Values Based Recruitment

Welcome to the values based recruitment (VBR) toolkit. This toolkit has been developed by the Northern Ireland Social Care Council to support social care employers to recruit and retain people with the right attitudes and values.


Social care employers want to recruit and retain a workforce who are values based. This toolkit has been developed for social care employers to support them to use and embed a values-based approach to the recruitment and retention of their workforce. It includes a range of resources including animations and films.

The Social Care Council has worked with Northern Ireland employers and people who use social care services to co-design and develop this toolkit. We are grateful to all involved who have helped the Social Care Council develop and pilot this employer toolkit.
