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.
