Currently employing around 300 members of staff, the firm as seen a rising demand for homecare services and is looking for suitably skilled applicants, in a bid to expand its reach into parts of South Tyneside and Gateshead.

The organisation is seeking to recruit people for a range of care roles including personal support assistants, team leaders, co-ordinators and assistant managers.

Alma Caldwell, group chief executive at EveryDay, said: “We have embarked on the next phase of expansion and this will provide work for at least 360 care professionals in the next twelve months. We have seen a huge increase in demand for our services and that will rise further as the population gets older and people live longer.

“The key challenge for us is finding sufficient people with the requisite level of skills. We will also be recruiting people with basic skills and providing training for them as they embark on a rewarding career with us.”
