Niche Jobs Ltd Privacy Policy

Socialcare.co.uk is a job advertising website run by Niche Jobs Ltd. Niche Jobs Ltd is not an employment agency and does not undertake such activities as would be consistent with acting as an agency.

This privacy policy applies only to this website. If you do not accept this privacy policy, you must not use the website. A user will have been deemed to have accepted our Privacy Policy when they register their details on the site, or set up a job alert emails.

We are committed to ensuring our user's privacy in accordance with the 1998 Data Protection Act, as well as ensuring a safe and secure user experience.

Personal (identifiable) information

When users submit identifiable* information to the website they are given the choice as to whether they wish their details to be visible to companies advertising on the website.

  • By selecting 'Allow companies to contact me about jobs', this means that a user's information, as it is entered on the website, may be viewed by companies who use our CV Search tool or watchdog function. At no point does Niche Jobs Ltd distribute a user's information to third parties beyond what we may be legally obligated to do.
  • By selecting 'I don't wish to be contacted about jobs by companies looking to hire', this means that a user's information will only be visible to a company advertising on the site if a user applies to a job being advertised by that company.

Whilst Niche Jobs Ltd makes every effort to restrict CV access to legitimate companies only, it cannot be held responsible for how CVs are used by third parties once they have been downloaded from our database.

  • Identifiable information is anything that is unique to a user (i.e. email addresses, telephone numbers and CV files).

Niche Jobs Ltd may from time to time send email-shots on behalf of third parties to users. Users can unsubscribe from mailshots using the unsubscribe link in the email or by contacting Niche Jobs Ltd via the Contact Us page on the website.

Technologise yourself and your service users! 5 apps for the care industry.

Technologise yourself and your service users! 5 apps for the care industry.

Check out our suggestions for apps to get you and your service users doing your best.

We know that not everyone has a smartphone (especially our service users) but for those of us who do, there’s a wealth of apps out there designed for both social care professionals and social services users. We’ve taken the 5 most useful-sounding and listed them for you – enjoy!

My, Myself and I

In 2012, Staffordshire Council developed My, Myself and I; a life planning iPad app that gamifies (you know, makes a game of) just what the individual wants for home, health, money, safety and life. Users are able to spin a wheel to access the categories and are then asked a series of questions to clarify what is most important to them.

Once they’ve completed it, the app will highlight any danger areas, provide advice on how best to deal with them and signpost them to relevant services.

To see the app tested across a day by a variety of happy users, check out this video. To learn more, including the methodology, findings of a research appraisal and further info on buying, go to www.mmi-game.co.uk.

iBenefits

This app is a (nearly) up-to-date compilation of every benefit and tax credit in the UK benefits system. The developer, IncomeMAX, released it to help people understand what they might be missing out on as well understand why they receive certain payments.

On top of the info, they’ve also compiled lists of helpful services, contact details and the benefits and tax credit rates for 2011/12. At the time of writing, it’s out for only £0.69 – you can get it here.

Social Worker Companion

Attention social workers! This one is for you. This app is designed for everyone in the social work industry; trainees, practitioners, those in academia and those that train up others. Through it, you can access the latest news regarding social work, practice references to advise you in many areas, a collection of the major legislations you’ll work under; a map-driven list of local resources (e.g. employment, charities, residential units); and social forums to connect with other social workers to get perspective or blow off a little steam.

It’s available here for Android, here for Apple and costs just £2.99!

Medical Guide To Culture

I think this one might be my favourite. The Medical Guide To Culture app has compiled useful cultural knowledge for all kinds of cultures, regions and backgrounds to stop you making an embarrassing faux pas or finding yourself paralysed with concern that you might do so. It covers all kind of areas – from obstetrics to end-of-life expectations – and would be ever so helpful for those who aren’t able to get to know people as they regularly work with a high turn-over of clients. This one is only available on the App Store and you can get it here for $0.99 (at the time of writing, equivalent to £0.62!).

M!ndi

A free ‘personal trainer’ for your phone and your well-being! This one is rather sweet and may be well-received by young adults and the young-at-heart. M!ndi (pronounced Mindi) is an auto-messaging app that aims to help people throughout their day by encouraging and supporting them to deal with their ‘internal hijackers’.

It’s based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)which encourages individuals to practice acceptance and mindfulness and take time to notice themselves. It also aims to help them accept their reactions and feelings and realise that they themselves are separate from said feelings.

M!ndi can be found at the App Store and is currently free. You can also download worksheets, information and access a list of free books and websites relevant to the area at www.friendswithmindi.com.
