Care Recruitment Roadshow

Bluebird Care Worcester & Wychavon are promoting a Care Recruitment Roadshow at four different locations in Worcestershire.
Social Care recruitment represents a significant national challenge, especially as we come out of the COVID lockdown. It is estimated that the UK population aged 80 years and above will double from present numbers over the next decade. Meeting this challenge will require us to attract more workers to the sector; however Skills for Care, the strategic body for workforce development in adult social care in England, estimated that approximately 440,000 people left the sector in 2019, and that at any one time there were 120,000 vacancies nationwide.
This gap represents a significant opportunity for people seeking to secure long term employment, or those looking to retrain to acquire skills that will be in high demand in years to come. Bluebird Care Worcester & Wychavon, is running a recruitment roadshow across Worcestershire to provide opportunities for people to find out about the rewards of working in Care.

Thursday 25th November (9.30am to 12 noon)

Pershore, St Andrews Centre, High Street, Pershore WR10 1DW Tuesday 30th November (2.30pm to 5pm)
Worcester, Warndon Hub Hall, Shap Drive, Worcester WR4 9NX. Tuesday 7th December (9.30am to 12noon)
Attendees will be given the opportunity to ask questions about working in the Care sector, about the Company itself, and how they might be able to meet their specific employment needs.
The current job market is very challenging with the end of furlough, rising cost of living and redundancies created by the COVID.
Working in Care is such a rewarding profession which enables people to make a significant contribution to their local community. Our roadshow will open a window to the opportunities for people who may be thinking about new career changes, coming back into the workforce or trying to find a role which fits with their own home and work life.
