Foster Care Recruitment Revs Up A Gear

Archived: Posted May 20, 2013

Our South Western team encouraged ex-Honda employees to rev up their careers at a recent job fair in Wiltshire. The staff held an information stall at the event, which was organised by the car manufacturer after they cut over 800 jobs at their Swindon plant in January.

Carer ambassador – and previous Honda employee – Jim Humphries attended the event to support Core Assets in their foster carer recruitment and was interviewed by the BBC on the day of the event.

Jim told reporters: “It’s a long way from painting cars, but it is much more rewarding and much more interesting – with lots of challenges.”

“I have no regrets about becoming a foster carer”, explains Jim. “There can be challenges in fostering, but seeing a young person have positive experiences is so rewarding, and you realise you’re really making a difference.”

Jill Coulter, Fostering Service Manager for the region, says “The event was a huge success and Core Assets Fostering were the only fostering provider at the jobs fair. Over 50 information packs were distributed to prospective foster carers throughout the day and the team worked hard to reassure Honda employees that, like Jim, they could have the skills and qualities needed for fostering.”
