When people are looking for a job it seems that there are always jobs advertised for caring roles be it working for an agency or working in a care home. Many jobseekers discount these roles and decide that a role in the caring profession is not for them but are they making the right decision?

There are many advantages to working as a carer for instance career progression is good and usually appropriate and ongoing training is provided if the applicant does not have the relevant qualifications. The opportunity to work hours that fit in around family life may be possible especially if there are two parents in the household to share childcare.

Many people who work the caring industry remark on how rewarding it is as a career as they feel that they are making a difference to people’s lives. They often become friends with the people they care for and enjoy giving support to family members of the person they are caring for.

Caring roles are varied and can not only be caring for the elderly but also providing care and support for children and adults with special needs. This may involve assisting with shopping and other outings as well as more personal care.
