Nua Healthcare Services is to create a further 300 jobs to bring its headcount to more than 2,100 people.
The company, a provider of intellectual disability and mental health services, said the new roles were being created due to ongoing growth. The roles consist of care support positions and are available at operations nationwide.
Nua said it hoped the roles would attract people who have previously never worked in the healthcare sector.
"We are especially looking for people who may want to change their current career path and who believe they have compatible skills born out of relevant life experience which will ultimately enable them to be successful in healthcare services," said Nua's chief operating officer Shane Kenny.
“The fact we provide residential, supported living, day and community outreach services to both children and adults with a range of complex support requirements requires great patience and empathy and is very rewarding work,” he said.
“We are proud to offer high standards of service and care, and are renowned for offering some of the best facilities in the country. Our residential accommodation combines modern facilities with beautiful outdoor environments and our tailored day care programmes encompass a wide variety of stimulating and enjoyable activities.”
