Who cares – We all do

It takes a certain type of person to work in health and care. It’s not about qualifications and ticking boxes. It’s about what’s in your heart; what motivates you; what makes you feel good.

  • Dedicating your time to helping others live independently? That’s something special.
  • Dealing with concerns that most people couldn’t contemplate? That’s extraordinary.
  • Using your life experiences to help someone else? That’s caring.
  • It’s challenging. It’s unique. It’s rewarding. It’s incredible. It’s not for everyone. But is it for you?

Whether you are starting or changing your career you’ll find a wide range of career paths, including apprenticeships and graduate schemes. Care and support work is also very flexible and hours can often be fitted around study or family commitments.
