The Government’s ‘Infection Control Fund’ (introduced as a result of the Coronavirus) requires Care homes to restrict permanent and temporary staff to working in only one care home, to help reduce the spread of the Coronavirus.   As a result of this, if you already have another job elsewhere (either in Care or another sector) and you wish to continue working there alongside the Trust, unfortunately we would not be able to progress with your application at this time. Once the restrictions are lifted, please do not hesitate to re-apply for any of our roles that maybe of interest to you then.
