Portland group to create 200+ jobs

Posted on January 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

One of the North East¹s biggest independent providers of care for elderly people has unveiled a rapid expansion plan which will see more than 200 jobs created. The Portland Group, which has care homes throughout the North East, is seeking to not only increase the number of properties providing health care, but to also diversify into financial services for its staff, education, counselling and nutritional advice. The next five years will see the company increase in terms of property and employees. It is anticipated that the level of employees will increase from the current level of 440 to 650 and that the number of properties will more than double from 12 to 30. The Group, based in Willington near Durham City and led by Alison Morgan, has also appointed John Carling as chief executive. Mr Carling, 37, has spent more than 20 years working within North East financial organisations including Yorkshire Bank and Rowlands Accountants and Portland says he is one of the region¹s most respected financial consultants.
