Herts Good Care

Herts Good Care is a service delivered by Hertfordshire Care Providers Association (HCPA) and Hertfordshire County Council (HCC). We support over 500 adult social care employers to find the right individuals for their vacancies. All vacancies we have available are based in Hertfordshire.

We look for individuals with the right caring value and attitudes to vulnerable adults, who also have a willingness to learn how to provide high quality care and support. Our goal is to find the right career path for you and put you in contact with local employers.

Adult social care is the support provided to vulnerable adults who need extra care and support. Your job in care will be to support people to maintain their independence and dignity, which can include personal care and emotional support.

In Hertfordshire alone, there is a workforce of over 34,000 people working in adult sector, and each year we are looking to find around 4,000 more people to work in care.

This increased need is due to people living longer and living with more complex health conditions requiring additional care and support.

Why apply with Herts Good Care?

Our goal is to match you to the right job and employer. Once you apply, we will have an informal chat with you to find out what you are looking for and to discuss any potential opportunities. If interested, we will put your application forward to the employer/s and maintain contact with you and them throughout their recruitment process.

If you are unsure at this stage, register interest and one of the team will give you a call to answer any questions you may have.
