More than 50 employers have signed up to a new scheme to help more people get work in social care.
Book onto our next Guaranteed Interview webinar.
The scheme, which is run by WeCare Wales, will help anyone who’s completed the Introduction to Social Care programme get an interview, making it easier for them to get a job in social care.
The scheme is a partnership with social care employers across Wales and helps both people looking for jobs and employers.
It speeds up the hiring process, so people can get into work more quickly and gives them the advantage over other people applying for the same jobs.
It also helps employers find the right people for the right jobs, and means they can choose people who are really interested in social care work.
How it works
When people complete the Introduction to social care programme, they’re paired with a WeCare Wales work coach.
The coach will run regular work ready workshops to help candidates sharpen their CV, application forms and interview skills, so they’re ready to take their first steps in a social care career.
Participants can also work with their coach to identify further training, identify suitable roles, or pathways into social care, as well as use the guaranteed interview list to help match employers and participants into suitable interview opportunities in their area.
“An excellent scheme”
The scheme launched in July after a successful pilot with Newport-based Pobl Group, a non-profit housing, care and support provider. Pobl has already placed three people through the guaranteed interview scheme.
Richard Barnes, Head of Talent Attraction at Pobl, said:
“It’s an excellent scheme that gives a strong induction to the sector. The people we’ve hired so far have excellent attitudes, good understanding of their new roles and have bright futures ahead of them.”
