What is a WeCare Ambassador?
WeCare Ambassadors are people working in social care and early years. By sharing their passion for care, our WeCare Ambassadors champion the people working in our sector whilst encouraging others to consider a career in care.
Whether it’s inspiring school leavers to consider the possibilities of a career in care or attending job fairs to talk to people about a change of career, our WeCare Ambassadors are helping us to transform the future of care.
This can involve:
- Presentations to school or college students
- Informal talks or discussions
- Attending career or job fairs, events or conferences.
