carecareers is a not-for-profit careers service that shares true insights into working life and opportunities in the disability and community care sector of New South Wales (NSW).
Recognising the need to improve attraction, recruitment and retention within the NSW disability and community care sector, in order to develop a sustainable workforce to meet these growing demands, the Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC) Department of Human Services (NSW) has funded this workforce recruitment initiative, which has been developed by National Disability Services, NSW.
carecareers aims to grow the pool of talent available within the disability and community care sector, and to develop, implement and test a number of targeted attraction strategies.
The carecareers website (www.carecareers.com.au) and fully staffed Careers Centre exist to assist you in all of your recruitment needs, whether you're a candidate or hiring manager in the sector.
This exciting initiative will also benefit people already working in the sector. Existing employees can share experiences with colleagues and peers, gain insight from others, see what career opportunities exist and enjoy the benefits of a support service.
Various high profile multi-media awareness campaigns form another part of carecareers, and drives interest in the sector. The campaigns also help to shift public perception around the work involved and its associated rewards.
