Homecare provider Connected Health has announced the creation of 100 new social care jobs in County Mayo.
The domiciliary care company made the announcement at the official opening of its new office in Castlebar.
The new full and part-time care assistant roles will be based throughout Mayo as part of an overall drive by Connected Health to recruit 1,000 carers across the island of Ireland this year.
The new office in the town is the sixth to be opened by the company since it began operations in the Republic of Ireland in 2019.
Fine Gael TD, Alan Dillon officially cut the ribbon at the new Connected Health office at Garvey House, Castle Street, Castlebar today.
He said the opening of Connected Health’s office in Castlebar is a real positive. “It not only brings 100 new jobs and employment to the local area but will also provide a local solution for older people and their families who need home care to remain active and engaged in their communities across Mayo”.
Connected Health Area Manager for Mayo, Laura McNamara says no experience is required for applicants, as full training will be provided to successful candidates - both face to face in the new Castlebar facility, and online via the Connected Health Academy.
