Fostering Recruitment goes to Dagenham

Archived: Posted June 12, 2013

With a national shortage of foster carers across the UK, we’re always looking to recruit new carers through various campaigns and from all walks of life and backgounds. So in May our team from the South region attended two days of job fairs hosted by Dagenham Motors.

With the recent announcement of redundancies at the main factory in Dagenham, the job fair was a great opportunity for employees to find out about other potential career choices, fostering being one of them.

The team spoke to staff about what fostering involves and answered questions as well as handing out lots of carer recruitment literature to those who were interested.

Haroon Ali, senior fostering advisor for the South region commented:

“The event was a great success. We were able to raise awareness of fostering as a really worthwhile profession and it was clear that some people we spoke to were clearly interested in finding out more. The team were great ambassadors for Core Assets Fostering as they chatted away to people about the transferrable skills and qualities needed for fostering.”
