A pioneering digital recruitment platform has launched a major recruitment drive to hire 40,000 carers in the next six months.

Join Social Care, which launched independently earlier this year, has already introduced 60,000 people into the care sector.

Martin Warnes, Director of Join Social Care, commented: “It is being widely reported … that there are more care vacancies now than pre-pandemic, and not enough applicants to fill them. At Join Social Care, we are stepping up and launching a new jobs drive to hire 40,000 new carers in the next six months – at a time when it is needed most.

“To be clear, hiring into social care has been challenging for many years which is why we have built a recruitment platform that focuses solely on the care sector. As a result, we are seeing growing numbers of candidates joining and they are actively engaging with job openings and providers across the platform. New roles are being advertised every day, and we’re seeing more applicants than advertisements which shows that there are roles and there are people out there looking for these roles.”

Join Social Care launched independently earlier this year with the aim of recruiting 100,000 new carers into the sector. The platform had previously partnered with the Department of Health and Social Care to support the nationwide recruitment of carers in response to the pandemic.

To date, Join Social Care has placed thousands of candidates into new roles. The company is used by national organisations such as Cera Care, Bluebird and Prestige Nursing as well as thousands of local and regional care homes and home care providers.
