A provider of award-winning quality home and live-in care is celebrating this week after helping more than 100 people from the local area find work in the last 12 months.
Kim Teagle, Recruitment Manager at Bluebird Care Newbury, has spearheaded the organisation’s efforts to appoint people from a range of backgrounds to the roles of care assistant, care supervisor, care coordinator and care champion.
Kim said: “With a growing positive profile across West Berkshire, we find lots of people coming to us looking for work. It’s been a real privilege to recruit over 100 people, providing them with jobs they enjoy and value. Working in the care industry is extremely rewarding.
