This August, Doncaster Children’s Services Trust will be hosting a recruitment event like no other as they continue their series of open events to give social workers a taste of what it is like working for the borough.

Participants joining the online event will have the opportunity to experience first-hand the level of support on offer at the Trust, through a mini-meditation session set to focus on self-compassion. This is just one of the many brilliant feature of support that are on offered to Trust employees as a result of the pandemic pressures

Alongside this the Trust are offering an informal meet and greet with the Director of Social Care, Rebecca Wilshire and current social workers who will share details around the performance, culture and benefits of the Trust, as well as addressing how the organisation has dealt with the pressures of the current pandemic and its plans for its keyworkers going forward. 

Speaking ahead of the day Rebecca Wilshire, Director of Children’s Social Cares said:

“The last 16 months have been a difficult period for all, especially towards key workers. It has made an already challenging role, that much more complex. This is why it is essential that we take time to reflect on ourselves and mental wellbeing so we can provide the best possible care to our children, young people, and families.”

“This virtual event is a great opportunity to come along, listen and try our approach to social care and see if it is an environment you can see yourself thriving in. You will meet some of our friendly team members who will be available to answer any questions you might have around how we put the child at the heart of all we do.”

In aims to reach a wider audience, the event will take place on Wednesday 18 August, 6pm to 7pm. Attendees do not need specialist software installed to join the event, all they will need is access to a computer or mobile device and to the internet.
