When it comes to care work, there certainly isn’t a shortage. A recent report published by Workforce Intelligence stated the number of adult social care jobs in England in 2018 was estimated at 1.6 million. Unfortunately, not enough of these positions are being filled and there is an outcry for more carers in the UK.
As it stands, the UK has one of the lowest ratings of job satisfaction in the world, which speaks for itself. Several reports and research have shown that people are wanting more work-life balance, flexibility and rewards. It is also clear that many of us Brits have a desire for a “meaningful” job.
A career in care can be both extremely rewarding and meaningful. Working in such an industry gives back to individuals, families, and society as a whole. Becoming a carer can really make a difference. If you are considering a change of job, then take a look at some of the reasons care could be for you.
Care work can provide flexible working patterns and shifts to suit your needs. Whether you are a mum returning to work or simply wish to have more work-life balance, care work can offer you the flexibility that you are seeking.

At Trinity, we can provide the training you need to become a carer.

We also have a fantastic relationship with Nescot College in Epsom. If you want to progress to a higher level in Health and Social Care, we will support you every step of the way.
Of course, the hours, the location and the career progression are great. But more often than not, people stay in the care industry because of how meaningful the work is. It really is a life-changing role that will alter your entire outlook on life. You will meet some incredible people along the way and will be able to go home, knowing that you are making a difference. This is something that many jobs cannot offer.
