60 jobs available as North East care home operator starts major recruitment drive

North East care home provider Executive Care is looking for to fill 60 new jobs as part of a major corporate review.

The firm, which operates six homes across the region employing more than 600 people, have also recently recruited to their management team, including a new executive chairman, Simon Harrison.

Tyneside-founded Executive Care is led by David Harrison, who joined the 30 year-old firm in August 2012.

He leads a senior management team, which this year has seen the appointment of chief operating officer Brian Murphy, who has worked in public and private sector health and social care organisations for several decades.

The executive board is completed with Michelle Woodward, who recently joined as interim chief financial officer.

Julie Rayner has also recently joined as Executive Care as director of governance, quality and compliance. She is a registered nurse with extensive experience in both the delivery and regulation of health and social care.

Executive chairman Simon Harrison, said: “Executive Care is in the process of completing a review of the business to ensure we provide the best, highly focussed care provision across all our homes. This will incorporate a new focus on dementia care and high end nursing and elderly care.

“The ensuing changes in systems and staffing are throwing up some challenges but we are determined to establish sustainable structures that will help support our staff and homes to provide an exceptional level of care to our residents who put their trust in us.

“With our newly strengthened management team, we are now in a position to finalise strategic plans and embed a new way of working across the group. This is an exciting time for Executive Care and one that will see us investing heavily in homes along with our people and systems.”
