There are a great many people that may think to themselves, “I could be a carer”, “I love to help others”, but if they haven’t had experience, feel that a job in care isn’t something they could even apply for.
For others, a job in care maybe something they have done since leaving education and realised this is the job for them and would never consider any other line of work. Or there are those who have always known they want to be a carer.
Do jobs in care offer people opportunities and progression? At Care Visions at Home we think the answer is yes, we offer real chances for those who want to work in care to progress and gain qualifications. We have some amazing examples here at Care Visions at Home. You can view some of these inspirational stories in more detail on the Care Visions at Home Facebook page.
Jobs in care are a vocation. Its hard work, but rewarding and to be a truly excellent carer, you must genuinely love the work and have a passion for people.
We have Gillian, Natalie and Cheryl all of whom are Case Managers who commenced with us as Care Assistants out in the community. All three came from different back grounds, a career that commenced in Residential Care as a Domestic, looking after family members and hospitality. Gillian, Cheryl and Natalie are being supported by Care Visions at Home to complete their NVQ’s Levels 5 & 4 in Health and Social Care. All are a testament that care can be a genuine opportunity to forge a career in a sector that can really make a difference to people’s lives.
We also have Branch Support Assistants, Peter, Maz, Deborah and Paul, all of which also commenced with Care Visions at Home as Care Assistants. As Branch Support they are given extra responsibilities outside of their community work and are currently studying towards further qualifications in Health & Social Care.
