Care for others and make a difference

Social Care posterThe coronavirus pandemic has changed the way we view the world and in particular the way we view certain jobs. In the past it had been easy to miss the important role key workers play in our society but over the past two months we have realised just how vital their work is to our everyday lives.

The Department for Health and Social Care is currently recruiting nationwide for people who would like to make a difference to the lives of others everyday by starting a career in Adult Social Care.

All you need to start working in adult social care are the right values, but if you want to build your skills into a career, adult social care offers plenty of opportunities for progression.

While every role requires core life skills like teamwork and problem solving, it's your values, behaviour and attitude that will set you apart. So if you're the sort of person who treats others with respect, listens to their needs, understands their emotions, and is warm, kind and honest, then adult social care could be the career for you.
