Care Solutions Group was named Employer of the Year for its successes in a very difficult sector.

The St Neots firm, which was recognised for its training and development scheme in last year’s awards, provides carers across the country supporting them right from recruitment.

Sarah Stephenson, managing director, said: “We are over the moon. This award is really for the people who provide the service. We take people on who make sure they provide the best service and we support them in doing that by the training we give our staff.”

Lynne Johnson, HR director, added: “It is a great opportunity to invest in the people of Huntingdonshire by providing the training and employment to offer a really local service. We are building the heroes who look after the most vulnerable people in society.”

The judges said: “Care Solutions Group operates within a very difficult sector, which has a reputation for low pay and long hours.

“However, Care Solutions buck this reputation, operating in such a way to ensure that they do their very best for their employees.
