Consider a career in local care

A recruitment campaign has been launched to encourage more people to consider a career in social care in Denbighshire.

Over recent times, the Council has seen an increase in the number of social care vacancies, especially during Covid when demand for social care increased.

Now a campaign called Gwnewch i bobl wenu/ Make people smile has been launched to raise the profile of careers in social care and to advertise the current vacancies that exist in the county.

This campaign will include a mix of advertising on public transport, banners in community locations, adverts in the local media, social media activity and branding on some of the Council’s vehicles. The Council will also be out and about in locations hosting recruitment roadshows and workshops.

The Council has also revamped its information on the Council’s website and has included case studies as videos, in an attempt to encourage more people into the profession. A frequently asked questions section has also been provided to provide answers to some of the most regular questions received.

Nicola Stubbins, Corporate Director – Communities, said: “This campaign is very much about selling the benefits of working for the Council and for starting a career in social care.

“Working in social care and making a real difference every day is a true privilege and our teams do make people smile every single day. It’s in their DNA to want to help people live as independently as possible, but having the care and support they need in a variety of settings.

“Qualifications are not always needed and there are plenty of opportunities to learn new skills and complete qualifications through the workplace.  The Council has put in place a programme of support for all employees and there are significant benefits to working for the Council. They include family friendly policies and a flexible approach to shift patterns.

“What’s needed more than anything is the ability to make people smile, to have empathy and to have a caring nature. The rest will fall into place”.
