IT is an exciting time for an Altrincham-based firm who are looking to create 800 new jobs in the next two years.

New Care, the UK’s fastest growing development-led care home provider, is continuing to expand at pace, having recently opened its ninth care facility.

This year, New Care will open a further three new care facilities in Adel, Wilmslow and Lymm, and a further four care homes are also under construction with practical completion dates planned throughout 2023 and January, 2024.

The firm is looking to recruit a wide range of individuals covering care, hospitality, housekeeping, maintenance and wellbeing.

Alex Fairhurst, New Care’s recruitment lead, is a social care ambassador for the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Careers Hub, and within her role, aims to demonstrate the mix of job opportunities available, breaking down the stigma about working in social care and ultimately inspire individuals to consider a career in the sector.

Alex started her career as a care assistant with Four Seasons progressing to administrative positions, before joining New Care in a recruitment role.

She said: “Working in the care sector is hugely rewarding and as a company, New Care understands how important it is to highlight this.

“With a good selection of roles available within each of our care facilities, we can nurture careers across a number of industries, from chefs, waiters, front of house and housekeeping to carers, nurses, wellbeing and recruitment.

“My own career in care is reflective of this.

“It really is an incredibly exciting time to work for New Care as the company continues to expand.

“With the opening of several new care homes in the pipeline for the next 24 months, recruitment will play a large part in the firm’s future strategy.”

With approximately 810 employees currently, the confirmation of 800 new jobs over the course of the next two years will see New Care double in size – a significant achievement for a privately owned, family business.

Renowned for recognising and rewarding employees on a regular basis, New Care is committed to maintaining good retention rates within the company, further highlighting its dedicated approach to delivering purposeful careers in care.

Part of the McGoff Group, New Care is one of the UK’s leading care home providers. Its portfolio of purpose-built ‘new generation’ care centres is fast gaining an enviable reputation for outstanding care that is second to none. For further information, visit
