Working in social care is incredibly rewarding, but it’s not for everyone.

Take our short quiz to find out whether you’re suited to life as a carer.

  • Patience

    Many of our service users need help with day-to-day activities like shopping, cooking and personal wellbeing. Our carers are there to help them manage these activities whilst teaching them the skills they need to live independently.

    Question

    How would you feel about helping someone improve their life skills?

  • Support

    Young people and adults with mental health conditions or learning disabilities often need support with medical appointments, housing options and claiming benefits. Part of a carer’s role is to advocate on their behalf to ensure they get the medical and financial support they’re entitled to.

    Caring for people with complex needs often requires you to make decisions and act quickly and professionally.

    Question

    Would you say you’re a quick thinker in challenging situations?

    As a carer, your role will sometimes involve staying overnight or working flexible hours to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the person you’re caring for.

    Question

    Are you able to be flexible with your working hours and adapt to the changing needs of the service user?

  • Fitness

    Caring for people with complex needs can be great fun, and we get involved with as many physical activities as we can.

    Question

    Are you a hands-on person who likes to get active and enjoy the outdoors?

  • Adaptability

    It’s important that all our service users are looked after in a consistent and professional way in accordance with their personalised care plan even when their behaviour is challenging.

    Question

    Do you have the attention to detail and professionalism needed to ensure the rules are followed, even in a difficult environment?
