Why work in care

Why work in Care?

You are considering working in care but are not entirely sure it is for you. This is a very common concern for those who are still wondering whether the care sector would be a sensible career choice for them.

This is what we think of Nurseplus…

Firstly, the flexibility of shift patterns is very beneficial to those who may not want a standard 9 to 5 job. Care work is needed 24/7 and at Nurse Plus we can offer you the hours that fit around your commitments. Students, parents, carers and older people often find this very attractive as they can work around their studies, childcare commitments and personal lives.

What if I don’t have the right qualifications? We will provide you with all the training you need to ensure you are able to do a great job when you start. You will also have the opportunity to continue your development with further qualifications, enhancing your future career prospects.

The variety of care work means you are constantly introduced to new environments, people and tasks. No gazing out of the office window wondering when home time will come, there is never a quiet or dull moment in care.

Perhaps the most commonly talked about the benefit of a career in care is how rewarding it is. Helping someone in need and making a difference to their day will mean you go home with a real sense of achievement. Building relationships with your client and their family can be very fulfilling.

And let’s not forget the staff benefits of becoming a Nurseplus worker. We pride ourselves on being a friendly and adaptable employer and reward our staff with flexible working, continual professional development, an excellent training programme and a loyalty scheme.

So, if you are looking for a career change, enjoy helping others and want to be part of a growing team, contact your local branch today!
