It has been widely documented that Wales will need around 20,000 more care sector workers by 2030.
With people living longer and choosing to receive care in their own homes, our biggest area of need for care and support workers in Gwent is in Adult Social Care.
In light of this, the Gwent Regional Partnership and Torfaen Employability teams are jointly hosting a care recruitment event on the 23rd October 2019 at the Congress Theatre in Cwmbran, doors open at 10am.
It is hoped that the event will help to raise the profile of social care, bust some of the well-worn myths of working in the sector and inspire people to become compassionate care and support workers.
There are loads of opportunities in Gwent for people to start a career in social care and on the day there will be over 20 local care providers present, all looking to fill live vacancies.
There will be opportunities for individuals to discuss employment support to help them join the sector, as well as volunteering opportunities and information about local college courses.
Gwent’s social care sector can offer both flexible roles that fit around family or study commitments as well as roles that can lead to fulfilling, diverse and rewarding careers.
Qualifications can be achieved while you earn and with 65 different roles available in the adult care sector no matter what your background there is likely to be something for you.
Executive Member for Adult Services & Housing, Councillor David Daniels said, "Health and social care is all about building meaningful relationships and making a positive differences in people’s lives. I would urge all those thinking about joining the care sector to come along on the 23rd of October and see how you can join this compassionate and creative workforce and become a real superhero."
