Children and Adults Social Care Directorate Open Door Recruitment Day -Friday 20 September 2019

As part of the Children & Adults Social Care Directorate’s ‘CARE’: Caring And Respecting Everyone Campaign, an open-door recruitment event will be held at the Princess Royal Community Care Centre (CCC) on Friday, 20 September 2019, from 11am-2.30pm.

This event will allow interested persons to talk with Directorate staff, learn more about working in Social Care, and explore a typical day in the life of a Carer and Support Worker. Interviews will take place on the same day.

Quality Assurance & Policy Lead, Gavin (Jack) Thomas, said:

“This is our third consecutive recruitment event in recent months. We take this opportunity of thanking everyone who has supported the CARE Campaign since its launch. We are also very encouraged by the numbers of people who have been appointed as a result of recent recruitment events; we wish them every success, along with established staff, in building and sustaining our vision for providing person-centred care and support.

 “Anyone who is empathetic towards people’s feelings, is passionate about making a difference, and willing to work as part of a team, should come along and find out more about current and future vacancies in Social Care.”

If you are unable to attend the open-door recruitment event but would like to make an appointment to discuss career opportunities in Social Care, please contact Lisa Thomas at Brick House on tel: (00 290) 22713.

The CARE Campaign aims to recruit local carers for the residential services, and for individuals requiring support in maintaining a degree of independence and quality of life both in sheltered services and in the community.
