A career in health has always been a popular choice for young people and job seekers, with the NHS perceived as a great employer and working in the sector as offering rewarding and meaningful employment . However fewer people are aware of the size and range of opportunities available in Adult Social Care , and of how closely the sector is aligned to the NHS.  Jobs in social care vary from entry level caring roles, to creating activities and events, and managing a business, alongside the full range of support services such as IT, HR , communications and marketing. Social Care employers are often more flexible about entry requirements and hard workers progress quickly in a sector which is less bureaucratic and often more representative of the local community. There are routeways into nursing from health care assistant through an apprenticeship pathway and many of todays care home managers are qualified registered nurses. This event will support you to fully understand the opportunities and strengths of the integrated sector, so that you are confident in advising any clients interested in work in the health or caring professions.
