Health Care Support Worker hiring event webinar

Date: 23 November 2021

webinars

NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE/I) Nursing Workforce Improvement Team are jointly holding a webinar with their partners at Indeed, to encourage Health Care Support Worker (HCSW) applications from ethnic minority men.

This hiring event forms part of the Widening Access and Supporting Diversity Workstream of the HCSW 2021-2022 campaign, that aims to support the recruitment of a more diverse and inclusive HCSW workforce.

Presently, men from ethnic minority groups are substantially underrepresented in our HCSW workforce and our long-term goal is to change this. This webinar forms part of a series we are running that aims to raise awareness of HCSW job opportunities to this particular audience, and to support Trusts to make their workforce more diverse and inclusive.

The webinar will have current HCSWs speakers from this demographic share their motivations for applying to the role; provide a realistic picture of what they do day-to-day; what they enjoy about the role; learning and development opportunities they have had; and what career progression is on offer. At the end there will also be an opportunity for a live Q&A, where candidates can ask any questions they may have.

Our call-to-action will be prompting candidates to apply to an open vacancy or, if possible, setting them up for a first-stage interview with a Trust.

The date and details of the webinar are below:

Date: 29 November 2021
