To coincide with Employability Day, 17 June, The Growth Company have launched a new Working in Health and Social Care brochure to help people interested in working in this sector. 

Would you like to work in a job role where you have the capacity to change lives for the better?

GC Employment has launched our Working in Health and Social Care brochure. In the Health and Social Care sector, you can work in a fast-paced environment where no two days are the same. Over 1.6 million people are employed within the sector with an additional 500,000 jobs, in over 80 different roles, to become available by 2030.

Our working brochure will cover how to get started, what training and qualifications you’ll need (and how to get them), job progression opportunities, and how to ‘step up’ into a senior role.

Employability Day (Friday 17th June) is an opportunity for employment support organisations and employers to celebrate their hard work in supporting people to enter/progress in employment. This blog looks at our Sales Team, and how they’ve been filling vacancies within the team and our partners.

Step into Work

Colin, one of our participants on the Restart Scheme, was booked in by his advisor Rayna to meet EEC’s Amy and Seb at our ‘Step into Work’ Eccles centre, for a face-to-face meeting aiming to support Colin in finding the right job opportunity. After their meeting with Colin, Amy and Seb recognised that he would make a great asset to the GC family within the EEC team. After passing his CV onto HR, Colin was quickly interviewed by Fern and Ronnie who agreed he was the right fit for this role within the team. Colin has been with GC for over month now and has settled in easily, building relationships with colleagues, finding suitable employers, and securing interviews for the caseloads the team supports. If you have customers like Colin who are ready to progress into employment, book them into a meeting with the Step into Work team.
