It is currently recruiting for a wide variety of roles, including Registered Nurses and Healthcare Assistants.

The jobs will be created across the company's 26 offices here.

Major recruitment drives will also take place in Galway, Wexford and Dublin in the coming weeks.

Tánaiste Frances Fitzgerald welcomed the announcement, stating: “I am delighted that Bluebird Care is expanding its workforce by creating 370 new roles. Indeed, I am especially pleased to see the creation of jobs across the country.

"We look after people with varying ranges of ability at home," he explained. "In the disabilities market, we provide complex care to children in the home."
