The Brothers of Charity Services Ireland have announced a special recruitment initiative to deal with the COVID-19 crisis.
Entitled “One Year in One Week”, the initiative will see the intellectual disability service provider seek to recruit one years’ worth of new staff in one week to ensure that they can maintain appropriate staffing levels during the crisis.
Starting this Friday, the 20th, all 4,500 staff of the organisation and their families are being asked to ‘like, tag and share’ a link to their recruitment site on social media.
Additionally, it is hoped that people whose livelihoods are impacted by the crisis may be able to find work through this initiative.
No experience of working with people who have an intellectual disability is required although recognition of the dignity, humanity, individuality and equality of people supported by the Services is essential.
