Hannah Winterman, February 19, 2018

With January over and the days slowly getting longer, it's the perfect time to think about your next role.

Are you looking for a fresh career move but don't know where to start?

Do you want a role where you can make a difference but feel you lack experience?

Cambridgeshire Social Care have the perfect opportunity for you.

Cambridgeshire County Council are currently seeking Support Workers to help vulnerable people across the region. As a specially trained carer, you'll provide care that transforms the lives of those in need.

So what do you need to apply?

You don't necessarily need any social care qualifications. What's really important is that you have the right values and behaviours to work in social care.

Perhaps you're thinking about a career change, but think care work will be too challenging? Or you've always wanted to start a career in care but don't know where to start? With great support and comprehensive training, Cambridgeshire Social Care will help you every step of the way. You'll receive everything you need to become a qualified Support Worker - all you need is the drive to succeed.

Alternatively, you may already be working in the care industry, have qualifications in health and social care, and are now looking for a new and refreshing career. This role offers you that chance.

About You

Personality wise, you'll be a team player with a positive attitude. Great communication skills will allow you to build strong relationships in your own work and with colleagues. You'll be the type of person who enjoys helping others and craves a role where your work will have real worth and impact.

Your Responsibilities

From helping with washing and dressing, to helping residents stay mobile, you'll provide great care for service users across the county. You'll be trained to use a range of equipment, to ease the day to day challenges service users may face. Reporting back to colleagues and managers, you'll keep communication clear and always put the needs of service users first.
