemic, and with transferable skills for care, such as retail, hospitality, cleaning and the wider gig economy.
Cera has confirmed that all roles will be permanent and full-time, with opportunities for training and development to support future progression for new joiners.
Since its launch four and a half years ago, Cera has grown to more than 6,000 staff nationwide, delivering over 30,000 care visits every single day to a user base of 12,000+ throughout England, Scotland and Wales.
Dr Ben Maruthappu, co-founder and CEO of Cera, said: “The pandemic has accelerated a marked shift in social care, with more and more older people wanting to receive care in their own homes, creating greater demand and opportunity for care staff throughout the country.
