16 employers and 256 jobseekers attended our first Social Care Jobs Fair, which showcased around a hundred jobs in the social care sector on Thursday August 8 between at Wallsend Customer First Centre.
There were a wide range of vacancies available in residential care, supported living, home care and day services. There were also opportunities for job seekers to become a Shared Lives Carer or Personal Assistant. Full and part-time positions, as well as apprenticeships were available.
The event was arranged in partnership with Skills for Care and Jobcentre Plus, who ran workshops with job seekers in advance to prepare them for the event.
