Community Integrated Care is offering flexible and rewarding work opportunities with prompt start dates across Wigan.

Prospective colleagues will work in the charity’s frontline services supporting people with learning disabilities, autism, mental health concerns or dementia with their daily routines.

With a streamlined application process, candidates will be able to move from interview to paid work in a week. In the week, vetting checks will take place and prospective colleagues will undertake three days of intensive training.

To support the campaign, the charity has built a website "WorkInCare" where potential candidates can register their interest in opportunities.

Community Integrated Care was awarded the Charity of the Year 2019/20 title at the Charity Times Awards. It supports over 3,500 people across England and Scotland who have care and support needs employing 6,500 staff nationally.

Teresa Exelby, chief people officer at the charity said, “We know that at this difficult time, many people in our communities are seeking reliable work opportunities as a result of the impact of coronavirus. At the same time, care providers like us more than ever need to find great people who can work in our frontline services.”

She added: “We’re excited to be welcoming hundreds of new colleagues to Community Integrated Care who will all be a fantastic addition to our teams across the country.”
