More than 100 people turned out for a recruitment day at Telford Shopping Centre. The event, organised by Shropshire
Partners in Care, was aimed at filling the gap in Shropshire’s care workforce. There is currently a shortage of care workers and the day was part of a wider recruitment drive aimed at encouraging prospective carers to start the process of applying for a job.
Nicky Jacques of Shropshire Partners in Care said, “The response to our recruitment day was excellent. More than 100
people came along and there was certainly a high level of interest expressed in caring as a job. Being a care worker is
extremely rewarding and knowing that you are making a real difference to someone’s life is really fulfilling.”
