On 3 November, the government launched the Adult Social Care Recruitment Campaign, where people across the country will be encouraged to explore a rewarding career in the care sector.
The campaign follows the announcement of £5.4 billion of additional funding to reform social care over the next three years, including £500 million to support training and career development for the workforce.
A growing sector, there are expected to be 500,000 extra job opportunities in adult social care expected over the next fifteen years.
Westward Care’s Managing Director and Trustee for Leeds Care Association, Peter Hodkinson, said: “During the pandemic, so many of us were thankful for the dedication, compassion and resilience of those in the care profession. I would encourage anyone who was inspired to peruse that passion and join our growing sector. Not only does the care profession offer rewarding roles in personal care, but there are opportunities for those who want to explore careers in activities, outreach and administration. At Westward Care, we also ensure that our staff have plenty of opportunities to progress how they want to – as well as access continuous professional development.”
Westward Care are currently recruiting for a number of roles in care and non-care. To find out more, please visit Current Opportunities
