Home Instead Hiring Week creates 1000 opportunities to build a career in care


Home Instead, Ireland’s largest private provider of home care services launches Home Instead Hiring Week - 15th – 19th August with 1000 professional CAREGiver opportunities available nationwide.

Throughout the current health and economic challenges, one sector remains in high demand: home care.  With more of the vulnerable and ageing population seeking support, Home Instead is launching Home Instead Hiring Week: Monday 15th - Friday 19th August, a national campaign of events that aims to hire 1000 professional CAREGivers to join its 4000-strong team nationwide.

Professionally trained CAREGivers play an integral role in the healthcare system and are critical in keeping vulnerable and ageing people safe and healthy at home. New CAREGivers are provided training through Home Instead’s Home Care Professionals Academy, using state-of-the-art content and practical training on quality systems and standards.

Home is the preferred option for vulnerable and ageing people and their families, providing comfort, independence and familiarity, leading to better health outcomes impacting quality of life. Home Instead CAREGivers protect more people from the risks of isolation that can result in increased loneliness and malnutrition.  They also help older people manage their conditions reducing hospital admissions and readmissions.   

Recruitment and hiring events will take place Monday 15th – Friday 19th August at the following locations:
