Jobs boost for South Coast as Newcross Healthcare launch new Chichester office

One of the UK’s largest providers of healthcare professionals has confirmed that it will be creating at least 100 new jobs in the region by opening a new office in Chichester.

On Tuesday 2nd August 2016, Newcross Healthcare officially launched a new centre in South Street, Chichester with an event attended by a number of special guests and local dignitaries including Councillor Peter Budge, Mayor of Chichester.

Newcross provide healthcare staff for private, public and individual clients, and this launch marks the 52nd office in a growing network spanning England, Wales and Scotland 

The new Chichester office is anticipated to create over 100 permanent positions for nurses, healthcare assistants and support staff throughout the local region.

“We are a nationwide business, but our services are very much tailored to local neighbourhoods and the varying needs of individuals who need care and support,” said Kelly-Marie Harris, Regional Operations Manager for Newcross.

“Our new office will serve as both an administrative centre, a hub for a clinical support and a venue for advanced training programmes. Having a dedicated Chichester branch will enable us to develop even closer relationships with local staff and end-users. It’s easier to maintain high standards of both management and care when we’re right at the heart of the community.”

Claire Wilson, recently appointed as Business Centre Manager, will be responsible for the new Chichester Branch. She explained that Healthcare in Britain is changing rapidly.

Modern care is often very complex, which demands highly skilled staff. Care is also being delivered in a wider range of places; not just hospitals and residential centres but increasingly within people’s own homes. Having an agile and responsive workforce is essential.”

Newcross Healthcare is a leading employer of healthcare staff, offering permanent contracts, ongoing training and flexible working hours thereby providing staff with greater control of their working lives.

The Chichester office will provide new local jobs as well as collaborating with Newcross’s established Southampton and Eastbourne offices.

Claire went on to highlight her recruitment drive in West Sussex and further afield on the South Coast:  

“It’s a great honour to be part of a success story that we can all be proud of. We’re growing and we’re actively looking for talented, qualified staff to join our team.”
