Tempcare Personnel, the Bradford-based agency that provides nurses, care and support workers for hospitals and care homes across the UK, is to relocate its headquarters in the city to newly acquired offices on Teasdale Street, off Wakefield Road, two miles south of the city centre.
Property consultancy Eddisons sold the former BHT nursery and childcare site to the firm, which plans to redevelop the property to create offices as a base for its growing management team, as well as a state-of-the-art training centre for clinical and care workers.
Tempcare director Aaron Munaiwa said: “The new site will be ideal for us and we’re looking forward to moving across early in 2024, once the redevelopment works are completed.
“As well as our core team of office-based staff, which is currently 10 people, with new hires planned for next year, we are incorporating a skills and training centre in the building, which will be used to train nursing and care staff working for Tempcare as well as for other healthcare agencies in the region.
“Demand is escalating for well-qualified, experienced nursing and care staff and our new facility will help us ensure more rigorously-trained and skilled workers are available to fill that need across the country’s care homes and healthcare sector. We are always on the lookout for new talent and currently have around 150 staff working for us.”
The move to its new offices will see Tempcare, which also has offices in Wolverhampton, relocate from its current rented premises at Bradford Chamber Business Park to the new two-storey headquarters in a £350,000 investment for the firm.
Eddisons associate director Matt Jennings added: “We’re really pleased to have sold the Teasdale Street property to Tempcare.
“It is always rewarding to be able to help a successful Bradford business achieve further growth, generating new jobs in the city and helping to solve staffing shortfalls in the vitally important care and healthcare sectors.”
Eddisons has sold the former nursery and childcare building on behalf of the childcare and early years education charity BHP Early Education and Training, which was founded in Bradford in 2003.
