“We have many older people in our borough who rely on assistance and care provided by local council services. These residents’ quality of life depends on the expertise, professionalism and dedication of our wide care workforce. Richmond is a beautiful borough with a strong community ethos and I am delighted to welcome anyone wishing to work with us to the Recruitment Fair, to find out how they can make a difference to our residents’ lives.”
