Care workers needed ahead of Brexit, claims charity
A CARE provider is launching a recruitment drive amidst fears of a “perfect storm” of staff shortages and the impact of Brexit.
The [email protected] campaign will highlight the various roles and opportunities in the sector, with a specific focus on attracting those from non-care related backgrounds, and men.
The company said the number of vacancies in the sector is increasing, with the latest data from the
Care Inspectorate indicating 38 per cent of services have vacancies.
There are fears Brexit could exacerbate the problem because it could lead to lower levels of immigration to Scotland.
EU nationals currently account for 5.6% of staff in the care sector north of the border, with 42% of care services recruitment overseas coming from the EU.
[email protected] is based in Hamilton.
