An award-winning care home provider with homes in the Highlands and Moray is launching a new incentive programme to attract nurses from across the country.

Parklands Care Homes, which operates nine homes in the north and has its headquarters in Grantown, will offer a £2000 welcome bonus to new full-time nurses.

Parklands has also launched a ‘refer a friend’ bonus scheme for existing staff in a bid to encourage more people to work in the care sector.

Manuela Flueckiger, Manager of People and Culture at Parklands Care Homes, said: “The UK has a severe shortage of nurses which means we have to compete to attract high calibre professionals.

"We want the best for our residents, after all, so for a limited time we’re offering a £2000 welcome bonus for new nurses.

“Parklands operates in smaller, rural communities across the Highlands and Moray, areas with a limited pool of available and qualified staff.

"Our hope is that this incentive will encourage nurses in other parts of Scotland, and indeed across the UK, to consider working in these beautiful locations and join our award-winning team.”

Parklands operates homes in Tain, Fortrose, Muir of Ord, Grantown, Aberlour, Keith and Buckie, where it has three homes.

The company was named Best Smaller Care Home Group in the 2020 Care Home Awards.

Parklands will begin work on a new care hub in Inverness this year, comprising a 58 bed care home and 11 assisted living homes.
