A home care franchise has pledged to create 500 jobs in the West Midlands this year due to increasing demand for its services.
Home Instead Senior Care, which provides helpers for the elderly to live independently in their own homes, already employs 326 staff in seven offices across the region, and most of the new jobs will be for carers.
Staff will report to bases in Cannock, Edgbaston, Solihull, Stratford-upon-Avon, Stourbridge, Sutton Coldfield and Wolverhampton, part of a national network of 115 offices employing more than 3,500 people.
Philip Maundrill, who took over the Warwickshire franchise as managing director a year ago, said he was pleased with his company’s growth rate.
“The expansion of the business bears testament to the service our team provides,” he said.
“It is the unique and high-quality, personal service which we offer that has allowed us to grow so quickly and create these jobs across the West Midlands.”
Home Instead Senior Care, established in the UK in 2006, has a global network of more than 900 offices in 17 countries.
