Local authorities choose the face-to-face option

With councils cutting their recruitment spending, many are going for the option to find their next employees by meeting them face-to-face.

The COMPASS Jobs Fair, Birmingham is just around the corner and Local Authorities are preparing to make this event a recruitment success for themselves. Councils are realising that they can slash their costs by attending events that enable them to meet hundreds of visitors from all areas of social work and care who are looking to talk to future employers in person. Extra benefits of recruiters attending the event are being able to build up a talent pool of people for future vacancies and have an online presence through the COMPASS website.

Councils looking to recruit social workers in children's and adult services include:

• Birmingham City Council

• Walsall Council

• Worcestershire County Council

• Torbay Council

• Kent County Council

• Staffordshire County Council

• Bedford Borough Council

• Peterborough City Council

• Wiltshire County Council

Come along on March 4th to talk to the councils and find out more about the your next position! 

There are also many employers from the voluntary and private sector as well as national organisations, charities, universities and training providers.
