Care company to create 5,000 jobs across the UK
A healthcare-at-home provider has announced plans to create thousands of jobs throughout the UK.
Cera is creating 5,000 new jobs across the country in order to meet growing demand for domestic care.
The majority of the new roles will be in frontline healthcare services such as professional carers and nurses, but the firm will also employ professionals across operations, technology, finance and data.
Co-founder and CEO, Dr Ben Maruthappu, commented: “At the start of the pandemic, we set out to solve two of the most pressing issues facing the UK.
“Firstly, we wanted to reduce pressures placed on the NHS due to the pandemic by bringing more talent into the care sector and, secondly, we wanted to offer jobs to thousands of people to help counter the unemployment crisis, allowing them to retrain and gain fulfilling careers in healthcare.
“We’re enormously proud of the role we’ve been able to play thus far. However, this is just the beginning - in the short-term we plan to grow Cera further, and bring an additional 5,000 new professionals into the health and social care sector during a period of unprecedented pressure.”
