They're looking for general nurses, behavioural and occupational therapists and social care workers.

Assisted living services company Nua Healthcare is to create 470 jobs across the country this year.

The company, which was founded in 2004, is the largest private sector provider of intellectual disability and mental health services in Ireland and already employs 2000 people nationwide.

As part of expansion plans, they are looking for general nurses, behavioural and occupational therapists and social care workers.

In a statement this morning, the company said the roles would be spread across 19 counties with the majority of positions based in Kildare, Meath, Waterford, and Westmeath.

Some support roles will be open to those without previous healthcare experience.

Nua Healthcare has also introduced the opportunity for new starters to retrain for a healthcare role through a training programme to meet growing demand.

The expansion comes as Nua Healthcare reports ongoing growth and need for its services nationally.
