Carewatch to work with Stoke Adult Social Care Employment and Skills
One of the UK’s leading providers of local home care, Carewatch has teamed up with the Stoke-on-Trent City Council’s Stoke Adult Social Care Employment and Skills (SASCES) team to ensure there are sufficient workers with the right skills to deliver social care to adults across the city. SASCES works in partnership with employers to provide advice, guidance and support to employers providing adult social care in the city. This includes training, mentoring and advice and guidance. Working closely with the city council’s JET team, they also support employers to fill their vacancies. Carewatch have been helping people to remain independent within the comfort of their own homes for nearly 20 years.
Tina Roche from Carewatch is excited about the programme: “To deliver quality homecare takes a special kind of person and we are proud to be working with SASCES to find those people across the city. Our reputation has been built on the people we support to provide that support, so if you have the spirit, passion and desire to put our customers at the heart of everything we do, then we hope you will come and see us onNovember 20, 21 and 22 to talk about what we offer and how you can make a make a real difference to the lives of the people we support. The seven events held over the three days will provide an overview of our business values and also the opportunity to be interviewed and assessed. When you book you will be asked to bring along relevant recruitment paperwork such as proof of your identification and ability to work so that we can hopefully recruit on the day subject to references.”
Gwen Hassall, Stoke-on-Trent City Council cabinet member for social services, said: “We believe working in care is a specialist career that can sometimes go unnoticed. Excellent care requires not only the right skills but the right personality, dedication and compassion. By working closely with employers, SASCES is not only delivering the city council’s Mandate for Change to create a working city, but ensuring those working in the care sector want to deliver only the highest standards of care to those who need support.”
