Why work in healthcare?
You are considering working in healthcare but are not entirely sure it is for you. This is a very common concern for those who are still wondering whether this sector would be a sensible career choice for them.
We asked our workers why they choose to work in such a demanding role -
- Training was great fun, I learnt so much, the staff were great and supported me throughout the training and onto my shadow shift. The pleasure I get from supporting clients who would otherwise struggle, or may not be able to do something themselves makes it a very rewarding job for me.
- Working at Nurseplus has enabled me to choose what hours are suitable for me and continue to be at home during the hours when my child needs me most.
- Since joining Nurseplus as a Healthcare Assistant I have gained more experience, met wonderful new people and always get the hours I need. Excellent agency to work for.
This is what we think at 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 Nurseplus 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 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, cash incentive referral schemes and competitive rates of pay.
