Newcross Named 4th Biggest Employer in Devon and Cornwall

A list of the top 150 companies across Devon and Cornwall has put Newcross Healthcare Solutions in 4th place for being one of the region’s biggest employers.

The list of Top 150 companies was revealed at the launch of the Western Morning News Annual Business Guide 2017 on July 5th and shows that from 2016 to 2017 Newcross climbed the 7th biggest employer spot to 4th.  According to the list, Newcross now employs over 2,320 in the Devon and Cornwall region.

Newcross has a proud history of providing employment to Devon and Cornwall as the region was the first we expanded into. In 1999 we opened the first branch in Torquay and since then have opened branches in Exeter, Barnstaple, Plymouth and Truro. We’ve always had a strong connection with Devon and the wider southwest region as our headquarters are based in the small village of Berry Pomeroy, a short drive from Totnes and in the heart of beautiful Devonshire countryside.

Co-founder, Michelle Gorringe said, “We’ve come a long way in 21 years and the news that we are the regions 4th largest employer shows just how dedicated we are to providing clients in Devon and Cornwall with excellent care. We have evolved from a single branch providing nursing care in the Torquay area to a nationwide company with over 56 local branches and over 7,500 employees.”

Treating our staff well right across the country is at the centre of what we do and our aim of providing stability and rewarding employment to healthcare professionals is part of the reason why we are one of the nation’s top employers. At Newcross we employ permanent staff, and with over 200 training courses on offer, we help them develop their career with Newcross. All of our healthcare professionals have minimum hours guaranteed in their contracts giving them the security of a steady income.
