AN open day is being staged next month for people interested in a career in home caring.

The Working in Care in Essex event, supported by Essex County Council (ECC), will be hosted by domiciliary care provider Carewatch at the Miami Hotel, Princes Road, Chelmsford, on April 2.

ECC's cabinet member for adults, health and community wellbeing, Cllr David Finch, said: "Homecare, also known as domiciliary care, supports people with care needs in their own homes, helping them to maintain their independence and overall quality of life.

"Caring is a very rewarding job. Come along to our open day event and see if working in homecare is the right career for you."

Frontline staff from a number of local organisations which provide homecare will be present to discuss requirements of the work, including training, support and career progression.

Lord Hanningfield will open the event at 10am. Anyone interested in attending can pop in at any time until the event finishes at 6.30pm.
