Oak Manor, in Ivel Road, is almost complete and due to open this autumn – and it will provide 64 places for residential and dementia care.

Care professional Liz Parker has been appointed by national care charity MHA to manage the home, and she’s on the hunt for people to join her team.

She said: “We can’t wait to appoint some passionate individuals to help us ensure Oak Manor is an outstanding care home for our lovely new residents and the Shefford community more widely.

“There are a variety of roles available – from positions for experienced individuals who have years under their belt, to roles for those who have always considered a profession in care and would love the opportunity to be supported and trained through a career change.

“All departments are hiring including maintenance, admin management and hospitality and we also need a head chef. If you’re great with people and have good communication skills, get in touch.”

The new care home has been built by developers Castleoak.
