Are you currently looking for, or applying for front-line work in a care home?

HWLincs are currently undertaking a piece of work focussed on understanding the workforce of our care homes. In particular, we are interested in hearing from those people who have recently, or who are currently applying for senior or front-line care roles. 

The aim is to explore what attracts people to work in a care home environment, what they want to achieve personally and professionally, understand the reasons for choosing care homes as a career choice and identify some of their aspirations and concerns. 

Taking a few minutes to complete these questions will support a local and national understanding of the care home workforce.
