Due to sustained growth in demand for its homecare services Bluebird Care has 30 vacancies for care assistants to be filled over the next three months. The vacancies are in both Galway city and county.
The basic qualification for care assistants today is the QQI Level 5 in healthcare support, but don’t worry if you don’t have the qualification as Bluebird Care can help and support you to attain it within its very successful From Training to a Job programme, which provides all the required modules on a part-time basis at its training centre in Parkmore, Galway. The From Training to a Job programme is open to anybody who wishes to become a qualified care assistant and it comes with the added bonus of the possibility of a job with Ireland's leading Q Mark and ISO9001 approved homecare provider.
The multi-award winning Bluebird Care first opened its doors in Galway on October 1 2008, and has since become one of the most successful and respected providers of homecare in the area. It now employs 140 staff and the business enjoys a very low level of staff turnover with many staff members still working with the company since its inception. Low staff turnover is important in the homecare industry as customers expect and deserve ongoing continuity of care, which is what Bluebird Care strives to deliver on a daily basis.
Care Manager Carolyn said: “Bluebird Care is an extremely successful business and I firmly believe that our success is down to having a sincere respect for both staff and customers alike, and this is borne out by the fact that our staff turnover is running at just three per cent while the national industry average is 11 per cent, and our customer base continues to grow every month since the day we opened. Of course excellent service delivery is a must for any business to achieve the level of success and growth we are currently achieving.”
Bluebird Care is a HSE approved homecare supplier since 2008 and also provides homecare services privately to individuals who wish to remain at home and in their community for all of their lives.
