Adult Social Care Vacancies are going to Double in a Year

Vacancies at homecare and private nursing are appearing to be on the rise. Those who offer bespoke care packages and those who work in mental health are leaving their jobs due to the stress that they are under. Social workers are leaving their positions due to the pressure that they are under. The amount of posts that are filled has decreased by an average of around 4.6% and this was between March 2021 and March 2022. Skills for Care have stated that this decrease is somewhat unusual and that the vacancy rate has risen which points to retention difficulties. People do not believe that this is due to an increase in demand and that employers are not able to find the staff that they need to provide a good service. If you look at the mandatory vaccination policy that took place last year then you will soon see that this has helped to contribute to the rise in vacancies.

Thousands of care workers have had to leave their job since the mandate came in and this is putting even more strain on the industry as we know it. People know the issues that they are facing right now but it is very difficult to support employees when it comes to tackling them. It is just not possible to try and stop the vacancies from rising but at the end of the day, it is only natural that people want to do what they can to try and counter the issue by taking the right steps to ease the situation.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like work can be done fast enough to stop the rising vacancies but at the same time, it looks like something has to be done to stop the care sector from plunging into ruin.
