As Covid-19 prompts more workers to self isolate, Gloucestershire County Council is launching a fast track recruitment programme to recruit care workers who are crucial in keeping our county’s most vulnerable people safe.
Gloucestershire County Council, as part of its Proud to Care offering, has developed a fast track recruitment programme to help care providers fill a number of flexible, temporary and permanent paid roles, which means successful applicants could be making a difference to someone’s life in a matter of days.
The adult social care sector already faces a shortage of staff and it is estimated that 15 percent of the workforce are currently not able to support frontline service delivery because of self-isolation measures.
Working in social care is incredibly varied, challenging and rewarding, where every day is different and most people don’t realise that the skills they’ve developed and values they hold, can be transferred to a successful career in care.
The council is encouraging everyone who wants to make a difference, to talk to the team about opportunities in care.

Interviews will take place by telephone and online.
Kathy Williams, cabinet member for adult social care at Gloucestershire County Council said: “More than ever before, we need people to help support our county’s most vulnerable. We are looking for individuals who want to be part of the incredible work being done to support vulnerable adults across the county during this incredibly challenging time.
“I know from personal experience as a nurse just how rewarding it is to support people and I would encourage people to apply. You don’t need to have previous experience, just a natural flair for helping people, as full training will be provided.”
