The roles available for people working in the care sector are vast.
Most day-to-day roles involve performing the tasks sometimes carried out by a close friend or relative but in a trained, professional and knowledgeable way. Senior roles involve managing operational teams.
Who can I work for?
Roles in care can involve working with many different groups of vulnerable people, from the elderly and disabled to young children.
People interested in working in the care sector could consider care homes, hospitals or even schools or nurseries.
Where and when can I work?
Care roles are available across the UK. Working hours will vary depending on the role and sector but many care roles will involve shift work. People needing care may often require 24-hour support, so you may need to be flexible and expect to work unsociable hours.
What attributes are needed?
Workers in the care sector must be aware of the needs of the customer and work to the highest standards every day to ensure people within their care retain their dignity and remain safe.
Being a good team player and communicator are also essential attributes.
Keeping up-to-date with training and the latest news, views and legalities of your care sector are also important so you must have a genuine interest in working within care.
