Partners in Care promote the care sector, the jobs available within it and support our members with recruitment and retention.

Recruitment and Retention is a regular topic at our quarterly Registered Managers Network meetings, which gives the opportunity to share best practice and ideas for increasing recruitment into the sector, you can book to attend the meetings here.

What else have we done:

  • During June 2022 we organised ‘Care in the Square’ recruitment events in partnership with Shropshire Council. The events took place in 3 Shropshire Towns – Oswestry, Shrewsbury and Ludlow giving local providers the opportunity to promote their organisations and job vacancies.
  • 2022 and 2023 saw a series of smaller Care in the Square events in Darwin Shopping Centre, Shrewsbury and Telford Shopping Centre, Telford giving providers the opportunity to promote their vacancies out in the community. 
  • We created local case studies where people already working in adult social care pass on their thoughts and experiences for the benefit of others – view the case studies here
  • We developed 4 short films following the stories of local carers in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin. You hear in their own words the reasons they joined the care sector and why they love what they do. Our focus for the films was retraining from another sector, retiree and career progression – watch the videos here.
  • We worked with BBC Radio Shropshire to run a series during Carers Week featuring interviews with carers about their roles.
  • We have worked to developed resources that are used throughout the ICS to promote care.
