Manchester Adult Social Care Recruitment & Hiring Event
Friday 30th September 2022
9am to 1pm
The Legends Suite
Then come along to our Adult Social Care Recruitment & Hiring event on 30th September at the Etihad Stadium. It’s the first event of its kind for several years and the ideal opportunity for anyone thinking about a career in this area.
What is adult social care?
Adult social care describes all forms of personal care and other practical assistance for adults who need extra support.
You could be assisting adults who live in residential care homes, nursing homes, or supporting their living at home. Working in care is one of the most rewarding jobs there is and gives you skills that you can keep and develop a lifelong career with if you’re the right person.
Why work in adult social care?
As well as the personal reward of working and making a difference to people who need care, working in adult social care can build you a career. It can lead to roles in nursing, manager roles and social work. It’s the start of a career pathway.
What’s happening on the day?
This event is where it all starts. As well as employers looking to hire we have the people who can set you up on your career path. From apprenticeships to university – they are all there on the day.
Care homes and home care providers from across Manchester who are hiring will be there on the day and able to talk to you about the opportunities they have available for people looking for employment or a change in career. There’ll be representatives from North, Central and South Manchester to tell you what’s available near where you are based.
Many will even be interviewing on the day so if you’re ready you could walk out with a job offer.
Career advice and support
As well as providers actively recruiting new staff there will also be various partners supporting the event on the day. These include, careers advisors who can guide you around the options, training providers who can tell you about what courses are available, local colleges and more.
Step Into Care will also be present. This is a fully-funded 4-5 week training programme. The programme will give people with no experience of working in care the opportunity to learn the fundamental skills required. Once you have completed the programme, you will be offered a guaranteed interview in Manchester with one of our Adult Social Care Providers.
So the day is basically a one stop shop for everything you need for a career in adult social care and we’d love for you to join us on the day. The event is organised by Manchester Local Care Organisation which is a partnership of the NHS and Manchester City Council.
You can just come along on the day, but why not reserve a place at the event now for a timeslot that suits you.
