Bolton Council and local care providers are working with the North West Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (NW ADASS) to recruit more people into care jobs.

Step into social careNW ADASS are leading on the Step Into Social Care campaign working with a consortium of 23 Local Authorities to promote social care as a career, including Bolton Council who are championing this locally to address the general shortages of care workers.

Working in social care can be extremely rewarding and makes a significant difference to people’s lives and there are vacancies across Bolton and the north-west as support workers, care workers and team leaders, offering flexible working, stable jobs and attractive renumeration packages and benefits.

Using the Government’s Workforce Recruitment and Retention grant, Bolton are looking to help local care providers to recruit more people into social care and boosting the NW ADASS campaign is just one of the initiatives being planned in Bolton for coming weeks and beyond.

Cllr Andy Morgan, Bolton Council’s Executive Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, said:

“Social care workers are truly valued and are doing a magnificent job in our local communities and we need lots more of these care heroes.

“I would encourage anyone who is looking for a rewarding career to become a social care worker, join our Bolton team of heroes and help make a real difference to people’s lives.”

People interested can register online detailing their working preferences enabling prospective local care organisations to contact them if they match their requirements.

The Step Into Social Care campaign continues into the New Year and people can apply online at
