Home / Resources & Guidance / International Recruitment Webinar advice to solve 165,000 vacancies in adult social care – BA Healthcare who have placed 8,000 nurses and healthcare professionals across the UK

BA Healthcare have placed almost 8,000 nurses and healthcare professionals across the UK

On 22 September, Care England hosted a webinar to provide information on domestic and international recruitment to help care providers explore opportunities they can take to support recruitment for their organisations.

Skills for Care data highlights that vacancies within the adult social care sector have risen by 52%, with the sector currently dealing with 165,000 vacancies as well as the NHS facing an additional 140,000 vacancies. Workforce pressures continue to be one of the biggest matters affecting the sector and will only continue to persist if something is not done.

As part of Our Plan for Patients, Therese Coffey announced a £15m fund to support the international recruitment of care workers and the Department for Health and Social Care is working extensively to utilise this fund to accelerate international recruitment within the sector. Care England has, therefore, explored various avenues that would act as a means to help resolve both the short-term and long-term workforce pressures being faced by the adult social care sector.
