This initiative is designed to support those wanting to learn about the sector, get flexible or full-time work within Kent. Be part of the social care revolution.

There are 3 ways to get your career in social moving.

I want to learn

The beauty of social care is that noexperience is necessary. A good carer first and foremost needs to have a desire to help people. Clients may be very anxious, or even aggressive, so it’s important to have patience and strong communication skills. A good sense of humour and a kind, friendly nature will also take you far. This will help you build a sense of trust with your client and those who are close to them. 

If this sounds like you, then you should definitely consider becoming a carer. The great news is that you can start the role without any formal qualifications such as GCSEs, A-Levels or a degree. That being said, it’s always a help to have official qualifications. These courses teach you how to support people who have learning difficulties and older adults with dementia.  

Organisations are here to help you learn,  both through qualifications and on the job training.. If you’re ready for a rewarding career in social care, learn more today.

I want to be flexible

One of the benefits of working in social care is the opportunity for you to become your own boss, and work flexibly as bank, or temporary staff. By booking your own shifts, you can set your own schedule and take control of your financial and professional life. Work when you want, where you want, and broaden your professional experience. And with our partner Florence Flex, it's managed in one single, easy to use app! Take control of your schedule today.
