Are You Looking For A Career In Personal Care ?

13 Sep 2022

It feels like a while since we last spoke to you about a rewarding and fulfilling career in personal care, although it was only back in February,  it feels as though a lot have changed. Since then, it seems like there there are more and more personal care jobs available.  

At Hands on Care, your quality purveyor of personal care in Telford and surrounding areas, we love to illustrate the benefits of a career in care industry. We offer a wide range of care jobs in Telford and many other locations. If you are interested in a career in the care industry, the chances are, we will have something to appeal to you. 

As such, we have decided to detail some of the many benefits of working in the care sector. 

Flexible Working Schedule 

If you currently work in a role where you are required to work the same, or very similar, shifts most of the time, you might be looking for a change. Much like work, your personal schedule can be very busy, hectic and diverse. This may require you to have a more flexible working schedule. 

One of the commonly cited benefits of working in a care role is the ability to have a flexible working schedule. Having a flexible schedule enables you to free up time you would normally find occupied by work and/or other commitments. It also allows you to ensure your days remain varied and diverse. 

Having a variety of shifts simply means that your days will automatically feel different from one another, ensuring you do not feel bored working the same patterns all of the time. 

A Variety of Roles Available

In care jobs, there are not just a variety of shift patterns available, there are also a variety of job roles. From managerial and supervisory to standard care assistant roles, there are a variety of roles available requiring a varying set of skills and experiences. 

The different roles can include, but are not limited to: full time, part time and completely flexible positions. 

A Range of Additional Benefits 

When working at a care home, you have a range of other benefits available. The benefits can include discounts at your favourite retail and online stores, as well as incredibly fun company events. 

The Ability To Meet New and Interesting People 

Sometimes, meeting new people can be difficult. Unless you are part of a social group and/or have a very large pool of friends and family, it can be hard to get out and meet new people. Luckily, with a career in the care sector, you can get out and meet new and interesting people on a daily basis.  

In a care job, not only will you meet new and interesting work colleagues, you will also get to meet some of our incredibly friendly clients. Along your journey with us, you will have more than enough opportunity to share stories and have fun together. We are very sure of that. We are also sure that many of the friendships and partnerships you establish will be long term and engaging.  

Ways To Better Yourself

Aside from the fact that you will be able to better yourself metaphorically by engaging with your emphatic side, you will also be able to practically better yourself by undertaking different training courses. 

Not only will the additional training courses help you to improve personally, the courses will usually help you with delivering even better quality of care to our clients. 

No Two Days Are Ever The Same

The last time we looked at why you should work in personal care, we mentioned how no two days are ever the same, and this still very much rings true. Doing the same thing, day in day and day out can seem very tedious and potentially boring. 

Luckily, having a unique and varied day is very much expected in a care job role. This ensures you also remain engaged and enthralled during your time working in care.
