Bluebird Care is adding 22 positions in Galway for nurses, carers, care coordinators, and nurse managers as it takes on new contracts.
Recently, Bluebird secured tenders to provide care for the elderly at all nine Community Healthcare Organisations in Ireland.
To meet these new contracts, Bluebird Care is hiring 450 new staff across its 26 offices around Ireland, adding to the 1,800 people it already employs.
These will be care positions rooted in the local community, with a variety of full-time and part-time jobs available.
Managing Director of Bluebird Care Brian MacGoey said they were delighted to be awarded contracts from all nine CHO’s.
“Winning nine out of nine contracts with the Community Health Organisations further endorses Bluebird Care’s commitment to standards of care and our ability to attract the best people.”
“We are committed to providing high-quality, safe and effective care in our client’s own home which is, more often than not, their preferred place of care.”
Community Health Organisations provide those healthcare services that fall outside of the acute hospital system including Primary Care, Social Care, Mental Health, and Health & Wellbeing Services.
They’re funded by the HSE, but services are delivered through agencies and organisations within local communities, as close to people’s homes as possible.
Galway falls within CHO 2, along with Mayo and Roscommon. Bluebird is adding 20 new jobs at its office covering Sligo and Mayo, and 10 in the one for Roscommon, Longford, and Westmeath.
Bluebird Care provides health and social care for people within their own home on behalf of the HSE and other agencies.
The new jobs that Bluebird is adding to meet these contracts will be created over the next 12 months.
The full list of jobs being created at each of Bluebird’s offices is:
|Louth, Cavan and Monaghan||20|
|Donegal and Leitrim||8|
|Longford, Roscommon and Westmeath||10|
|Laois & Offaly||20|
|Tipperary and East Cork||10|
|Cork North & South Lee||30|
|Kilkenny, Carlow and Waterford||15|
|Dublin North East||20|
|Wicklow & Dublin South East||25|
|Dublin South West||20|
|Sligo and Mayo||20|
“Our unique and dynamic working environment allows for rewarding and flexible employment opportunities for potential key staff. With this in mind, we are delighted to begin recruiting caring and compassionate people to join the Bluebird Care team,” said Brian MacGoey.
Open Days are being held for those who wish to apply for one of these positions at Bluebird Care offices around the country.
The open day in Galway will take place on Wednesday, September 12 at their office in Galway Technology Park, Parkmore from 10am to 4pm.
