Social Media

We routinely promote the latest jobs and Proud to Care news across our social media channels. If you haven’t already, we invite you to like and follow our Facebook and Twitter pages.

One of the things that determines how many people see our posts on Facebook, is how many people interact with the post when we first share it. Facebook also prioritises posts in the News Feed where there’s interaction between people in the comments. With that in mind, it would be great if you could turn on the notifications for our pages and engage with, comment on and share the content as we post it.

Here’s how to turn on notifications for FB and the same information for Twitter.
