Bluebird Care agency expands to create jobs in Paulton

Forty jobs are to be created by a care agency based at the Somer Valley Enterprise Park at Paulton.

Bluebird Care (Bath and North East Somerset), which also has officers in Bath, will be holding pop-up recruitment fairs in the New Year to attract the extra staff.

Bluebird Care already employs 80 staff locally who provide care and support to the elderly, people with physical disabilities and adults with learning disabilities.

The company provides care in the home and specialises in working with customers who suffer from dementia, physical and learning disabilities.

It works alongside their families, social services, GPs and NHS trusts to ensure each person receives the care they need.

Managing director, Tim Rowland-Jones, pictured, said: “Employing committed and passionate care staff has been a huge part of our success.

“We will only ever be as good as the staff we employ and our staff are excellent.

“They are always professional and have real empathy for the people they look after.”

Mr Rowland Jones set up his business in 2010 after being inspired by the quality of care his late grandfather received in his final months.

He runs the local franchise of what is a national operation.

Its services range from from 15-minute check visits to full live-in support.
