Why choose social care?

A career in social care offers rewarding, long-term employment prospects, with the opportunity for promotion and progression as well as job satisfaction and security.

Adult social care is one of the few sectors where jobs are increasing, offering significant numbers of long-term career opportunities in the current job market. There’s an estimated 28,000 social care jobs in mid and south Essex, across a range of different roles depending on what you want to do, who you want to work with and where you’d like to work.

Somewhere in your community there’s a job that you can do to help others. If you like working with people, social care offers a worthwhile job that can turn into a rewarding, long-term career.
