Expansion plans for care group

A company which provides care services for people in Shropshire has announced plans to expand its operation.

Sentinel Care Services is based in Telford and provides care to people within their own homes - and is now expanding into north Shropshire.

Managers at Sentinel say they are currently looking to recruit a new trainee supervisor who will go through a fast-track training programme with the aim of running the new operation.

The company is currently looking at Market Drayton, Whitchurch and Wem as specific areas for expansion.

Steve Harris, Sentinel’s managing director (pictured), said “It’s a really exciting opportunity to learn from senior director level management which the right person could make their own and join Sentinel as a member of a leading care provider breaking into new areas.

“This is a 12-month training programme after which the successful applicant will be instrumental in setting up and running a second office based in north Shropshire or the Cannock area.

“Sentinel’s top priority is providing the best possible care to our customers and we have an excellent in-house training programme to ensure our staff are able to do so.

“This year-long process to introduce and train the right person in coordination, recruitment and quality systems while gaining qualifications in leadership and management seldom comes around.

“Whoever we take on will get support in the role until they are comfortable, and will then become responsible for that area.

“The opportunity is for a person who can demonstrate the commitment and values that when coupled with the training and experiences gained will ultimately enable us to provide a continued high level of care to more people who need it in our community.”
