2020 was an unprecedented year with widespread redundancies facing a lot of sectors such as hospitality and travel. It was also a year that saw care thrown into the media spotlight. If you are considering a change in career whether due to redundancy, or just feel like you would like to try something different it is most certainly time to consider a role in care (don’t take our word for it – check out some of the stories on our Employer’s profiles). You may be surprised to find you have just the qualities needed for a role in care. Not only is it an exceptionally rewarding job it also offers many possibilities for career progression that are sometimes overlooked.
Many roles available in the care sector– particularly frontline caring jobs do not require previous experience. The important thing is having the right qualities and values that will make you right for a care role. If you have been caring for loved ones or are simply looking for a job where you can make a real difference then caring could be for you.
It has been scientifically researched that there are 7 main qualities needed to be a successful carer and those are:
2. Compassion & Empathy
5. Inclusivity & Respect
6. Adaptability and resilience
7. Procedural compliance
Caring is a challenging role that requires a number of skills and an ability to prioritise and juggle tasks. It is also one of the most rewarding and important roles there is, as we have seen in the last 12 months more than ever. If Do you recognise the above qualities in yourself? Well then why not consider a career in care or support worker job this year.
