Carewatch will hold two recruitment days in Inverurie

Ten new jobs are to be created in the Inverurie area, as leading home care provider Carewatch (Grampian) Aberdeenshire launches a vigorous recruitment drive to meet the increasing demands for its services.

Carewatch will be holding Recruitment Open Days for those interested in a rewarding career in social care, with a view to recruiting at least 10 new care and support staff locally. Open days will be held at 1a George Square, Inverurie, AB51 3XX (behind Craigdon Sports) between 10am and 4pm on January 13 and 15, 2015.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available. If you are currently working in care, or interested in a career in care, do come along and meet us.

With life expectancy rising thanks to modern medicine and more people adopting healthy lifestyles, experts expect the fastest growing age group to be the over 65s. While this is a positive, Carewatch emphasises the growing need for carers, who are vital to support people in Inverurie by enabling them to stay independent in their own homes for as long as possible.

Carewatch will be looking to recruit people who are compassionate, considerate and wish to make a real difference to the lives of others. Flexible working hours are offered - from just a few hours each week to full-time – including alternate weekends. The role includes providing personal care and practical support to customers, such as helping people with bathing and dressing, shopping and accompanying them to clubs. In return, full training and support will be given.

Nick Price, Managing Director at Carewatch (Grampian) Aberdeenshire, commented: “Quality care and support workers are key to our organisation’s services, but we need to recruit more if we are to meet the challenges of the UK’s ageing population.

“We’re looking for compassionate people to join our team of professionals, enabling our customers to retain their independence, dignity and security, in their own home. This is a demanding but fulfilling career. If you believe you have the right qualities, we’d love to hear from you.”

If you would like to meet with us on the day, please call Cathy at Carewatch on (01467) 530000 or just come along. For more information visit
