A brand new care home, currently under construction in Buntingford, is creating over 50 job opportunities for local people over the next few months. Layston Grove on Keen Avenue, is due to open in March 2018 and will provide residential and dementia care to 66 residents in luxurious en-suite accommodation.
The home will be the third facility for operator, Oakdale Care Group. Recruitment is already underway for positions within the home such as Care Assistant, Deputy Manager, Kitchen and Domestic staff and Front of House Manager. Once recruited, each new member of the staff team will complete an extensive induction and training programme and will spend time working as a team within the home even before the first residents have moved in.
Andrew Long, CEO of Oakdale Care Group said, “We are really excited to be opening a new home in Buntingford and have already had a great welcome from the local community. Layston Grove will provide a wonderful home for 66 older people and also great job opportunities for over 50 staff. We are all extremely passionate about care and will be promoting care as a positive career choice with plenty of rewards and opportunities.”
Layston Grove will sit proudly on the site of the Royal Army Ordnance Corps Munitions Factory which was most recently used as the Sainsbury’s Anglia Distribution Centre. As well as fully en-suite accommodation, Layston Grove will feature extensive in-house amenities, innovative design and state-of-the-art technology, for an all-inclusive fee to provide transparency and clarity to residents.
