As a multi-home care provider in Northern Ireland, Amstecos is frequently in the market for employable new recruits to join its team. Its partnership with Ingeus reflects a joint commitment to care about applicants put forward for vacancies and the responsible, considerate roles they are being asked to undertake.
“Ingeus takes care to understand the roles and working environment we offer,” explains HR Manager, James Agnew. “I know that anyone put forward will have been given a thorough grounding in the practicalities of working in a care home and so I’m happy to interview anyone Ingeus recommends to me. Their applicants often have excellent transferable skills that can be flexed with our in-house training.
“Ingeus gives me options. It’s important to us to recruit locally and reflect the diverse communities in which we operate. We’re now in double figures for care assistants we’ve employed via Ingeus; if people are enthusiastic, willing to work hard, and learn new skills then we know we’re on to a winner.”
Based in Belfast, Ingeus delivers the Work and Wellbeing programme, part of the Steps 2 Success initiative, to help long term unemployed people and those with disabilities and health conditions back into work.
