Leading healthcare provider announces 10,000 new jobs to help the NHS

Cera Care is set to hire 10,000 frontline staff this year to address NHS pressures as wait times hit record highs.

At a time when over 13,000 hospital beds are occupied by patients fit to be discharged into social care, and new data shows that 54,000 patients are waiting for over 12 hours to be seen in A&E, there is no doubt that carers are needed more than ever.

Leading home healthcare provider, Cera, announced yesterday that it is creating 10,000 new jobs across the UK to bolster the care sector and put thousands of people back to work during the current economic crisis.

According to research completed by the ONS, the unemployment rate in 2022 increased to 3.7%.

The majority of roles offered by Cera will be centred around frontline healthcare services such as professional carers and nurses to accelerate and facilitate the sectors growth.

Regarding applications, individuals are encouraged to apply with retail, hospitality, and leisure experience to ensure they are confident when working with other people.

Care also offers flexible hours for people looking to take on extra work alongside a primary role that will help someone earn more and help ease cost-of-living pressures.

Although research that was uncovered yesterday by the ONS displayed the rate of inflation to be dropping, the price of food will continue to soar over the coming months.

Equipped with award-winning technology, Cera is able to effectively recruit, train and certify new careers within a matter of days – in 2021 the digital company set a target to fill 10,000 jobs throughout the pandemic, which is achieved months ahead of schedule.

Dr Ben Maruthappu MBE, CEO and Co-founder of Cera, said: ‘Britian is facing a dual crisis – an economic one and a second that grips our health service. We need to discharge well-enough patients out of hospital and into their homes more rapidly, to free up much-needed beds in hospitals and reduce the mounting pressure on the NHS.

‘We are hoping this ambitious jobs programme goes some way to solving both crises: helping people return to work at a challenging time and allowing us to deliver millions more healthcare visits each year.

‘Our technology allows us to effectively recruit and train new carers in record time, to rapidly expand our care capacity.

‘We are proud to be creating 10,000 new jobs this year in what is an incredibly rewarding sector.’
