Acorn Healthcare are moving to the Park to support their growing client base in Plymouth, North Devon and East Cornwall.

Acorn Healthcare specialise in providing tailored recruitment solutions for a range of healthcare clients in the private and public spheres, including care homes, nurseries, charities and community support organisations.

Having been established only two months ago in early 2021, Acorn Healthcare has become a regular recruiter with up to forty healthcare professionals on its books at a time. 

Ian Booy, Founder of Acorn Healthcare, said: “We are hugely excited about relocating our operations to Plymouth Science Park and continuing our expansion from there. The Park is an incredible environment to work in, with a strong ecosystem of health and science companies already based there. The facilities are excellent and we have a large, modern office space that is all set up to accommodate a dynamic, rapidly expanding team. We look forward to bringing specialist recruitment solutions to healthcare organisations in the area and supporting local health workers to find roles that truly make a difference.”

The healthcare sector is one of the region’s fastest-growing employers, accounting for around 17,000 jobs in the city (equivalent to around 16% of all jobs)  and a Gross Value Added of £582m. .

The arrival of Acorn Healthcare at Plymouth Science Park, and the organisation’s prospects for growth, bode well for the regional economy and the post-Covid bounceback.

Fay Davies, Business Development Manager at Plymouth Science Park, said: “We are proud of the progressive ecosystem of health and tech companies at the Park, and it is great to be welcoming Acorn Healthcare and to be supporting the company’s continued growth. We look forward to seeing Acorn Healthcare’s contribution to the Park’s collaborative culture.”
