Who We Are

Hello, welcome to Proud to Care West Sussex. We’re here to help local people find rewarding jobs in adult social care and to support care employers across West Sussex with their recruitment needs.

Proud to Care was set up in February 2019 by West Sussex County Council. We’re a small, dedicated and friendly team with vast experience of the care sector and we really know what it takes to be a fantastic care worker.

Our aim is to spread the word about the benefits of working in adult social care and dispel some of the myths about care work. Care work is one of the most fulfilling jobs and offers fantastic career opportunities.

We work closely with care employers across the county, advertising their jobs on our website and offering guidance and support about all aspects of adult social care recruitment.
