Glasgow’s largest homecare provider, Cordia Services LLP, is undertaking one of its biggest recruitment drives as it seeks to boost its workforce by 300 employees, due to demand created by the demographic pressures of an aging population as well as the creation of a new supported living initiative which will be implemented in the city over the next six months.

Cordia delivers 95,000 visits a week to 6,300 individuals. The company was created by Glasgow City Council in 2009to take over the work of the former Direct and Care Services (DACS) department.The organisation, the largest of the Council’s arm’s length external organisations (ALEO), has a current staff of almost 7,300.
