A South Yorkshire based care home company is launching a huge recruitment drive to fill 100 new posts.

The Horizon Care Group, who run Waterside Grange and Anston Brook in Dinnington and Wood Hill Grange in Sheffield, are looking to recruit nurses, support workers, care assistants, kitchen staff, maintenance and cleaning.  

They are also looking for physiotherapists, occupational therapists and therapy assistants as part of their drive to introduce rehabilitation as part of the package they offer.

Laura Higginbottom, managing director of Horizon, said: “This is a great opportunity for people to develop their career in care.

“Wood Hill Grange has recently celebrated its second anniversary and Waterside Grange has been up and running for a number of months. The opening of Anston Brook and expansion at our other sites mean that we need to recruit a large number of new staff members.

“We provide excellent facilities, excellent rooms and we need excellent staff to ensure that our provision is of the highest standard.

“Being a local family run business is something that we are extremely proud of and we are delighted to be not only offering fantastic facilities but also boosting the local economy by providing employment for people from across the region.

“Our staff team make a real difference when someone is choosing a place to live and that is why we dedicate so much to selecting and training the right people.” 

Horizon is a family business set up by the Higginbottom family when a member of the family suffering from Alzheimer’s disease needed full time care.  Their personal experiences led them to set up the company.

Interested parties should send their CVs to Recruitment at Horizon, 116 Great House, Redwall Close, Dinnington, Sheffield, South Yorkshire S25 3QA or email
