Care jobs unfilled

The annual Skills for Care Workforce report is based on data provided by a representative sample of employers of England's 1.54 million care workers from which researchers calculate that employers were failing to fill 8% of posts before the pandemic.

That rate had fallen to below 6% by June 2020 - but by August this year the trend had reversed with 8.2% of care sector roles unfilled. This amounts to more than 100,000 posts with no-one to fill them, says Skills for Care.
