As sponsors of the Compass Jobs Fair, Birmingham for the past 9 years Birmingham City Council have been a major part of the success of the largest one day social work and social care event in the UK. Many thousands have benefited from the free seminars and been able to speak to employers about positive practice and career development. In addition to offering free PRTL for qualified staff the event has proved invaluable in promoting the profession to students and those considering social work or social care as a career.
I am very pleased that Birmingham City Council have sponsored the Compass Jobs Fair in Birmingham. The Compass Jobs Fair gives organisations the opportunity to meet directly with people who may be interested in a career in social care. It also gives people the chance to hear first hand from staff and management about the work, the challenges and the opportunity that face those people working in the sector.
