Healthcare support worker
If you’re compassionate, have a sense of fun and enjoy working with people you could be perfect for a career in social services and healthcare. There are many types of services across the community like care homes, care at home and housing support services. Most roles will involve supporting adults but you can support younger people too.
This work is about helping people to live well and achieve the things in life that really matter to them. You’ll go home each day knowing you made a difference.
My best words of advice are there is no need to worry about training as you’re given all the training you will need. Go into it with an open mind and never look back.Blair Social care assistant
