Fifty jobs have been promised in Cork by a home-care organisation, Comfort Keepers, which is opening a new office and expanding into the north of the country.
The company provides home-care help for those struggling to live independently due to illness or other reasons. Care packages range from a half an hour per week to 24 hour live-in care for a full year.
The expansion includes the opening of a new office dedicated to the north Cork region within the next two months. Property negotiations are being finalised but it is expected that the office will be located in the Mitchelstown/Mallow area.
The company already employs over 100 people and to cater for its growing workforce the company has had to relocate to a larger premises in the Melbourne Business Park on the Model Farm Road.
Sales and marketing manager with Comfort Keepers, Sue Cogan, said the new premises in Cork city and the new office in north Cork will allow the company to provide more services in the region.
“The move to the bigger premises in the Melbourne Business Park will help us to expand our service offering and give the team some more badly needed office space.
“The opening of the new office in north Cork region and the recruitment of 50 new carers over the coming months will allow us to offer a greater number of home care packages giving older people in Cork and surrounding areas the option to live independently in their homes with a little help from our dedicated team of carers,” she said.
Comfort Keepers is a leading provider home care in Ireland.
The family-owned company employs qualified carers all of whom are fully trained, background checked and managed by Comfort Keepers.
The organisation operates 12 offices in the country.
