Recruitment campaign - free webinars
The next phase of the Department of Health and Social Care’s national recruitment campaign has been launched. It aims to drive a new generation of people to consider and apply for a job in adult social care.
The campaign can raise awareness and drive interest to your organisation, but it's vitally important that your team takes action too. During the first phase of the campaign, one in four care staff surveyed saw an increase in either enquiries, applications, interviews or vacancies filled.
Over the next two months they will be sharing practical advice and guidance to help you think about how your recruitment processes can effectively convert a new pool of interested people into recruits.
Don’t forget to follow the campaign on social media #CareToRecruit. We will also keep you up to date with future campaign resources.
To support the next phase of the Department of Health and Social Care’s (DHSC) national recruitment campaign, Skills for Care is running free to attend webinars to help adult social care employers to recruit the right people. These webinars aim to help you maximise opportunities created by the campaign, to turn interested people into recruits. Book your place now!
