Carmarthenshire County Council has launched a county-wide campaign to encourage more people into a career in social care.
The campaign, which focuses on real people in real situations, shines the spotlight on the council’s dedicated team of carers who deliver an outstanding service throughout the county and encourages others to consider a career in care.
Cllr Jane Tremlett, Carmarthenshire’s Cabinet Member for social care and health, said: “Our new recruitment campaign focuses on the type of person we are looking for to help us deliver a quality care service. We need positive, kind and caring individuals to join our team and help us to make a difference to service users in Carmarthenshire.
“We can offer support and training to those with no previous experience, but what we need most are people with a friendly nature and a positive attitude.”
Home and residential care vacancies are available throughout the county with full time and casual positions available.
As a carer, duties include providing personal care (bathing, dressing and other tasks), meal preparation and a range of other duties, to help promote independence where possible and to provide a good quality service to those in need.
The council offers good rates of pay with full and part-time, permanent and temporary contracts available.
For more information on care job vacancies please e-mail SCRecruitment@carmarthenshire.gov.uk or call 01267 228703.

The council say that their requirement to recruit additional care workers in both home and residential care roles mirrors shortages seen throughout the UK.
