A BRADFORD based care provider has launched a recruitment campaign to employ 10 nurses by January 2015. Czajka Care Group, which runs five nursing homes and provides home and domiciliary care to over 550 people in Yorkshire, is targeting both trainee and experienced nurses in the UK and overseas.
Konrad Czajka, Managing Director of Czajka Care Group and Yorkshire Chair of The Registered Nursing Home Association (RNHA) says: “It’s vital that as the NHS continues to cut senior nursing posts and drive cost savings that the private sector takes advantage of the skills and experience of those nurses. We currently have several positions that would be ideal for nurses that have previously worked in the NHS and can provide excellent training to further enhance their knowledge base.”
According to the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) the NHS has lost nearly 4,000 senior nursing posts since 2010 as it aims to save £20bn by 2015. Konrad adds: “We are appealing to trainee and experienced nurses to consider a role in the private sector. Many nurses in the NHS tell us they feel overstretched and under resourced and we know that we can offer the training and development that many nurses crave.”
Czajka Care Group is hosting a number of informative events at Universities in Leeds and Bradford to attract student nurses and currently provides continued professional development and training at its dedicated training centre in Saltaire to its 500 staff.
Konrad concludes: “We want our nurses to feel valued, well-trained and supported – both financially and emotionally. We value our clinical staff and understand the important role they play in the care and welfare of our residents. That’s why we strive to create an environment where clinicians and care staff can work effectively together with good supportive management to help reduce workplace stress and we hope that this will help to attract nurses looking to further their careers.”
Czajka Care Group operates five nursing and care homes as well as offering a range of purpose built retirement houses and apartments across West Yorkshire. For more information visit www.czajka.co.uk or for more information
