Department of Health and Social Care's national recruitment campaign workshop
With a turnover rate of 30% and over 110,000 vacancies at any one time, there is no doubt that we need to attract more people into adult social care. By 2035 Skills for Care estimates that we’ll need another 650,000 people by 2035. To help achieve this, the Department of Health and Social Care have piloted a recruitment campaign to help raise the profile of the sector and pending results will aim to run this nationally in early 2019. This campaign will talk about what it means to work in adult social care and to encourage people from all walks of life who have the right values, to consider a career in social care.
Working in adult social care is rewarding, unique and makes a difference every single day which is why we invite you to get involved with the campaign and join us at this event.
You will find out:
- what the campaign is and what the learning has been from the pilot activity
- what you, as an employer, can get out of it to help you with your recruitment challenges
- about a recruitment campaign toolkit which is being developed and includes campaign materials and templates
- how to use the campaign materials to help you develop sustainable local campaigns to promote jobs.
The event is being hosted on behalf of the Department of Health and Social Care and attendance is fully funded. Lunch will be provided. Please note that the workshop is directed at adult social care employers, if you do not meet this requirement, please contact us to discuss.
*Exact timings have not been finalised, we will update you when they are confirmed. Please note that the same information will be disseminated at each session, you will only be required to attend either the morning or the afternoon session.
