Connected Health To Create 200 Care Jobs In Belfast & NI

Connected Health, a home care provider in the private sector, has announced expansion plans which will create 200 care jobs in Belfast and other parts of Northern Ireland.

Connected Health already provides care jobs for around 450 people in Northern Ireland, but, with the opening of a new Connected Academy accredited training facility in Belfast, expects to add a further 45 per cent to its headcount in the country.

Announcing the Northern Ireland jobs, the Chair of Connected Health, Brian O’Connor, said: “We are delighted to announce the continued growth of the Connected Health family with the recruitment of 200 new roles. Recruitment will begin immediately, and the new employees will be deployed in supported living, care and training roles across Belfast, North Down and other health trust areas across Northern Ireland.”

“The highest possible standards of training and development will be provided to all new recruits to continue to promote opportunity, aspiration and career progression throughout our organisation,” added Mr O’Connor.

Chairman of the Connected Health clinical governance board, Professor George Crooks OBE, also commented, saying: “The Connected Academy is the first of its kind in Northern Ireland and will deliver first-class professional development opportunities for our growing team.

“Our partners in the OCN Northern Ireland, the awarding body, will assist in providing a learning pathway for our carers from basic level one to HND and foundation degree level. This partnership provides a superb avenue for development for new and existing employees in the ever-growing Connected Health family,” added the Professor.
