The social services sector is growing and this means there are opportunities for people looking for a new career, whether that’s people changing jobs or people who are just starting out.
So what are these opportunities, and what role can employment support workers have in helping this important workforce to grow sustainably?
We speak to Kerry Cannon, Learning and Development Adviser at the Scottish Social Services Council and Susie Ferguson, Partnership Manager at the Department for Work and Pensions about current recruitment opportunities and the important role employability organisations can have in supporting these.
This will be interesting to people working in employment support, such as work coaches and key workers; and employers and those with an interest in social services workforce planning.
