Find that job where you can make a difference every day and discover your career in adult social care

In the last year the vital role of adult social care workers has been highlighted across the country, and those people providing this essential care to others have been recognised and appreciated for what they do.

There's a lot more to working in adult social care than people think. It's rewarding and worthwhile, with many opportunities to really make a big difference in the lives of others every day. Working with people of all ages and abilities means that no two days are the same and this makes it both challenging and meaningful.

NHS North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and North East Lincolnshire Council are working together with local care providers and the Job Centre to hold the first of a series of adult social care recruitment fairs in the area.

The recruitment event will take place on Wednesday 8th December at Centre4 in Grimsby. It will showcase the many different opportunities for local people, depending on their individual interests and skills and provide guidance on how to apply to either start, or develop a career in the care sector.

A selection of representatives from local care and residential homes in North East Lincolnshire, Support At Home providers and the Care Plus Group will be available at Centre 4 from 10 am – 2pm, to chat to people about potential careers in care and also current vacancies. 

Displays from care organisations will provide information on what it’s like to work as a care worker. It's so much more than a job - it's a vocation and careers in social care, offer a wealth of training and development opportunities, whether you are new to the sector or have some experience.

Advisors from the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), will also be on hand to discuss any issues and answer any questions on employment and benefits, in a private and confidential room.

Anyone who is interested and would like to get involved and find out more about a career in care, should come along to find out more.

Bev Compton, Head of Adult Services, explained, “Our care workers do the most amazing work, which is rewarding for themselves and for those they care for. People may not realise that they have the skills and attributes that are ideal for caring for others and this event will be the opportunity to see just what the sector has to offer.

“Adult social care workers across the area are rising to the challenges and are continuing to look after the most vulnerable people in the community. They are responding to the needs of others and doing an incredible job providing high quality care and much needed social contact for people. It’s a wonderful thing to be part of.”

Kelly Barber, Team Co-ordinator for NavigoExtra, said, “Working in adult social care was one of my first jobs, and I have no doubt I will still be in this industry until the day I retire. I get to celebrate the good days with the people we support, and I get to be there to get them through the bad days. It’s not an easy job, and some days we wonder if it’s all worth it, but deep down, we know it is. I can’t imagine doing anything else.”

Esme, Care Hero at Hales Home Care, said, “This job has changed my perspective on everything. I never thought I would work in care, but it is the best job I have ever worked in. You'll never know unless you try it.”
