The Department of Health has launched a video to help employers, job centres and careers advisers recruit people into social care occupations.
The video aims to educate jobseekers and career changers about the many varied opportunities available in social care, by showing real-life carers at work and listening to them talk about their jobs.
The video demonstrates the breadth, diversity and job satisfaction that social carers enjoy. It has been developed in co-operation with JobCentre Plus and will be distributed to every Job Centre in England.
A copy is available free of charge to any careers adviser or public, private or voluntary sector organisation and can be ordered through www.socialcarecareers.co.uk
