Rossendale council along with their colleagues from Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) are holding a carer career fair at Futures Park on 25 November.
The event which runs from 2-4pm is open to everyone and is an opportunity for people who may be interested in care work to speak to local care businesses about job opportunities.
Council Leader Alyson Barnes said: “Since the pandemic began, one of the things that was brought into sharp focus was the importance of key workers and the crucial role they play. None more so than care workers and we want to ensure that the care businesses in our borough are well supported and staffed, and so events like this help make a difference.
“I’d encourage anyone who might be interested in looking at a career in care to come along, talk to different employers and see what roles are on offer.”
The event will bring together care businesses and potential employees to fulfil live care roles available in Rossendale right now.
There will be a space so interviews can happen on the day with immediate starts on offer for the right candidates.
All the care providers attending offer full training and the chance to gain a recognised care qualification.
