When you work in Health and Care, you don't just go home with a wage, you know your work is helping others and making our society a better place.

It is important to have good people skills, be able to listen effectively and talk to people to find out what help they need.

You will need to plan and organise your own tasks and work with others, including colleagues, people from other organisations such as the NHS, clients and their families.

It is important that we care for the disabled and elderly people in our community, and you can find roles which support them in their own home or in a setting such as a care homes or hospices.
