People looking for work were invited to a Proud to Care Cornwall hiring event last week, where you could leave with an offer of employment.

The event took place at Heartlands in Pool. Care providers from across the area were there to meet people and conduct interviews. It follows on from the success of an event held in Penzance in January this year where many people walked away with an offer of employment. 

Cornwall Council Cabinet member for adult social care and health Cllr Andy Virr said: “After the success of the last event this is a great opportunity for those in the Pool, Camborne and Redruth area to come along and find out more about working in a care role.

“As many of the providers are locally based often you might not even need a car to carry out your role. You can help people in your surrounding area, making it convenient for you, with the bonus of knowing you are helping your neighbours into such a worthwhile profession.”

A wide range of adult social care sector employers were there with roles available across west Cornwall including Camborne, Redruth, Hayle, Helston, St Ives, Penzance and in Truro. Employers included The Rainbow Group, Calton House,  Trelawney, Kerrier Home Care, Pendeen Community Care, Anson Care, Bluebird Care and Swallowcourt.

More events are being planned:

Thursday, March 16, 12noon – 7pm at Eliot House Hotel, Liskeard.

Tuesday, March 28, 12noon – 7pm at White River Community Church, St Austell.
