Could you join those who have already applied to make a real difference?

Our bid to find people across Worcestershire to help us make a real difference has got off to a great start.

We have received a number of applications to help the Council back-fill and support a number of caring roles across the county, ensuring that the care requirements of our residents are met.

But we still require more, so could you follow Emma Hill, who has become one of the first people to be offered a new role to help care for the most vulnerable in the county?

Emma said: “Before I applied to the council, I was working as a Barmaid and Waitress in a pub. When I heard about the possibility of working with the council, I was instantly intrigued by the prospect of being able to help those who are most vulnerable.

“The application process was straightforward. I simply filled out an application form and was soon contacted and asked for an interview. This interview took place over the phone in a matter of days, and very soon after I was offered the position. I am extremely grateful to have been able to gain this post, and am excited to be able to support others during this difficult time.”

The County Council is offering a number of competitively paid job opportunities, with training. You do not need any prior care experience, just a willingness to help. Positions are available in our care homes, residential care settings and in people’s homes.

Councillor Adrian Hardman, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Adult Social Care, said: “We’ve been really encouraged by the applications that we’ve had so far and the desire shown by people to help support others at this time. These roles are extremely important in helping our current staff manage the demand across the county as we move forward during the Coronavirus outbreak. So, if you’re looking for a new challenge, get in touch with us and help us make a real difference to people’s lives.”

If you’re able to be ‘here to help’, we’d like to hear from you. More information, including details of how to apply, can be found on the make a real difference pages of the Council's website.
