Growing home care provider Alcedo Care Group has announced the opening of three new offices in Wigan, St Helens and Bury.
Strengthening its presence in Greater Manchester, Alcedo has invested more than £600,000 in the offices, and the company plans to recruit more than 400 carers this year alone.
Alcedo has relocated its office in Wigan, previously located on Market Street, to a bigger facility in Beecham Court. This will support 30 carers and 10 administrative staff.
The office in St Helens is located at St Helens Technology Campus, which will initially serve 120 clients in the area, while in Bury, the office is situated at Walshaw Park House on Walshaw Road, starting off with a team of 20 administrative staff and carers.
The news comes as Alcedo eyes major growth plans for 2021, creating 750 jobs across the North West.
Andy Boardman (pictured), managing director at Alcedo Care, commented: “This year has started well and in quick succession we opened three new offices in Greater Manchester, which will allow us to offer our award-winning services to more clients in the area.
“The demand for high-quality home care continues and our comprehensive range of services not only meets the needs of our existing clients in Wigan, St Helens and Bury, but also appeals to potential new clients in these demographic areas too. It also brings job creation to Greater Manchester with an initial team employed at each office and an additional 400 carers required throughout 2021.”
The offices in Wigan, St Helens and Bury brings the total number of Alcedo Care offices in the North West to eight, complementing the existing offices in Southport, Blackpool, Preston, Lancaster and Liverpool.
