CASA to create 300 jobs in Leeds

More than 300 jobs are to be created in Leeds as a result of a new partnership between social enterprise CASA Leeds and Leeds City Council.

CASA Leeds, part of employee owned social enterprise Care and Share Associates Group, has become one of four prime providers working with the council to offer a range of social care services.

The new contract win means that the organisation is now looking to employ staff covering a variety of roles, including care managers, coordinators, supervisors and home support workers.

The partnership aims to ensure that people in the region are provided with a range of care services which will allow them to stay in their own homes and live independently, whilst receiving additional tailored support.

Denise McEvoy, CASA Leeds’ director of care services, said: “We are very proud that our professionalism, compassion and reliability has been recognised by both the council and the Care Quality Commission.”

Jason Lane, commissioning manager for adult social care, added his support: “We look forward to working with CASA Leeds and other providers to make a success of the new contracts.”
