Apex announces emergency recruitment drive
As a result of staff shortages due to the spread of Covid-19, Apex Housing Association has launched an emergency recruitment drive to fill much needed roles in its supported living schemes and nursing homes in Derry~Londonderry, Coleraine, Omagh, Castlederg, Strabane, Limavady and Belfast. Essential roles include nurses, support workers, care assistants, catering and housekeeping.
Apex owns and manages a range of schemes including accommodation and nursing homes for older people and supported housing for people with mental health difficulties, learning disabilities, alcohol/drug addictions, those who are physically disabled and young people in need of support.
Sheena McCallion, Chief Executive of Apex, explains:
Over the last few weeks many of our staff have been forced to self-isolate due to Covid-19 and going forward we expect this to continue, if not increase. Our schemes provide essential care and support to some of the most vulnerable people in our communities and these services must continue despite the challenges facing us.
We know people have unfortunately lost their jobs or are currently out of work because of business closures in other sectors. We hope that these roles may be of interest to them in the short to medium term and will help provide an income for them and their families in the coming weeks and months.
Anyone interested in learning more about the roles on offer should contact MPA Recruitment for more information:
