Recruitment campaign toolkit

About the campaign

We have launched our largest ever recruitment campaign for careers in adult social care in Leicestershire. At the heart of the campaign is a powerful video advert featuring care professionals and people who use services from across our county. The aim of the campaign is to celebrate and recognise the talent and skill of care professionals, to build pride and identity in our sector, and to attract high-quality candidates to adult social care vacancies.

As an Inspired to Care member you can benefit from the campaign in the following ways:

  • Upload your vacancies to our FREE vacancy board to take advantage of the campaign website traffic
  • Share the campaign film with your current staff to help them feel valued and proud of their profession
  • Use the downloadable resources on this webpage to promote your vacancies in your local community
