Hundreds of jobs on offer at upcoming Social Care Jobs Fairs

Hundreds of job vacancies will be promoted at two social care jobs fairs in Bridgend County Borough next week.

Supported by Employability Bridgend, the events in Porthcawl and the Ogmore Valley form part of Bridgend County Borough Council’s social care recruitment drive.

The first jobs fair takes place on Monday 29 November between 10am-1pm at Hi-Tide, Porthcawl followed by the second on Tuesday 30 November between 12pm-3pm at the Ogmore Valley Life Centre.

Each fair will have hundreds of jobs on offer as well as support and guidance for those interested in working in the social care sector. Enquiries from drivers and non-drivers are welcome.

Members of the local authority’s recruitment team, fostering team, support at home care staff, Employability Bridgend and a variety of independent care providers will be available to answer any questions.

Cllr Nicole Burnett, Cabinet Member for Social Service and Early Help, said: “Events such as these are fantastic opportunities for people to meet multiple employers on the same day, find out everything they need to know about working in the sector, and apply directly for a variety of roles.

“We really need more people to consider the many benefits of working in social care. It is a job for life, there is full training and support and, if you are a people person, you will get great satisfaction from helping people to live the lives that matter to them.

“Carers are vital to individuals, families and communities and I would like to thank all our care workers for the amazing work they do.”                                                                           

Booking is not required for these events.
