Drive to recruit new carers with Alexandras Community Care

Alexandras Community Care, with offices on Heron Way in Truro, provide reliable and safe home care for residents across Cornwall. With five branches in Cornwall, the dedicated support teams provide person centric and localised care to allow people to stay in their own homes and live as independently as possible.

With a national shortage of carers continuing to affect care businesses in the South West, Alexandras Community Care Truro have been working hard to help promote the caring profession. They have been working closely with the Truro Job Centre to support those who are both long term unemployed and recently without a job.

Teona Bennett, Acting Manager, said: “I found my passion in taking care of people and have been working for Alexandras Care for over three years, and I’m now Acting Manager. I’ve been offered some great opportunities for professional development and career progression.

“The caring profession isn’t always a first-choice career for many, but I know those that do pursue this path find it very rewarding. At Alexandras Care, we are looking to increase our team in Truro and the surrounding area so if you are looking for a flexible career, reach out to us to find out more.”

The team will be holding an event at the Truro Job Centre in the next few months which will provide more information about working in care as well as opportunities to hold interviews with interested participants. There is hope that this will become a regular event to give people an opportunity to gain insight into the caring profession and take the leap to start a new career path.

Working in partnership with other local business is key to the team at Alexandras Community Care, and central to being able to holistically support the local community.  There are exciting collaborations planned, including joining up with New Wave Pilates LTD based opposite in Truro Technology Park, to provide some joint team building sessions.
