Award-winning care home operator Balhousie Care Group is bucking the national trend and recruiting across its 26 care facilities.

While a number of high-profile companies announce job cuts, the Perth-based care provider is ramping up recruitment as it re-opens its care homes to visitors after a four-month lockdown.

Balhousie Care Group created temporary jobs and casual contracts during lockdown as it sought to fill spaces created by staff who were self-isolating or facing childcare demands. It now has permanent roles available, including carers, support workers and nurses, at its care homes in Perthshire and Angus.

Among the care homes looking to recruit are Balhousie North Grove in Perth, which specialises in dementia care, Balhousie Pitlochry, Balhousie Lisden in Kirremuir, and Balhousie Glens in Brechin.

Jill Kerr, Group, Chief Executive Officer at Balhousie Care Group, said: “We’re on the hunt for people who are excited about a career in the care sector and the rewards and opportunities for progression that come with it. In return for a commitment to high standards of care, we offer competitive salaries and training, and the chance to be part of an innovative and award-winning company in a growing sector.”

Jill added: “We’re delighted to be bucking the trend and offering positive news to job seekers at a challenging time for everyone. It’s an exciting time to be joining Balhousie Care Group as we continue to invest in our facilities and our people.”
