WeCare Wales is highlighting the care industry with #WeCareWeek (November 16 until 22) and the variety of jobs that are available in Wales.
Care workers will share their experiences of how they started their career in care, what it’s like working in different roles and what they enjoy about working in the sector through www.wecare.wales/wecare-wales-week-2020 and people can also find out about career events and job vacancies, including positions at Abacare.
We are listed as one of the social care employers that people interested in the industry can find out more about on www.wecare.wales so they can potentially join our team.
The campaign is a collaboration with Social Care Wales and leading organisations representing social care, early years and childcare in Wales, as well as other national bodies involved in job-seeking and careers advice.
It is part of a long-term strategy to develop the workforces in the care and health sectors over the next decade, to provide a high-quality, seamless service to the people of Wales.
The campaign highlights the breadth of career opportunities in care. From childminders and nursery practitioners to home care co-ordinators and care home managers.
The WeCare campaign aims to show the variety of roles and career progression opportunities available. By using real care workers, the campaign focuses on the challenges they face, as well as what makes their work rewarding and worthwhile.
The social care sector is under increasing pressure from an ageing population, and the current pandemic, to provide care to vulnerable individuals across the country.
There are currently thousands of people in the hospitality, leisure and retail industries who are facing unemployment. We, along with WeCare Wales, are urging them to consider transferring their skills to a long-term role in the care industry.
Anyone interested in a position, can visit www.wecare.wales.
