Proud to care
Havering is Proud to Care – Could you be too?
Start a career in care in Havering
We are all aware that Adult social care has become a fundamental part of our lives but were you also aware that it is also a significant economic contributor, adding an estimated £51.5 billion per annum to the economy in England in 2021/22.
Many people are unaware that social care has a bigger workforce than the NHS, construction, transport, or food and drink service industries (Skills for Care, 2022).
This means that now, more than ever, we need new recruits to join us locally and start a career in care.
If you are currently looking for a career where you’ll be able to make a real difference to people’s lives every single day, if you’re new to care or you’ve got years of experience – we need you!
To join us at the start of your journey here in Adult Social Care in Havering all you need are the right qualities, like good communication skills and a desire to help others rather than specific qualifications or experience.
You'll learn how to support people who need additional help to live independently.
You could learn to support someone in their own home or in a residential home.
And with on-the-job training and career development support to progress and gain formal qualifications whilst you work, your ambition is being cared for too.
