Staffordshire Social Care recruitment agency listing

The social care industry

is an important part of the UK labour market and employs over two million professionals nationwide. The sector covers a range of areas including child care, disabilities, nursing homes and supported housing and is a valuable service to both the economy and the UK population. Social care in

Staffordshire

has been under the spotlight in recent years and finding personnel who can work in this challenging environment can prove difficult for employers. Specialist Staffordshire social care recruitment agencies play a key role in supplying local social care staff for permanent, temporary or contract jobs.

 

Job cuts and comparatively low salaries, coupled with long days and often difficult working conditions, have made the Staffordshire social care industry a tough field to enter. The average salary for workers tends to be £25K per annum, although nearly a third of staff will only earn between £15K-£21K. A registered nurse, outreach worker and residential support worker will typically earn the latter. Senior management roles can earn in excess of £40K, but only around 10%-20% of the industry will reach this figure.

Stoke-on-Trent

, Newcastle-under-Lyme and

Stafford

offer the best locations for job opportunities in the county, whereas those willing to commute will find the wider

West Midlands

area to be an excellent way of entering the industry.

 

While the social care industry doesn't require any specific qualifications to enter, relevant training and NVQs will need to be undertaken whilst on the job. When assessing candidates, recruiters will generally look at those who have work or life experience, as well as interpersonal soft skills. Desired attributes include an empathetic nature, good communication and a passion and enthusiasm for the job. A Staffordshire social or health care recruitment agency will understand what is required of industry candidates before offering local staffing solutions to their clients.
