Home care firm creates 40 new jobs in county.

A HOMECARE firm has announced plans to expand in Warwickshire this month - creating about 40 new jobs for the region.

Helping Hands Homecare is developing its network in the Warwick, Leamington and Kenilworth areas, providing a much-needed jobs boost for the county.

Set up in 1989, Helping Hands is an award-winning, family-run business, which employs over 600 people locally and 1,200 nationally.

Growing demand for the service has led the firm to recruit and train 40 more carers to join the Warwickshire team.

The business supports older people and those with disabilities, and offers visits from as little as half an hour a day right through to ongoing 24-hour, live-in support.

Carers will be responsible for providing a homecare service that can embrace companionship, housekeeping through to full personal care.

Tim Lee, chief executive of Helping Hands, said: "Our carers already provide a fantastic service and we want to be able to bring that to new areas.

"The excellent work our carers do has meant that our reputation is growing, meaning we need more equally committed and passionate carers throughout the region."

The firm will be hosting a recruitment event on Tuesday, January 15, between 10am and 5pm at the company's head office in Church Street, in Alcester.

A second event will take place during the same hours on Friday, January 18, at Brunswick Healthy Living Centre in Leamington.
