Becoming an Activities Worker
This role is ideal for you if you’re good at motivating people and organising events, digitally competent and great with time management.
It may also help to have previous experience working with vulnerable adults but it’s not essential as long as you have the right values. Previous experience includes work placements/training courses, your personal life or time spent as a volunteer.
