Try something new through social care
We know that many young people are thinking about what they're going to do next, especially during National Careers Week. Why not try social care? Read about Lee’s experience of what it’s like to do something that makes a difference.
“I started at NCHA as a support worker. This allowed me to get quite a bit of experience, before becoming an Assistant Rota Coordinator for our Personalised Support team.
“I started in social care, because I feel in love with the idea of helping people. Previously, I’d always worked in warehouses or did bar or postman work. However, I wanted to try something new after a recommendation from a friend.
“Now I help to make sure people get the care they need when they need it. I’ve been doing this for two years now and I like it, you feel like you’re making a change. I really value my time as a support worker as it helped me to develop a foundation for my current role.
“I also got lots of training opportunities, including training in medication, personal behavioural support and different support needs.
“My job is rewarding, my colleagues are friendly and NCHA’s a great company with good morals."
