A special recruitment event arranged by West Sussex County Council is taking place in Chichester to encourage more people to think about working in care and the potential career opportunities.
People will have the opportunity to meet care providers, find out about the roles available and even apply for jobs.
Part of a vital ongoing campaign to recruit more care workers across West Sussex, the event will take place on Tuesday 17 July from 2pm – 4.30pm at Chichester Park Hotel, Madgwick Lane, Westhampnett Road, Chichester, PO19 7QL.
Amanda Jupp, West Sussex County Council’s Cabinet Member for Adults and Health, said: “Working in care can offer an incredibly rewarding career with so many opportunities to progress and make a real, positive difference to people’s lives. I would recommend anyone interested to come along to this event and find out about local opportunities and job vacancies.”
Terry Franks, who has spent nearly five years in the care sector following a 23 year career in the police force said: “I know that what I do makes a difference to people’s everyday lives. If you’re interested in a really worthwhile job I’d urge you to consider a career in care.”
