Recruitment events will promote roles in social care

Are you a caring and compassionate person who would love to make a difference in your local community?

The service currently has a number of permanent and temporary positions available throughout mainland North Ayrshire and Arran, and the team is holding a number of recruitment information days in the coming weeks where you can find out more about the different roles available, learn about PPE and how it helps to keep our staff and service users safe, and hear about the many employee benefits available.

Staff will also be on hand to offer advice and guidance and assist you with filling in an application form.

Events will be held at the following venues and Covid-19 safety precautions will be in place:

Wednesday 1 September: Former Social Services office, 47 West Road, Low Green, Irvine, 9.30am to 4pm

Tuesday 7 September: Stevenston Day Care Centre, Largs, 9.30am to 4pm

A big thank you to the 278 people who took the time to complete our feedback survey about Connects. The information shared will help to inform how we design and build the new intranet.

We asked what people liked about Connects

good search engine

We asked what people disliked about Connects

There were recurring themes in the responses to this question too:

difficulties navigating the site
problems with the search engine
not being able to find things, like contact details or documents when not sure of its exact name
out of date information

We asked what people would like to see added to Connects?

We received lots of great suggestions for consideration with the most common being:

personalisation to allow the user to have most used items on display first
an up-to-date directory (names, job descriptions, responsibilities, team structure and contact details) allowing people to quickly and easily find the right person for the job/enquiry

What happens next?

We will identify ways that we can deliver an intranet that addresses the issues raised and adds value to the organisation. A key part of this will be re-examining the site’s navigation and structure. We will be running tests with colleagues and will be in touch with the 41% of you that said you’d be happy to help with testing.

“Like everyone, we faced unprecedented circumstances, however, our teaching and support staff used their skills, knowledge and experience to act, react and respond to the situation we found ourselves in.
