MERSEY­SIDE res­i­dents are be­ing in­vited to find out more about ca­reers in Sefton’s care sec­tor at an event in Nether­ton.

New Di­rec­tions, the bor­ough’s lead­ing adult so­cial care provider, is stag­ing a jobs fair at the Feel­good Fac­tory on Glovers Lane be­tween 9.30am and 2pm on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 8.

Staff from the or­gan­i­sa­tion will be on hand to brief guests on the wide range of ser­vices op­er­ated by its 500-strong team for peo­ple across Sefton with sup­port needs due to dis­abil­i­ties, age or men­tal health con­di­tions.

They will also pro­vide de­tails of a num­ber of full and part-time po­si­tions that New Di­rec­tions is look­ing to fill im­me­di­ately in two of its key ser­vices – Re­able­ment and Domi­cil­iary Care.

Re­able­ment team mem­bers sup­port pa­tients through­out Sefton who have been dis­charged from hospi­tal, or peo­ple who have had an ill­ness, fall or other cri­sis at home.

The aim is to help them re­gain their life skills and con­fi­dence, and to main­tain their in­de­pen­dence, thus re­duc­ing pressure on hospi­tal beds.

Mean­while, the Domi­cil­iary Care team sup­ports older peo­ple in the south of the bor­ough who still live by them­selves

Staff pro­vide help with per­sonal care, house­hold tasks and a range of other ac­tiv­i­ties that en­able clients to re­main at home and main­tain their qual­ity of life.

“It’s an ideal op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to de­velop a ca­reer in so­cial care, and at the same to make a real dif­fer­ence to vul­ner­a­ble mem­bers of the lo­cal com­mu­nity.”
