care company expands into Liverpool
A multi award winning social enterprise is to create more than 60 new
jobs, after being awarded a care contract in Liverpool.
CASA Liverpool, part of the Care and Share Associates Group, will be providing
care for adults and children with complex care needs to allow them to remain in
their own homes, after being appointed by Liverpool City Council. And now the
organisation is looking to recruit a number of carers or people who would like
to be trained to work in the profession to become part of the team.
CASA, which has branches across the North East, North West and in Yorkshire;
is an award winning, employee owned social enterprise which re-invests profit
into its workforce and service, by giving all employees free shares, a profit
share and other employee benefits.
At the same time, profits are ploughed back into the company allowing it to
invest more in staff development and training, meaning that all employees have a
vested interest in the company, which has an ethos of:- "putting people
CASA Liverpool is now embarking on a recruitment drive to find support workers
and carers who will be involved in all aspects of personal care including
supporting with health related issues.
Experience in care is not essential as full training is given, CASA is more
interested in people who have a caring nature and are committed to high
standards of care. The company strongly promotes staff training and development
and all new recruits are enrolled for formal qualifications with professional
development and progression opportunities regularly available.
Managing Director, Dr Guy Turnbull, who is also one of CASA's founders, said
having a dedicated workforce was at the heart of the company's success.
Dr Guy Turnbull, said:- "What CASA has done is to find a way to tap into people's natural
creativity and commitment, by giving them a stake in their business and how it
is operated to deliver high quality care. And we are hoping to bring
together a dedicated workforce in Liverpool who can benefit from working for an
organisation which cares as much about its employees as it does about the people
it looks after."
This is the latest in a long line of wins for CASA, which recently also launched
a service in Doncaster to provide domiciliary care and follows on from its
appointment last year to be a leading home care provider in Leeds.
CASA also has branches in Doncaster, Manchester, Leeds, Knowsley, Warrington,
North Tyneside and Newcastle, along with a sister company based in Sunderland.
Mutuality is at the heart of CASA's business, underpinned by the belief that
engaged employee owners will provide highest quality care and low staff
turnover, making the business more successful.
This innovative model of ownership and care was recognised last year by both the
Great British Care Awards and EY, where CASA's MD scooped two major national
awards for Outstanding Contribution to Social Care and Social Entrepreneur of
