Scottish Care have been involved in the organisation of a number of events taking place in the Highlands from 22-26 Jan. The purpose of these events is to promote recruitment and provide information about care.

Recruitment Fayre organiser Julie Fraser, Care at Home Development Officer explains the aims:

“The idea is to provide information about what support and services are available for local residents and how they can be accessed. In addition, we want to show jobseekers that there are considerable opportunities for them to work in their own communities in a flexible way.

“From entry level to more senior positions, these opportunities will include caring jobs from care support workers for people of all ages to domiciliary care jobs caring for people in their own homes.

“Many of these jobs are flexible and can fit around childcare arrangements. In many instances, no qualifications are required and they are open to drivers and non-drivers, with many jobs allowing people to work close to home.

“And there are not just opportunities for jobseekers. There is also considerable scope for volunteers to help out in the care at home sector if people want to put something back into their community.”
