Challenges and opportunities in the recruitment and retention of social work and social care staff
This seminar looks at the issues around recruitment and retention facing the social work and social care sector.
The difficulties in recruitment and retention in social work and social care are well known. Mainstream media regularly reports the difficulties caused by levels of pay and unsocial hours. Less attention is sometimes paid to the satisfactions, including circumstances in which workers feel they have made a positive difference to people’s lives.
This seminar will draw on recent research on recruitment and retention in social care and social work to highlight the multiple factors that impact upon it.
