Boris Johnson, MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip, has joined MPs across the UK in supporting a national recruitment campaign, launching today, from the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), to address the 110,000 vacancies in adult social care across England.
Running across February and March, the campaign aims to fill the sector’s recruitment gap and support local recruitment activity by increasing interest in adult social care as a career choice and driving awareness of the variety of roles available. The national campaign will comprise social media, digital and local radio advertising, events and media relations across England.
Boris Johnson made the following statement about the campaign: “I fully support this campaign and am looking forward to seeing its impact on the number of vacancies throughout my constituency. By helping local employers recruit people with the right personal values for care work, our communities will be better supported by highly motivated and skilled workers.”
