Live-in care company creates 1,350 UK jobs as demand surges by 25%
A live-in care company has announced that it is creating 1,350 jobs as it recruits for new home carers across the country.
Elder, headquartered in London, is actively hiring to add 1,350 new team members to its 3,500 strong team.
The recruitment drive comes following a “huge” increase in demand, with a 25 per cent rise in customers over the past year.
Pete Dowds, CEO of Elder, commented: “Covid-19 mortality rates at Elder were 83 per cent lower in comparison to care homes, with huge thanks to the carers we work with showing unbelievable acts of selflessness and a staggering level of dedication.
“We’re striving to do right by carers, so that those that need care can have the chance to choose where they are most comfortable. For many, this may still be the care home, but this could also be due to a lack of awareness around other care options.
“You may have been inspired by the heroic efforts of care workers throughout the pandemic. You may be working in the health and social care space but want more flexibility over your schedule. You may have spent time looking after a loved one and seen how rewarding this sector can be.
“Whichever of these situations you’re in, we want to hear from you. You can be an integral part of a solution that’s keeping people safe and helping people get access to the care option they’d prefer.”
