In an effort to fill vanacies left in Newtown and Welshpool, a recruitment day for health and social care workers is being held in Welshpool.

Powys County Council and Powys Teaching Health Board are holding the joint recruitment drop-in event at Welshpool Town Hall on Monday, September 11, to promote opportunities in the field.

Anyone interested could walk away from the event with a conditional job offer, as the event offers visitors the chance to apply and be interviewed on the day.

Attendees can visit on the day, between 10am and 5pm, find out more about roles available across north Powys and have an informal chat with staff who will be present at the event.


Sian Cox, the council’s cabinet member for a caring Powys said: "Our carers support people with their daily needs to live independently in their own home.

“We currently have vacancies in the Newtown and Welshpool areas so do come along to the event to find out more.

“You may think social care isn't for you, but if you enjoy connecting with people and want to support people to leave hospital as soon as they're well to a place of their choice, it might be. 

“I was a support worker for 30 years, it's often challenging; but it's also rewarding. You will make a real difference to people's quality of life and play a real role in reducing the extraordinary pressures on social care in our county."

Powys County Council will be recruiting for care and support workers, while Powys Teaching Health Board will be advertising a range of role, from health care support workers to qualified nurses and therapists.
