Calling people to work in Doncaster’s adult social care services

It has only been a month since Doncaster Council launched the Social Care Academy to help recruit people into various paid jobs in adult social care but in that time we have had a fantastic response from people wanting to make a difference during the Covid-19 emergency.

Since the launch of the Doncaster Social Care Academy we have matched 101 people to a caring role. But we want more people to come forward who want to make a difference to people’s lives. So, if you want to help and think you have what it takes to be a care assistant or support worker please call us on 01302 735556.

Imagine if you were not able to make the most of your talents or imagine if you were unable to make a hot drink for yourself. Now imagine you have been trained as a care worker or support assistant and you can make it all happen for these people. You can make their day and make yours as well.

Councillor Rachael Blake, Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, said: “Looking after some of our most vulnerable Doncaster residents is crucial work and while lots of people have already contacted us about helping out, we do need more local heroes to come forward.

“This recruitment drive is more than just filling a short term gap during this emergency, working in the care sector is a long term career offering people a hugely rewarding job for the future.

“People don’t need a background in care, they just need a passion to help. The recruitment process is straightforward, full training will be given and please be reassured that full personal protection equipment (PPE) is provided and safe working practices are in place.

“If you are looking for work, considering a change of career or feel you can be one of our many key workers doing such an amazing job in our communities please get in touch. You can make a real difference and we need your support.”

The academy will quickly match your interests, skills and experience with the available jobs.

If you are inspired to help and are interested in work, please call our Doncaster Social Care Academy team on 01302 735556 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday or email: advance@doncaster.gov.uk
