“The profile of live-in care as the best and safest solution has been raised dramatically in the past two years and demand for reliable qualified carers has increased threefold. 

“To be nominated in the best employer category makes me especially proud as we strive to create a happy working environment for our carers who in return look after our clients with outstanding professionalism and genuine empathy.

“We have several roles to fill at the moment ranging from visiting carers, field care supervisors, office based roles and live-in carers.” 

 Corrina Bignall, who joined Ashridge Home Care in May this year as the Recruitment and Training Manager, is actively promoting the SME National Business Award nominations to recruit new carers. 

She said: “Feedback has been great from our existing carers that we’ve been nominated in the Service Excellence category. 

“They are very proud to be part of an organisation that cares so much about delivering the best possible care for its clients and their families.

“I am seeing lots of new candidates who are switching careers at a point in their lives where they want to give back to the community.
