Not looking for a standard 9-to-5 job? No problem. Care Workers’ skills are vital for thousands of people to live their lives every single day, meaning the help they provide is needed 24/7.
The flexibility of shift patterns means that those working in care can fit their career around their commitments. So whether you’re a student trying to fit work around your studies, or a parent looking to earn alongside their childcare commitments, care work has got you covered.
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t always need to be fully qualified to find a job in the care industry.
Care Plus provide relevant on-the-job training to ensure that you have all the necessary skills in place to get started. There’s also the opportunity to continue professional development with further qualifications. So not only will you be fully trained and prepared for your position, you could get to add real qualifications to your CV.
One of the biggest benefits of working in care is diversity. You’ll constantly be introduced to new environments, meet new people and do different tasks as part of your day-to-day.
No gazing out of the office window wondering when home time will come, and no more boring working days all blurring into one. There really isn’t ever a quiet or dull moment in care.
Perhaps the most commonly talked about benefit of a career in care is how fulfilling it is. Every day, you’re helping someone in need and making their lives that little bit easier. And knowing that you make a difference to their day provides a real sense of achievement that’s difficult to experience in any other role.
Additionally, you’ll be building real relationships with clients, not to mention their family and friends. And that personal connection is what makes care work so unique.
Finally, many care roles come with impressive employee perks as part of the package. Aside from the aforementioned options for flexible working and continual professional development, common benefits of care work include financial remuneration (in the form of competitive salaries), pensions and holiday allowances.
