Nigel Wright Recruitment has been chosen as the recruitment partner by care provider, HC-One, who are creating 130 jobs at its Darlington head-quarters following its recent acquisition of 122 Bupa care homes.
These new jobs will cover a variety of support roles, at a range of levels, across IT, HR, marketing and hospitality, sales, finance, procurement and operations. The acquisition of the 122 Bupa care homes will see HC-One become the largest provider of care in the UK, further boosting HC-One’s position as a leading employer in Darlington. HC-One will be investing in developing its current site in Darlington to accommodate this expansion.
David Smith, HC-One’s CFO, said: “We are delighted to announce the creation of these 130 new jobs in Darlington, re-enforcing our commitment to the area and to expanding our position as an employer in the local economy at such an exciting time for HC-One.

We are proud to provide an array of sector-leading career opportunities and support, and continually invest in our colleagues’ training and development.
