SOCIAL CARE STILL OPEN FOR BUSINESS

JOB OPPORTUNITIES AND TRAINING AVAILABLE

SOCIAL CARE STILL OPEN FOR BUSINESS

Leeds City Council has launched a recruitment drive to ensure care providers can better support vulnerable residents during the Coronavirus pandemic.

 

In the coming weeks and months, social care providers will play a crucial role in keeping the city going and protecting our most vulnerable residents. As the demand on these services goes up, the council is working with providers across the city to safely and quickly recruit hundreds of part-time, full-time, temporary and permanent care workers.

 

A variety of roles are available in a range of different settings including at home care, supported living care and residential care. They are suited to people who care about the quality of life and welfare of other people. The jobs require a caring and nurturing personality, empathy and patience. Full training will be provided, so previous experience isn’t necessary.

 

People whose jobs have been affected by the pandemic are particularly encouraged to apply.

 

The council is working quickly to ensure people can be fully trained and in their roles within two weeks. An assessment centre is set to be held next Thursday and Friday (26th and 27th March) in Merrion House, Leeds City Centre, with training taking place the following week.

 

Anyone interested in applying or wanting to find out more information should contact We Care Academy at wecareacademy@leeds.gov.uk.
