OUR COMPANY                                                                                                                                                                

Through a combination of acquisitive and organic growth we now have over five hundred employees at seven locations across the UK and Ireland. We’ve also become a subsidiary of DCC Healthcare Group – and there is even more growth ahead. Populations are ageing. Health budgets have to stretch further. Healthcare providers are looking for quality products at lower prices. They want to outsource activities deemed to be non-core. Fannin, as a subsidiary of DCC Healthcare, is working to meet this growing demand – now and into the future.

We want the brightest and the best to join us on this journey. We value our people. With attractive packages, big investments in staff training and development, mentoring programs and a commitment to simply making life in the workplace both productive and pleasant, you’ll find that we have a lot to offer. We hope that you too find a brilliant future at Fannin.
