Using video to recruit the right people

Tomos and Evan have been getting out and enjoying life so much that their manager decided to make a video compilation of all the exciting activities they have tried.

First, the two friends visited places they hadn’t been, by train, and enjoyed the great outdoors with a picnic. Next, the daredevils tried some more adrenaline fuelled activities, including surfing and speedboat rides!

 

The two friends were thrilled to see themselves on film, as were their families.

 

 

It was very emotional for everyone to see all that Evan and Tomos had achieved.

 

For staff it was a real tonic – a fantastic way to show them that all their hard work is so worthwhile.

No one would deny that the job of a support worker can sometimes be difficult – this video is a very clear reminder of the fact that, in spite of the challenges, the role is an incredibly fulfilling one.

This powerful video has now been made part of an advertising campaign to employ new staff for Evan and Tomos. Hopes are high that there will soon be new applicants for the role.

Supporting Evan and Tomos certainly looks like one long adventure !
