There are currently a number of issues linked to recruitment- skills shortages are wreaking havoc, employment rates are creeping up and competition for top talent is fierce. This doesn’t only affect us as a business, but also our clients.
We are proud to be passionate about the success of our clients’ businesses as well as the sectors they work within.
On 30th January, Cohesion is holding a Social Care Recruitment roundtable event on future-proofing the UK Care Sector Workforce.
It’s estimated that the adult Social Care sector in England alone will need an additional 1 million workers by 2025, yet the sector is struggling to evolve.
Plagued by a number of challenges including low pay, high turnover, a disproportionate level of diversity, ignorance about career pathways and a negative image. Raising the profile of Social Care is a critical issue that needs to be addressed.
We are excited to be holding a roundtable discussion where we will be debating this hot topic with key players in the industry, including speakers from Skills for Care.
We have representatives attending from some great organisations, including Livewell Care, Midway Care Group, Turning Point, Helping Hands, Places for People, National Autistic Society, Central and Cecil Housing and The Guinness Partnership.
Also attending will be the PhD student we are sponsoring to carry out ground breaking research in to recruitment in the Social Care sector. Read more about our Social Care Recruitment PhD here.
This is an exciting opportunity for us to discuss issues in the industry, not just from a recruitment perspective, but from Social Care providers too.
