New Year, New Career!

Are you a kind, caring and passionate individual?

If so, then a career in care might just be for you!

Are you looking for better career prospects, professional growth and work opportunities. Do you want a change in career direction. Are you looking for new challenges at work?

Starting a new career always seem much more possible in January, New Year is a time to make changes, explore new avenues and do good.

Sometimes a career change is necessary to accommodate the changing needs of your family or other goals. Work flexibility is another important factor that influences career change.

Let today be the start of something new, and something for you!

Why become a carer?

Whether you are just about to leave school or you are looking to change your career, there are a number of very good reasons to become a carer. A genuine interest in the welfare of others can get you started on the social care ladder as a care assistant. Many people start off by caring for a sick relative or close family member. Others will start as volunteers. But the story doesn’t end there. Continue reading for more reasons to choose to become a carer.

You’ll be able to pursue your passion:

If you have a naturally caring personality and you are concerned about the welfare of others, you are likely to do well in a caring role. By choosing to work in social care you can pursue a career making a difference in people’s lives. This gives you a firm foundation for your future career.

You can enjoy meeting new people:

Caring allows you to meet new people in the area where you live. As well as meeting your new clients, you’ll be part of a larger team of carers and healthcare professionals you can get to know. If you want to get out and about more where you live, being a carer offers the ideal opportunity to become active in your community.

You’ll have a rewarding career:

Knowing that you are making the difference to someone’s life is the reward for being a good carer. You’ll enable individuals by supporting them. Helping your clients to maintain their independence is an extremely rewarding experience.

You can see the results of your hard work:

Being able to give your clients the support they need to live day-to-day allows you to see the results of your hard work. You’ll be confronted with the harsh realities of people struggling to overcome illness or disability. This allows you to appreciate the little things in life we all take for granted. Each day, you’ll leave work feeling satisfied you have done your best to help.

Caring offers flexible hours to fit in with your life:

As carers tend to work flexible hours you can fit in your career around other daily activities. This is an ideal job for those who have family commitments or study plans. Being flexible allows you to meet your clients’ expectations.
