More than 30 jobs created as new care complex gets set to open
Job seekers are being encouraged to apply for vacancies at a brand new state-of-the-art extra care complex which is set to open in Solihull later this year.
Hampton House, which will feature 32 apartments for rent and to part buy/part rent, will be managed by the Abbeyfield Society, in close partnership with Solihull Council, with care provided by leading housing and care provider the Accord Group.
There are more than 30 permanent vacancies on offer, including those for personal care assistants, senior personal care assistants, night-time care assistants and an administration assistant.
The Accord Group is also looking to recruit a manager to oversee the day-to-day running of Hampton House, which will cater for older people with a range of needs and disabilities when it opens in October.
Job hunters can find out more information about the vacancies and apply for positions online by visiting www.accordgroup.org.uk/vacancies.
David Williams, Director of Care and Support for the Accord Group, said: “Helping people into work is important to us, especially in the current economic climate, which is why we are delighted to announce the creation of 30 new and permanent jobs, of which five will be apprenticeships.
“We are looking for people who have a real passion for working and caring for older people with different needs and in return we can offer a great place to work with opportunities to develop and train.”
Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, Councillor Bob Sleigh said: “This new extra care service will significantly increase the choice available for older people in the borough. Hampton House will provide a type of service people are increasingly requesting because it will help them to maintain independence and increase control over their daily life.”
Hampton House, on Hampton Lane, Solihull, is a purpose build development by the Abbeyfield Society, in partnership with Solihull Council. This extra care scheme will provide an alternative to residential care and features a host of onsite amenities, including a hairdressers, well-being centre, restaurant and a 24-hour emergency alarm system.
Care and support at the complex will be provided by leading housing and care organisation the Accord Group, which is one of the largest providers of its kind in the West Midlands.
