Hamira Khan, started her career as a carer in Manchester and now works as care manager with Age UK. She says that care work is flexible, and you don't need experience because of the training that is given and regarding the rewards of the work, she said: "The expression of the smile and happiness of something you have done for them, it just makes your day. And the smile that you give to them, and they give back it's just beautiful."
Councillor Thomas Robinson, Executive Member for Healthy Manchester and Social Care said:
“This is our first recruitment event in the sector for several years and I would urge residents to take this opportunity to meet employers face to face and find out for themselves about working in care and all the possibilities that a career in this sector offers.
“People already working in the care sector say that it is one of the most rewarding jobs they have ever had so this event is a chance to bring job seekers together with prospective employers and find people passionate about working in care.”
The event is organised by Manchester Local Care Organisation which is a partnership of the NHS and Manchester City Council. Find out more and book your free place in advance at www.manchesterlco.org/jobsfair or just come along on the day of the event.
