Skills for Care launches annual workforce report plus recruitment resources

Skills for Care has launched a recruitment resources spotlight page which collates a range of resources and content including videos, templates, best practice guidelines, training support, expert insight and advice.

As well as providing recruitment support for managers and those working in the sector, the activity will also highlight the value and variety of a career in social care for people considering a career in the sector, including school leavers who will be receiving their exam results in August.

The recruitment spotlight comes shortly after the release of Skills for Care’s annual ‘Size and structure of the adult social care sector and workforce in England’ data release which includes insights on factors including the number of jobs in adult social care and the number of people working in the sector.

The monthly workforce trackers  also monitor the impact of Covid-19, detailing data on days lost to sickness and current vacancy rates. The national vacancy rate in the sector is currently 7.4 per cent

In addition, Skills for Care recently released a three-year strategy to support recruitment within the sector.

During August and September, Skills for Care is running the #RecruitmentReady social media campaign. Resources to take part are available online.

  • The CareTech Charitable Foundation has committed to funding a three year graduate ‘Now Care’ talent development programme for social care. The aim is to have the first cohort of leaders entering the workforce in 2022.
