“We are currently recruiting for 110 jobs across a variety of roles including nursing and care staff, managerial positions, activities coordinators, administrative staff, kitchen staff and maintenance personnel.

“At Dunluce Healthcare, we offer a career with real opportunity for development and training, providing financial support while staff learn and actively encouraging ongoing growth and progress.

“We look forward to welcoming both new residents and staff members to our new care home.”

In addition to this latest development, Bangor-based firm Dunluce Healthcare currently operates residential and nursing care facilities at Oakmont Lodge (Bangor), Hillcrest Care Home (Omagh), Hillside Residential (Omagh), and Gortacharn Nursing Home (Lisnaskea).
