Fast growing Alcedo Care Group, with offices across Lancashire, has invested £100,000 in the development of a purpose-built corporate vehicle to support its ambitious expansion plans and achieve its target of recruiting more than 1,000 new care professionals by the end of this year.

Purchase of the low wheelbase exhibition-style vehicle underlines Alcedo’s commitment to an unprecedented recruitment drive and enables the company to take its brand ‘on the road’ reaching potential new employees in the North West and beyond.

The first of its kind in the care industry, the vehicle has been designed and fully fitted to a bespoke specification featuring an office-style meeting room, wall-mounted television screen and a reception area with welcome refreshments.

Group head of recruitment for Alcedo Care, John Townley, said: “The new vehicle will really support our focus on recruitment ensuring we stand apart from others in the industry. As we continue to grow and expand, we need to recruit the right people with shared values and standards who may be looking for a new and exciting career in care.

“Having our own purpose-built portable office will enable us to get out into local communities and really engage with people, communicating the exceptional range of care services that we provide and our commitment to continued professional development and career opportunities for the right people. We will also be able to interview and process applications for the right people who step on board.”

A full time events manager, Adam Garvey, has already been appointed to manage the day-to-day logistics of the vehicle and coordinate its activities across the region starting with a visit to each of Alcedo’s 13 offices and attendance at large organised events this summer including the Southport Flower Show in August and annual Blackpool illuminations switch on in September.

Collaborations and partnerships will also be developed with schools, colleges and universities, large supermarkets and leisure attractions, local job centres, return to work providers and charitable or not-for-profit organisations.

“With significant expansion our goal over the next three years, we need to grow our team by at least 1,000 individuals annually which equals to approximately 10 people per office per month. Those looking for a fulfilling new career in care should keep an eye out for our vehicle as it will be coming to an event or town centre near them in the very near future.”

For up-to-date details of the recruitment vehicle’s schedule of appearances across the region, please visit the Alcedo Care Group social media channels.
