Scotland announces free jobs board for care home recruitment

Scottish care homes will be able to advertise vacancies free of charge on the myjobscotland.gov.uk recruitment website.

In a statement to the Scottish parliament, Minister for Mental Wellbeing and Social Care Kevin Stewart said this would be accompanied by an adult social care recruitment campaign in January.

When pressed on funding for pay, the minister said: “Adult social care workers in Scotland are paid much more than those in Wales or England.” He also blamed the UK Government’s immigration policy for the recruitment difficulties in running a care home. He said: “I talked to one service that had lost 40 per cent of its workforce because of Brexit—which is not good enough.”
