Taking care of your summer

Are you a student in full time education looking for work opportunities during your holidays? Or are you looking for fulfilling part time employment that can fit around your studies once term begins?  If this sounds like you, then perhaps you should consider working in the care sector.

There are numerous opportunities for full time and part time work in the social care sector.  This can be on a temporary or permanent basis. At the moment, nearly 1.5 million people are employed in the UK’s social care sector. Over the next ten years it is estimated another 500,000 jobs will be created. As well as helping look after our ageing population, there is also a great need for care workers to support children, young people and adults who need assistance with their day-to-day living. Flexible shift patterns associated with care can often mean that a caring role is an ideal one to fit around student life.

It’s not necessarily essential to have qualifications.  The right professional attitude, compassion and a positive approach are the most important attributes. Funded training can be available too.  This means you can boost your CV while you earn.

Many young people who have undertaken a caring role as a part time worker come to realise that they have found their true vocation. Luckily a host of opportunities awaits, whether a candidate is a graduate, a school leaver, or an older person looking for a change of career direction.
