Darlington-based care provider HC-One has announced the creation of 130 new jobs in its Darlington Support Office following its recent agreement to acquire 122 Bupa care homes.

These new jobs will cover a variety of support roles, at a range of levels.

HC-One, which was founded in 2011, aims to be the first choice care home provider within each of its communities for Residents, and the employer of choice for the best, and kindest care staff looking for sector-leading career progression opportunities.

The acquisition of the 122 Bupa care homes will see HC-One become the largest provider of care in the UK, further building on its sector-leading investment programme which includes its learning and development programmes, IT systems, and homes.

The new Darlington-based roles will be key in supporting the organisation in continuing to provide the kindest care as it reaches ever more communities and older people across the country.
