Stockport Together, representing Stockport’s five main health and social care organisations, are looking to recruit for a growing number of roles in the areas of health & social care in Stockport
Despite a successful recruitment open day at Stockport Town Hall, Stockport Together still have a number of vacancies to fill.
The five organisations, working collectively under the name Stockport Together, are combining their skills to change the way services are provided to meet the needs of the 300,000 people in Stockport. In order to do this, more health and social care professionals are required to join the growing team.
Councillor Wendy Wild, Stockport Council’s Cabinet Member for Stockport Together, explained:
“The recruitment open day was a resounding success, and it was great to see so many people coming through the doors to find out about the roles we have available.
“We know we need to recruit staff across all professions to continue to offer top quality care, and some of the positions we’re trying to fill do not require previous experience or professional qualifications. So if you’ve always wanted a career in health or social care, now’s the opportune time to apply.”
The interactive recruitment day last month advertised a number of vacancies including community staff nurses, neighbourhood support workers, mental health support workers, senior support workers, social workers, occupational therapists and mental health practitioners.
Representatives from local care homes, the Wellbeing Independence Network (WIN) and The Prevention Alliance (TPA) were also at the event to offer insight into the latest job opportunities.
The event was part of a wider recruitment campaign which has also included open days at Stepping Hill Hospital for trained nurses and health care assistants for both hospital and community.
