Glasgow City Council launches carer recruitment drive

A recruitment drive is being launched tomorrow (Tuesday 1 September) offering a range of employment opportunities across Glasgow’s social care sector.

Glasgow City Council, as part of the city’s Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP), is creating around 200 new posts to cover vital home care, residential care and day care responsibilities.

Councillor Mhairi Hunter, who serves on the Glasgow City Health and Social Care Integration Joint Board, said: “Throughout the Covid-19 crisis the valuable and important role of carers has been highlighted. I’m delighted we’re now in a position to recruit and train staff for these varied, front-line care roles and to offer jobs to people seeking employment.”

The multi-media recruitment campaign will also feature an advert on STV which will be screened for the first time tomorrow, Tuesday 1 September at 2.45pm, and throughout the next fortnight.

The aim is to augment current home care staff numbers and support dedicated home care employees who have been working relentlessly throughout the Covid-19 Pandemic assisting some of our most vulnerable citizens.

Attracting new staff will help build resilience across the home care sector and allow serving staff to take time off, as annual leave, as well as assist the city in meeting additional demand on this vital sector as winter approaches. .

It’s also a chance to offer a variety of rewarding employment opportunities to interested individuals seeking work.
