Care provider offers 25 jobs to meet growing demand

Home Instead Ilkley, which provides at-home care across the Aire and Wharfe Valleys is looking for new recruits to join its growing business.

The firm has 25 roles for people with or without experience in the care sector - and hopes its recruitment drive will help boost employment locally after a tough year for many people who've found themselves out of work.

Home Instead says it's looking for caregivers to meet an increase in demand because of the pandemic - and says a 'warm heart and desire to make a difference' is prized over previous experience in the care sector.

The company provides services from companionship through to personal care and specialised dementia care - it's also looking for 5 live-in caregivers, who move into a client’s home and provide care.

Simon White, owner of Home Instead Ilkley, says: “It’s heartbreaking to see some successful businesses in the area suffer due to the virus. Across Ilkley, Skipton and the whole of West Yorkshire, there are people whose future employment is uncertain through no fault of their own. We’re looking for 25 kind-hearted and friendly people to join our team of caregivers who provide care and companionship to seniors across the area.

“Whether you have faced redundancy or want to try something new, we’d love you to consider working for Home Instead. You don’t need to have a background in care- we will offer you the training you need and immerse you in the company’s values which ensure that the care we deliver is outstanding.”
