A career that will make a real difference to your and people’s lives!
The cost of living is on the continuing rise, inflation is soaring, and the UK is on the brink of recession. The hospitality industry is set to suffer the most, with lots of pubs, bars, restaurants, and hotels already announcing they will be closing down, due to the unexpected rise in prices. There has not been a better time to take your skills and start a new career in a stable and secure industry.
The health and social care sector are among the top 10 industry that hires the most in the UK. The NHS is the fifth largest employer in the world, with approximately 1.7 million workers across the UK, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. With the population of the UK expected to rise by almost 10 million in the next 25 years, the number of jobs available shows no signs of slowing down.
Is not just aspiring doctors and nurses that can make a difference. In fact, the health and social care industry hires a variety of different roles starting from housekeeping assistants, chefs, food and beverage, healthcare assistants, support workers, admin staff, and so on.
Regardless of your role in the industry, everything you will do will make a huge difference in people’s lives. You will come home from a day of work with a sense of pride and respect from the wider public.
If you are the type of person who likes new experiences every day, healthcare is filled with challenges to overcome, your role will have a meaningful purpose. However, unlike other industries, especially hospitality, where you are always in a hurry to meet the next customer’s needs, in healthcare you have the chance to spend and enjoy time with each individual.
There is a lot to like to work in health and social care but the fact that the role gives you security is something that most people will need, especially during the years ahead. Whether it’s full-time, part-time, or agency work, you will never struggle to find work with your particular skill set. Since health and social care are universal, you will have plenty of job opportunities in the UK and worldwide.
