Extra Care, Northern Ireland’s longest established domiciliary care charity is creating 28 new jobs across the country as part of its three-year Strategic Plan.

Due to continued growth and in line with the organisation’s ambitious strategy, this significant investment will be in excess of £190,000 allowing for the creation of 20 Care Worker positions and eight senior roles in areas including Finance, Operations and Senior Care staff.

Last year, Extra Care undertook an in-depth report which identified a need to introduce more senior staff across Northern Ireland to enable it to strengthen links within the community, ensure the provision of high-quality services and provide a platform for continued growth.

The majority of roles will be based across East Belfast, Carrickfergus/Larne and Cookstown, whilst the finance and the Operational Management roles will be located at the Extra Care headquarters in Antrim.

Extra Care currently employs over 300 staff across Northern Ireland, committed to providing Service Users with the support they need to maintain living in their home their way.

Brian Hutchinson, CEO of Extra Care said, “We are delighted to announce this significant investment which will greatly lead to driving the charity into its next phase. Our priority is always to put our clients first. The forward-thinking Strategic Plan for 2019 – 2022 will allow us to continually provide the best Person-Centred care, and with new staff on board it can be achieved. We want to ensure that Extra Care remains at the heart of our communities, providing high quality care, allowing people to remain living at home with dignity and respect.”

Brian adds, “Extra Care is committed to its workforce and our people are our greatest asset. We want to build on our already brilliant team whilst striving to provide the best care for our clients.”
