Orchard Care Homes: Richard Wormwell
Orchard Care Homes, which provides care homes in the North of England and the Midlands, has appointed Richard Wormwell as head of recruitment, to lead the company’s talent and acquisition programme across its 23 homes, based at Orchard’s headquarters in Harrogate.
Wormwell has experience of the talent and acquisition arena across the healthcare sector, heading recruitment divisions within specialist eating disorder services, mental health and acute NHS providers.
Wormwell said: “Attracting dedicated, passionate staff to deliver first-rate care within our homes is at the heart of our business, especially as occupancy rates and the demand for residential care continues to rise throughout the UK.
“Our investment into quality training, upskilling and staff development towards nationally recognised qualifications, is a huge priority for Orchard Care Homes. Our focus on harnessing skills, career progression and providing opportunities for growth is integral to our staff retention rates, as well as the added benefit of a supportive network and over a decades’ experience in care.”
