Care Recruitment Events
Our programme of care recruitment events is currently on hold whilst social distancing measures are in place. We aim to start holding events across West Sussex as soon as it’s safe to do so. In the meantime we have introduced new ways of helping you find your perfect job in care.
The Proud to Care team now offer a personal online matching service where we match your skills, experience and availability with local vacancies in care. We can give you guidance about working in care and answer your questions – get in touch here
You can also register your details with a new Government service where your profile will be displayed to regulated care providers and you can access online training. Register here
Throughout the year we run a series of targeted campaigns and events designed to encourage more people to consider and apply for local jobs in care.
Events take place in the heart of our local communities and are designed to appeal and attract as many people as possible. We invite local providers to attend these recruitment events so this is a great chance for prospective employees and employers to meet and discuss career opportunities within the care sector.
Our events are a great opportunity to meet with local care providers to learn more about your career in care. But don’t take our word for it, read all about Ian’s experience after attending a local Proud to Care recruitment event:
My Name is Ian , and I work in a local care home. I received a leaflet through my door promoting the Proud to Care recruitment event in Littlehampton earlier this year.
I attended this event and came across Princess Marina House stand, I had heard about Princess Marina House whilst looking on the internet on CQC website.
Corinna explained how care is promoted within the house, the activities that are provided also the progression available for my career path. I was very interested in joining the team and asked Corinna if I could come and look around the home.
I have now been working at Princess Marina House for 6 weeks and I’m thoroughly enjoying my time here so far, I feel that I have a good rapport with all the guests and have had many comments ‘how it’s nice to have a male carer working, as I have heard from the care staff that have worked at PMH for several years, that not many males have applied for care positions.
I think without that leaflet through my door and me attending the Littlehampton Recruitment Event, I would not have had the opportunity to work at Princess Marina House.
