Care Sourcer health tech firm to create 70 new jobs after £1.5m grant

After securing £1.5m in funding from Scottish Enterprise, healthcare tech company Care Sourcer is due to create 70 new jobs.

The Edinburgh-based company has previously raised £8.5 million from Legal & General and ADV to help the company develop technology “to tackle the UK’s care crisis”.

This new £1.5m will allow the company to increase its staff numbers to over 100.

The company uses a technology platform which matches care seekers with care providers and currently works with a number of NHS Trusts across the UK.

Andrew Parfery, Co-founder and chief executive officer, said: “As we look to further scale the business in the months and years ahead, the support from Scottish Enterprise will enable us to grow the team to keep apace with our strategic growth plans. We are building a fantastic team at Care Sourcer and we’re excited at the prospect of even more talented people joining the fold as we look to fix the broken care system in this country.”

He added: “Care Sourcer’s online comparison and matching site is directly connecting people with businesses who can help. Our technology is proven to make a significant impact on the challenges in social care, and we look forward to more attention and investment in this critical topic.”

The Scottish Government’s investment minister Ivan McKee welcomed the funding.

Mr McKee said: “A vibrant and successful Scottish economy depends on companies like Care Sourcer. The £1.5m award from Scottish Enterprise will create over 70 new high-value jobs, generating real economic impact for Scotland. I look forward to hearing more good news from the Care Sourcer team as they pursue their growth ambitions.”
