New support jobs at Ruthin Extra Care Housing development

As the first stage of the redevelopment of Ruthin extra care housing scheme Llys Awelon nears completion, the recruitment drive has begun for staff.

In a partnership between Grŵp Cynefin and Denbighshire County Council, the redevelopment of the site involves building a brand-new block, adding 25 self-contained apartments to the current 21 units.

As the scheme expands, so will the care team, with Denbighshire County Council now recruiting day and night care and support staff.

An event planned on 19 June at Hafan Deg, Grange Road, Rhyl, will offer the opportunity for anyone interested in these jobs, as well as other care and support jobs in Denbighshire to attend workshops as well as hear about the latest jobs available and how to apply for them.

Grŵp Cynefin will also be recruiting staff for Llys Awelon soon and the job adverts will be on the Grŵp Cynefin website and social media.

Ann Lloyd, Head of Adult Social Care and Homelessness, Denbighshire County Council, said:

“The progress made in Llys Awelon means that there is a great opportunity for people to join our fantastic care team.

The Council are now looking to recruit day and night care and support staff. I would urge anyone who has an interest in the field to come along and find out more.”

Noela Jones, Head of Neighbourhoods, Grŵp Cynefin said:

“We pride ourselves on the standard of accommodation and care offered at our extra care housing schemes. They are caring and welcoming communities for older people, and excellent staff is crucial to this. The partnership approach we have with Denbighshire at our extra care housing schemes means that we are able to provide an adaptable and flexible level of care and support to suit an individual’s needs.

We therefore need caring individuals who will make a real contribution and become an integral part of the unique community at Llys Awelon. They will compliment Grŵp Cynefin’s excellent team on site, led by Scheme Manager Gwawr Lewis.”
