Social care professionals can find out more about some of the job opportunities available in Wolverhampton at a recruitment fair in Birmingham next week.

Representatives from the City of Wolverhampton Council's Adults and Children's Social Care services will be on hand to highlight current vacancies in the city at the annual Compass Jobs Fair, the largest social work and social care recruitment, retention and career development event in the UK.

The vacancies include social worker posts within the Looked After Children Service, the Disabled Children and Young People Team and the Children in Need and Child Protection Service, while people can also find out about future opportunities within Adult Social Care services.

Job hunters will also be able to speak to employees already working in Wolverhampton about their experiences.

Councillor Val Gibson, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: "We are attending this national event to raise the profile of social care services in Wolverhampton and promote the opportunities currently available, which in turn will help us further improve the already high standard of social work practice in the City."

Cabinet Member for Adult Services, Councillor Sandra Samuels OBE, added: "We're keen to hear from talented social care professionals looking for the opportunity to make a real difference to service users, and I'd encourage people to meet the team from the City of Wolverhampton Council on stand 24."
