Nua Healthcare has revealed plans to create 470 new roles across the country.
The private sector provider of intellectual disability and mental health services in Ireland has already employed 300 people since March.
The new roles will be located in the company’s existing sites in 22 Irish counties, with Nua Healthcare planning to open more locations in seven counties.
According to Nua Healthcare, new jobs include general and psychiatric nursing, psychiatrist, psychologist, behavioral and occupational therapist, assisted support worker and social care worker.
This expansion comes as Nua Healthcare has noted the ongoing growth and need for its services at the national level. The company, which was established in 2004, currently employs over 2,000 people across Ireland.
There will be some supporting roles open to those without previous healthcare experience. Nua Healthcare also offers opportunities for newcomers to the healthcare role through a training program to meet the growing demand.
“The new health services range will span operations and services nationally and care support roles will be especially open to all, including those who have not previously worked in the health industry,” said Chief Operating Officer Shane Kenney.
“We provide residential, supported living, day and community outreach services to both children and adults with many complex support needs that require a lot of patience and empathy,” he said.
