A leading Scottish care provider is organising an event in Edinburgh to boost recruitment into the care sector amid the economic and unemployment turmoil presented by Covid-19.

Taking place between October 2 and October 3 at LOVE Gorgie Farm, the organisation, LOVE Care, seeks to attract a wide range of candidates, from those new to the sector to senior and experienced care workers, as well as social care students.

Attendees will learn about the available positions and the selection process. Once hired, they will receive ongoing mentoring, training and development opportunities to provide them with an exciting and rewarding career path, with positions across Edinburgh and the Lothians.

In addition to Real Living Wage pay and fully funded qualifications, salaries are reviewed yearly, reaching up to £12 per hour after two years of employment. Those with previous experience can apply for more senior positions and higher salaries.
