TLC has announced the creation of 65 new jobs to meet the growing demand for care following the coronavirus outbreak.

We are looking for people who have a passion to support people with learning disabilities and complex needs across Colchester, Halstead, Clacton, Southend and Stansted.

As our Operations Director Alan Betts (pictured) explains: “We are a growing business and we were already looking to take on more staff to look after vulnerable people in our residential care homes as well as to provide supported living services to people in their own homes. However, the need is now even greater and more urgent, especially as some staff are self-isolating during this very challenging time.

“We are looking for people with a caring nature who see this as a long-term career, not a short-term stop gap, because of the training that we give and the career prospects that we offer. We have both full and part-time jobs, including support worker roles and care co-ordinators.

“Our jobs are very interesting and varied and involve helping people to live independently, while promoting their dignity and well-being. Normally this would involve helping them to attend college, clubs, employment or volunteering and, in some cases, providing personal care.

“However, as people now have to stay put and cannot go out, it involves helping them to stay safe and providing interesting and enjoyable activities to pass the time of day.

“As an organisation, we have been working hard to provide innovative solutions and stimulating activities to keep individuals entertained and we are looking for new staff to join our team who would like to work in a friendly and caring environment.

“If people have recently been laid off and are looking for a fulfilling and rewarding long term career that offers paid training and an immediate start, we would like to hear from them.”
