York Health and Social Care Joint Recruitment Event – Saturday 30th September 2017

Following a successful joint recruitment campaign with York Hospital Trust earlier this year, Skills for Care are once again holding another event on Saturday 30th September 10am-2pm in the entrance of York Hospital.

The event is aimed at recruiting people into current job opportunities within the health and social care sector. Whilst the majority of the stalls will be health focussed and within the NHS there is an opportunity for 5/6 York employers to reach out to prospective employees who may not have considered the closely aligned sectors of adult social care or housing.

We are asking for interested employers from adult social care and housing in the York area who wish to have a stall at this event to complete an expression of interest (attached) which should be returned to no later than Friday 22nd September  2017.

If anyone would like to have an informal chat about the event, please feel free to email me on or telephone 07813031257.
