WE ARE RECRUITING
HAS THIS AFFECTED YOUR INCOME?
HAS YOUR CURRENT JOB BEEN SUSPENDED DUE TO CLOSURE?
YOU CAN BANK ON AVERY FOR YOUR NEXT OPPORTUNITY!
Right now we are seeing people like you affected by the closure of workplaces and places of study. A concerning time for all, with the added worry of reduced or no income.
But good news is at hand! We are looking for staff to work in our award-winning teams on a Bank Contract basis, which means we can offer you employment now, whilst your current workplace or education establishment is closed.
In these unprecedented times, it’s important to remember the vulnerable members of society and the way that events like this pandemic can affect them. You’ll know about the vital part that the Care sector plays in supporting these individuals, so we’re looking for quality colleagues who genuinely want to give something back as we face these challenges together.
We have a wide range of care and non-care positions available:
- Nurses – we are willing to support retired nurses who wish to offer something back to society during this challenging time
- Care Workers – you don’t need experience as we will provide you with all the training you need to provide care to our residents
- Catering and housekeeping staff – again you don’t need experience as training will be provided
In addition to plenty of job satisfaction, Avery Healthcare will offer you:
– Flexible working hours to fit around you and your lifestyle
– Full, comprehensive training packages – no experience necessary!
– Competitive rates of pay
There will also be some permanent opportunities available, both part-time and full-time, which carry an additional range of employee benefits.
Remember – experience is not necessary, so if your heart’s in the right place and you’re looking for hours that suit you, or you know someone that is, we want to hear from you!

Thank you for your interest in working with Avery Healthcare. We receive a vast number of enquiries from recruitment agencies and we cannot possibly keep in touch with all of you, although we do appreciate the interest you have in working with us.
We are fortunate in that we are approached directly by many candidates, so it is rare for us to work with recruitment agencies, but when we do, we refer to our Preferred Supplier List (PSL). This list is reviewed periodically, however at this time we are happy with the agencies that we are currently partnered with, so we do not have any plans to review our PSL at this time.
Most importantly – please do not contact any Avery Healthcare colleagues directly. All recruitment queries and communication should be facilitated through our Recruitment Team via email@example.com, however please be aware that your communication may not be responded to promptly, due to the sheer volume of enquiries we receive on a daily basis. Additionally we are unable to take cold calls from agencies who are not on our PSL.
