What is Herefordshire Cares?

Herefordshire Cares is a new Herefordshire Council initiative to raise the profile of those working in the adult social care sector and recruit more people into the sector.

Adult social care organisations in Herefordshire are recruiting now to meet increased demand

Care organisations are experiencing an increased demand for their services which means there is a need to increase the number of adult social care workers delivering care and support to residents of Herefordshire. There’s never been a better time to start a career in, or return to, working in this incredibly rewarding sector.

It is estimated that the county’s older population will continue to grow over the next 20 years, as will the need for people to received care and support.

This is why Herefordshire Cares exists. We’re here to raise awareness of the diverse range of vacancies across the county, to share stories, to celebrate the work of our key workers do every day, and to match you with your perfect role. In turn, we’ll be helping the people that need us to live their lives to the fullest.

What can you bring?

In the care sector there is a wealth of roles from working in frontline care, managerial positions to working the office, from activities coordinators to team leaders. While every role is different from the other, they have one thing in common – they all help people that need care and support.

Be proud to care Here

We’ve spoken with care workers across the county and asked them why they love their job. This is what they tell us:

  • I feel fulfilled.
  • I love caring for others.
  • I’m proud to be the one to put smiles on faces.
  • I love that I help older people stay in their own homes for longer.
  • I feel such satisfaction knowing that I’m keeping people safe.
  • I’ve got a job that fits around my other commitments.
  • I’ve worked my way up.
  • I’ve developed skills I never dreamed I would.
  • The team I work with feels like my extended family.

Your experience will be unique, your skills will be unique, the hours that you can work will be unique. It’s this uniqueness that we need to create a wonderfully diverse care sector.
