New roles targeted at employees in other sectors who would like a change, current PUP recipients and especially those people with relevant life experiences

Nua Healthcare Services, the largest private sector provider of intellectual disability and mental health services in Ireland, has announced the creation of 300 new jobs countrywide including 25 based in Kilkenny.

The new care support jobs will be spread across operations and services nationally and are open to everyone, including those who have not worked in the healthcare industry before and it is hoped that they will be especially attractive to people with a keen interest in making a positive contribution to their communities, and those who enjoy helping others.

The organisation already employs more than 1,800 people across its operations nationally and as a result of the ongoing growth in the need of its services is creating the new roles for a range of care support positions which will be supported by its new and innovative ‘Educate to Employ’ programme. The inhouse initiative by Nua will provide additional training and education for new employees especially to those who have never worked in the healthcare sector before and it is hoped that the roles will attract people from a range of sectors like retail, hospitality, construction or other healthcare areas who would like a change in career or potentially a shorter commute to work, current PUP recipients and especially those people with relevant life experiences.

“The healthcare industry is incredibly rewarding and our team takes great pride in making true differences to the lives of the people we support. We continually invest in all of our employees here at Nua," said Chief Operating Officer for Nua Shane Kenny.

"We also believe a core reason for success stems from the approach of continually training and developing staff teams and we are especially looking for people who may want to change  their current career path and who believe they have compatible skills born out of relevant life experience which will ultimately enable them to be successful in healthcare services.

“The fact we provide Residential, Supported Living, Day and Community Outreach Services to both Children and Adults with a range of complex support requirements requires great patience and empathy and is very rewarding work. We are proud to offer high standards of service and care and are renowned for offering some of the best facilities in the country. Our residential accommodation combines modern facilities with beautiful outdoor environments and our tailored day care programmes encompass a wide variety of stimulating and enjoyable activities."
