WeCare Wales Jobs Portal
The WeCare Wales Jobs Portal is a free on-line resource advertising all jobs in care. Jobseekers can search for care vacancies in their area.
A Question of Care
Jobseekers are encouraged to try the ‘A Question of Care: a Career for YOU’ quiz. This is a values-based on-line learning resource where people can experience what it’s like working in care. Once two of the challenges have been completed, a personalised report is produced on how well the individuals values are suited to working in care.
Why not use this resource as part of a values-based recruitment exercise?
