This gives the possibility of working across a number of different roles in your time with the organisation, building your skillset and allowing you to find the role that is the best fit for you.
Care roles can offer flexibility around your other commitments and more and more providers are offering flexible shifts to support their workforce. If you can’t commit to advertised shift patterns, don’t be afraid to speak to the care company about what you can bring to the role if they’re able to consider an alternative option.
NEWSFLASH! A lot of care roles do not require any qualifications at all and staff is given lots of training on the job. A number of qualifications are also offered in many roles, allowing you to obtain NVQs and other credentials. A lot of these skills are transferrable to other roles as well as allowing you to develop your care career.
Working in care is one of the most rewarding jobs in the world. If giving something back is important to you, working in care and supporting people to live their best lives is a great way to do that.
So there we go. We’ve tempted you right? Now why not check out care vacancies
