If you’re currently unemployed and interested in a career in social care, there are lots of ways you can search and apply for job opportunities. You don’t necessarily need any qualifications or previous work experience, what’s important is your values and attitude towards working with people who need care and support.

So, when the time is right, Access Skills have a flexible and innovative delivery model designed to fit in with your work and personal circumstances. Our approach provides outstanding results, with achievement rates are some +20% above the sector average and our learners consistently feedback high levels of satisfaction.

Many organisations find their team by word of mouth. It is always worth making a list of local organisations and calling each of them. There may be opportunities to volunteer with them.

We offer a variety of e-learning courses that can be completed before you start your career in social care! More information can be found here.

If you have worked in the health and social care sector before and looking for new work opportunities, we suggest that you visit:

  • Indeed – search for job titles like ‘Care Assistant’ and ‘Support Worker’ in your local area.
  • LinkedIn – search for job titles like ‘Care Assistant’ and ‘Support Worker’ and connect with local care companies in your area.

Facebook and Twitter are great places to search for Care Assistant and Support Worker roles advertised in social media pages and groups set up to attract employment in the care sector.
