To help tackle corona virus in London more care workers are needed to support people leaving hospital.
Proud to Care London is a recruitment web site for the care sector that links people into crucial jobs, providing much needed care and support to people in our communities. It has been developed as a partnership with councils across London.
If you are interested in working in care & supporting people in their own home, in a care home or other residential setting, please check out www.proudtocareLondon.org.uk and see people talk about the work. Many jobs can be flexible and part-time.
There are six main job roles that people can register interest in: care workers, care managers, social workers, OTs (occupational therapist), chefs and cleaners. You will be supported with free online training, checks such as DBS, advice on job roles and matched with local jobs. You can register your interest by completing a short online survey.
Caring is a frontline job and care workers need to be healthy to support those most vulnerable in our communities. On 15th April the government published details of their plan for coronavirus safety in the care sector on 15th April.
