Job opportunities working in the health & care sector

Many people think that working in the health & care sector is all about providing personal care. That isn't the case. Although there are lots of job opportunities providing personal care, there's lots of different roles in the sector that may be right for you.

For example, you may enjoy working with adults or young people with learning or sensory impairments, or perhaps you would prefer the role of activities co-ordinator, support or admin functions, teaching and learner support, ambulance assistant or maybe being a companion for someone who would like a bit of company.

We can help you progress towards the role that is best suited to you and help you gain a recognised qualification to help you with the skills you need to get into work.
