Saint Cecilia’s Care Group in Scarborough has launched new long service awards for its staff, recognising those who have worked for five years and upwards.

At the same time it is starting a recruitment drive to bring more staff into the group to help provide award-winning care to older and vulnerable people in Scarborough and Pickering.

Saint Cecilia’s Managing Director, Mike Padgham said: “Our staff are the vital component in the care we offer and we are very keen to recognise those who have been with us for some time, as loyalty is a highly-valued quality.

“We have now begun giving out badges, certificates and vouchers to members of the team who have been with us at least five years, with different rewards for five, ten, fifteen, twenty, twenty-five and thirty years!

“It is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to them for all their hard work – particularly during the past 15 months.”

The company is looking to recruit care assistants, for days and nights, and team leaders, for its homes in Scarborough and Pickering.

Mr Padgham added: “We are looking to strengthen our team and looking to reach people who are looking for a care post.

“It is a hugely rewarding role and plays a really important and significant role in looking after some of the community’s most vulnerable.”

It is running roadshows at The Hideout, Columbus Ravine, Scarborough, from 9.30am – 12.30pm on Tuesday 29th June and in Market Place, Pickering from 10-12pm and at the Alba Rose Care Home 12.30 – 2.30pm, both on Thursday 1st July.

The company offers a competitive rate of pay with lots of benefits, including a ‘golden hello’ package and refer a friend scheme.
