Campaign launched in Leeds to promote careers in care

People who are looking for a rewarding career making a difference to people’s lives are being encouraged to apply for a range of health and social care roles as part of a new recruitment campaign launched in Leeds.

Leeds City Council and the NHS have joined forces to launch Next Step – Leeds, a campaign to highlight health and social care work as a rewarding career and to encourage people from all backgrounds to apply for a range of roles currently available.

Care assistants and children’s social workers, nurses and occupational therapists, porters and cleaners are just some of the roles on offer, working in a range of settings and organisations across the city.

Fiona Venner, Leeds City Council executive member for adult and children’s social care and health partnerships, said: “All these roles have one thing in common – they are all about caring for people during their time of need and improving their quality of life. Working in health and care is about doing something valuable but it’s also a rewarding career supported with training and development to help you progress and enjoy a range of opportunities and different roles.

“I would encourage anyone who is thinking of a new career and wanting to do something different and valuable, to come and join us in making a positive difference to people’s lives.”
