Parklands Care Homes has been caring for older people in the Highlands for almost 30 years, and the company is expanding.
That’s good news for local communities because it means more care beds for our ageing population and the prospect of new career opportunities for local people.
The care provider operates nine care homes across Moray and the Highlands, including Lynemore in Grantown, shortlisted as one of the best new care homes in 2020. Earlier this year, Parklands opened a state-of-the-art care home in Fortrose and it is about to start work on a multimillion-pound care hub in Inverness, its biggest ever investment.
So, for anyone considering a career in the care sector, now is a great time to start.
One of the advantages of working for a company like Parklands is the diversity of employment opportunities it provides.
It has vacancies in Grantown and across the group – for carers, nurses, shift leaders and ancillary staff. Everyone at Parklands plays an important role in the delivery of high-quality care.
Staff who join the firm in any role benefit from a commitment to provide training and a clear career path where their ambition is supported and rewarded.
Age is no barrier to a career in the care sector. Around 40 per cent of the workforce are aged 45-64; many are long serving employees, but some have joined after successful careers in other sectors. It’s never too late to make the change.
Qualifications are not always essential. The in-house Parklands Academy provides high quality training plans including accredited SVQ courses. Crucially, it ensures that staff can continue to work and train in their local communities, develop new skills and gain promotion.
At Parklands, it is recognised that the greatest asset is people. In return for their hard work, the company offers flexible working conditions and competitive salaries. And for a limited time only, there are cash incentives for new staff - £2000 for new full time nurses and £250 for all other new employees. It pays to care at Parklands.
If you’re passionate about delivering high standards, ambitious for the future and determined to make a difference, Parklands wants to hear from you. Care for a career?
