Organisation: Leeds City Council

Job Title: Social Care Workers

Leeds social care is still open for business

There are social care job opportunities available now through the ‘We Care’ Academy

In the coming weeks and months, social care providers will play a crucial role in keeping the city going and protecting our most vulnerable residents.

A variety of roles are available in a range of different settings including at home care, supported living care and residential care. They are suited to people who care about the quality of life and welfare of other people.

The jobs require a caring and nurturing personality, empathy and patience. Full training will be provided, so previous experience isn’t necessary.

Leeds City Council will be working with a number of social care employers who have vacancies across the city.

The recruitment process:

The Academy uses a values-based recruitment and selection process for entry into the sector. Assessments focus on a candidates’ values, attitudes and behaviours which are in line with that of the care sector; and basic literacy and numeracy.

Leeds City Council will carry out the processing of the necessary enhanced and portable Disclosing and Barring Service (DBS) certificates. The council collates this information and the person’s employment history along with documents required under the Asylum and Immigration Act.

The council will ensure that people are trained and in their roles within two weeks. There will be a rolling programme of assessments followed by training from early April 2020.

People whose jobs have been affected by the pandemic are particularly encouraged to apply.
