Careers in care

As well as a variety of different service areas adult social care also has a number of career opportunities and pathways. Each role involves specific skills and knowledge but all have one vital factor in common; you get to make a difference every day. Take a look at some of the careers available below:


Start your career in care

These positions do not always require previous experience or qualifications. Relevant training and support will often be provided by your employer to support your development and start your career journey in care.

Care and Support Worker

As a Care and Support Worker, no two days are the same. Your role will be to deliver care and support plans whilst continuing to encourage people to remain independent and in control of their own well-being. Working as part of a team, you will work under clear instructions and guidance from senior colleagues. The positive impact you can make to the lives of others is invaluable. It will make a difference to your day because you’re making a difference to theirs.

Rehabilitation/ Reablement Worker

Rehabilitation plays a major part in reshaping the future of care and support - helping people to live longer, healthier and more independent lives. It differs from the traditional residential care associated with care work. Supporting people to do things for themselves again, by maintaining and improving independence enabling more fulfilled lives in their own homes. This is an extremely rewarding role where you can realise the impact of the great work you do on a daily basis.
