People interested in making a real difference to the lives of adults and children in Shropshire are being encouraged to choose a career in social care. Both Shropshire Council and social care providers across Shropshire are actively recruiting and welcoming talented and passionate individuals to join their social care teams.
The callout follows the government’s “Made with Care” campaign launched by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC). The campaign encourages people with the values that embody carers to join a workforce dedicated to helping others and building a career that helps people live happy, healthy lives.
Social care is an immensely stimulating and fulfilling career, and offers an extremely varied and rewarding profession with opportunities to suit every type of carer. Social care professionals work across many different settings, including: older people, children and young people’s services, mental health, community, primary care, and disabilities.

- Support workers
- Social workers
- Senior social workers
