Promoting a Fostering Career at Peterborough Job Fair

Archived: Posted June 6, 2013

Core Assets Fostering - EasternOn 16th May, Core Assets went to a Job Show held at Peterborough Football Ground. Fostering advisor for the Eastern region, Hillary, and Rodney, a carer ambassador, were available to provide information and to talk to prospective foster carers about what fostering is all about.

Many foster carers urge people thinking about a caring career to talk to someone who actually does the job every day; this is why it was great to have Rodney there to answer any questions people had.

Lots of people came along to the event and many stopped by to have a chat and Rodney spoke to them about his role as a foster carer, his accomplishments with the young people and how rewarding fostering can be.

“These events are always good to attend to promote a positive image of the brand name as you might be talking to future foster carers” said Hillary.

“Though many at the event were looking for other forms of employment, there were definitely some people who began to see fostering as a career they would like to find out more about and that’s great news.”
