Home care provider, Bluebird Care, has launched a new careers website to help people learn more about working in the care sector.
The website, www.bluebirdcarecareers.co.uk, makes starting a career with Bluebird Care clear and easy. The new site acts as a strong resource for those looking to find out more about the care sector. It also details what a career in care can entail. The helpful Case Studies and FAQs pages give valuable insight into the industry and the ethos of Bluebird Care.
As unemployment is set to rise even more significantly over the coming months, Bluebird Care hopes their new website will encourage people to pursue a rewarding career in home care. Their careers website clearly highlights the opportunities for training and development, and the specialisms that a Care Assistant at Bluebird Care is able to develop.
The careers website provides information on roles at Bluebird Care that are administrative, and office based, not just customer facing. As the home care provider has offices in all regions, including Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, their franchise network provides opportunities across the UK.
Bluebird Care’s career website launch comes after bluebirdcare.co.uk won the Kentico Website of the Year Award 2019 in the Home Care Category, with their web agency, Distinction. The panel judging the awards said that the Bluebird Care website was the “obvious choice in the health care category”. They praised the website for its large scale, geolocation functionality, and outstanding year-to-year performance.
James Bloor, Managing Director and Cofounder of the digital firm, Distinction, said:
“We’re proud to work with Bluebird Care, one of the top homecare companies in the UK, whose community of care assistants and homecare customers are facing incredibly difficult challenges right now. So, whilst winning the award for best website in the healthcare sector is a fantastic achievement for our team, it’s also the perfect moment to say thank you to our care professionals and to shine the light on the good work Bluebird Care is doing to support the care community.”
Hannah Banfield, Marketing and Communications Director, Bluebird Care, said:
“We are delighted that Distinction won the award for Kentico Site of the Year 2019 for our bluebirdcare.co.uk website. The site has to deliver for multiple stakeholders including prospective customers and potential recruits, as well as satisfying the needs of a network of nearly 200 franchise owners.
“With our new careers website, we hope to emulate the success of bluebirdcare.co.uk, utilising the adaptability of the site for recruitment purposes. The health and social care sector is very much in the spotlight right now, amid covid-19, and so we hope the site will not only provide a clear pathway into a career at Bluebird Care, but also act as a key resource that provides valuable information about the significant benefits of working in the care sector.”
