Why Should You Work in Care?

Work flexibly

Shift work and part-time hours are very common in the social care sector.

You can fit your career around your life and the things that are important to you. It's perfect for students, family life or retirement.


Every day is different

Social Care is really diverse, everybody needs different support.

You can support with daily living right through to holidays! It is also sociable - you will meet new people and visit new places. This can be challenging but rewarding - you need to be patient, empathetic and prepared to learn new skills.

Earn whilst you learn

You'll get training and qualifications to develop the skills you need to change people's lives.

Many careers in social care don't need you to already have qualifications, just the right personality - you'll learn everything you need to through training, qualifications and experience once you're working, so you can change people's lives and progress your career.


What do employers look for?

To work in adult social care, your personality and values are so important.

When applying for a job in social care, think about examples that show you are:

  • Sensitive
  • Patient
