PBS Recruitment Partners
The Social Care Exchange recently hosted the launch of a new Recruitment Partner Project – an exciting new programme bringing Home From Home Care’s Micro Communities together to learn new skills, working as a team to find and develop new staff for their homes.
11 service users across all the micro-communities have elected to join the programme with a view to becoming a HFHC Recruitment Partner. They will all take part in a fully inclusive 5-week curriculum based at The Social Care Exchange, consisting of a range of learning outcomes. These include; communication, identifying what makes a good support worker and helping compile interview questions, with plenty of role play sessions included to learn about the recruitment process.
The first meeting was a great success with Recruitment Partners taking part in a ‘getting to know you’ session, sharing likes and dislikes. The highlight involved creating fantastic outfits to wear at an interview, using an array of innovative craft material with awards for Most Professional, Best First Impression, Most Improved, Most Creative and Best Accessories. All service users and staff remarked on what fun they had and how they cannot wait until next week, with the programme completing at the end of June.
