The next episode of Beltin’s Working In Wigan podcast is out! Vicky speaks to Val Hogan from Verve Recruitment CIC.
Val, from Lowton, has a passion for helping children find the right foster carers – and she set up her CIC to recruit more suitable people into foster care roles.
And the range of people who become foster carers is huge – Val encourages lots of people from all walks of life to explore existing skills which could make them a brilliant option for young people in need of nurture and advice.
In this episode, Val talks about her background in sales, the difference between independent and not-for-profit foster care recruiters and the challenges faced by local authorities when it comes to recruitment.
The Working In Wigan podcast will continue to feature people who are passionate about their roles in the town.
