Dozens of jobs on offer at upcoming Social Care Jobs Fair

Dozens of exciting social care job vacancies will be promoted at a jobs fair in Bridgend County Borough this week.


Opportunities in roles such as Children’s Residential Care, Domiciliary Care, Supported Living, Day Services and Community Hubs, and Volunteering and Apprenticeships will be showcased as part of Bridgend County Borough Council’s ongoing social care recruitment drive.


Support and guidance will be available for those interested in working in the social care sector from members of the local authority’s recruitment team, support at home care staff, Employability Bridgend and a variety of independent care providers.


Staff from Foster Wales Bridgend will also be attending the event to discuss the opportunities and support available to those who are interested in becoming foster carers and fostering a child in the county borough.


Organised by Employability Bridgend, the free drop-in event will be held at the Employability Bridgend Hub, Ty Llynfi, Maesteg, CF34 9DS on Wednesday 15 February between 10am and 2pm.


Enquiries from drivers and non-drivers are welcome. Not all vacancies require the use of a vehicle, however there is support available for those who are interested in undertaking driving lessons for the roles that do.

For further information about the job fair, please contact Employability Bridgend on 01656 815317 or alternatively, email:

These drop-in events always prove to be very popular and are a fantastic opportunity for people to find out everything they need to know about working for the local authority in the social care sector. We really need to encourage more people to consider the many benefits of working in social care. It’s a hugely rewarding career, one in which you don’t always need qualifications, and with the support and training opportunities that we offer as an organisation, along with flexible working hours, it really is a job for life.”

Councillor Jane Gebbie, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Social Services.
