On-the-day interviews will be on offer from a number of employers at a joint health and social care recruitment event, which takes place in Hereford at the end of the month.

Hereford Shirehall is the venue for jobs fair being staged by health and social care providers across Herefordshire who are looking specifically for new recruits to work out in the county’s communities.

The fair will run from 10am to 4pm on Friday, September 28.

Organisations behind the event include: Wye Valley NHS Trust, Herefordshire Council, 2gether NHS FT, St Michael’s Hospice, Taurus Healthcare (local GP federation), Herefordshire Clinical Commissioning Group, Hoople Ltd and other local care providers.

Visitors to the event will be able to discuss dozens of current job opportunities with the organisations – some of which the organisers will be hoping to recruit to on the day.



Councillor Paul Rone, Herefordshire Council, cabinet member for health & wellbeing and housing said: “If you’ve ever thought about a career working in either social care or within the health sector in Herefordshire, this a jobs fair you can’t afford to miss.

“We’re bringing together the partners within ‘One Herefordshire,’ for the event. One Herefordshire is the umbrella which brings together the local public service organisations responsible for commissioning and providing the majority of health and social care services across Herefordshire.

“We’re also hoping that local people who have worked in these sectors in the past, but have since left but want to return, will come along for a conversation about how we can support them with their training and to explore how we can help them regain qualifications or registrations.

“Health and social care services are key in any county, but they’re particularly important in a county like Herefordshire which is very rural and has an increasing number of older residents.

“With that in mind, we’ll be keen to speak to people who would like to work out in communities providing care close to, or in people’s homes.

“This will be a great opportunity for local people to find out how they can give something back to their own communities.

“A number of jobs will be available on the day and representatives from the various organisations will be on hand to guide potential candidates through application forms and answer any questions.

“If you’re interested in a career in social care, pop in and have a chat with the representatives who will be on hand to provide advice and support.”
