Jobs fair for those who care

Those curious about a career in care are being invited to a recruitment event hosted by Sunderland College.

<p>The event takes place at the college’s Bede campus on Durham Road, on Thursday, April 18 between 11am and 2pm.</p>
<p>Due to an ageing population there is currently a rising demand for skilled and compassionate staff in the industry.</p>
<p>Already more than ten different organisations and businesses have signed up to the event including Prestige Nursing and Care, Housing 21, Bluebird Care and Mears Care Ltd.</p>
<p>The purpose of the event is to bring together those interested in a career in care with employers who may have job opportunities and are looking to recruit new staff.</p>
<p>The event is aimed at existing and former Sunderland College students although those currently claiming job seekers allowance can book a place through their local Jobcentre Plus office.</p>
<p>Paul Stafford, Sunderland College’s employer liaison manager, said: “The event is one of many hosted by the college with the aim of boosting our student’s employment prospects.</p>
<p>“We have a variety of care business and organisations in attendance and members of our own apprenticeship and employability team will be on hand to offer advice and guidance to anyone who attends.</p>
<p>“This is great opportunity for people to put themselves in front of prospective employers and to find out more about a career in care.”</p>
<p>Places are limited so it is essential to book before attending and attendees are advised to bring along an up-to-date version of their CV.</p>
