Cera Care, the British private home care services provider has announced that it will create 10,000 new jobs across the UK.

The new jobs include professional carer roles and jobs such as delivering groceries and medication to the homes of service users. The online recruitment drive is already underway. A representative of the company said that the newly created jobs, although first and foremost finalised to help vulnerable and elderly people cope with the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, are intended to be long-term positions. The company encouraged people who had recently lost their jobs to apply and retrain as carers using the company’s online skills development courses.

Cera Care was founded in London in 2016, operates nationwide and has about 20 partnerships with NHS organisations, councils, and public organisations.
