Wokingham Borough Council is joining the national ‘Every Day is Different’ campaign in a bid to recruit carers across the borough. This signals our commitment to deliver vital services and compassionate care to vulnerable people across the area in partnership with our care providers.
Nationally there is a continuing demand for care workers to support the increasing number of people who require care. We are asking our local care providers to upload their job vacancies to the Every Day is Different job board and our dedicated page.
Cllr Charles Margetts, executive member for health, wellbeing, and adult services, said: “We’re working together to ensure the best possible outcomes for our residents. By joining the Every Day is Different campaign we aim to highlight the many benefits of working in the care sector.”
“Our care workers in Wokingham do an exceptional job and make a real difference to people’s lives, and this has been highlighted by Covid-19. We are grateful to our care workers who have demonstrated compassion, resilience, and a dedication to those they support.”
“Working as a carer can be very flexible. People can work round other commitments and many providers offer a range of working patterns. Care workers support a variety of people and develop rewarding relationships. They help people live independently in their communities by meeting individual care needs.”
“If you would feel a sense of personal achievement from helping other people live better lives this could be the career for you.”
If you are interested in starting your career in care you can view our live vacancies on our website and find out more about a career in care by visiting our dedicated page. Simply head to www.wokingham.gov.uk and search ‘social care jobs from other providers.’
Applicants do not require prior qualifications or experience to apply. Full training towards recognised qualifications is often provided, with opportunities to learn new skills.
The employers listed on the Council site have all committed to promoting better quality of care and working conditions for care workers. providing fair pay, benefits, and conditions.
