Recruitment Call to Join Staffordshires Army of Home Care Workers

Posted on Wednesday 8th September 2021
Social-Care-2

A call for more people to work in care in Staffordshire has gone out after Covid has left more people needing support and more staff required to provide it.

In the wake of the pandemic more people are needing extra support in their homes. At the same time, with the local economy reopening, care providers have seen an increase in turnover of staff. This has led to some people having to wait longer for less urgent care packages.

The county council is now working with care providers to support recruitment. 

Johnny McMahon, cabinet support member for public health on Staffordshire County Council, said:

“Our care providers were on the frontline during the pandemic. As we emerge from lockdown we have more people needing support in their homes and care providers are looking for more staff to provide it.”

“There has never been a better time to embark on a career in care. Covid has demonstrated just how important care workers are and they are increasingly recognised by the public for their vital role. We are truly fortunate to have a dedicated army of care workers here in Staffordshire, and we need more. If you are interested in joining them and are looking for truly rewarding work has never been a better time to apply."

Details of vacancies can be found at Nexxus or through the national portal.
