Other supporting roles

There are lots of other roles in social care that provide rewarding careers and opportunities for development whatever your skills and interests may be. These include:

  • Administration
  • HR
  • Finance
  • Marketing
  • Education and training

In many cases your employer will offer training and learning opportunities to specialise in your chosen area. This could be through apprenticeships or other qualifications.

You may need certain skills or experience depending on your chosen career, particularly English and Maths. However, this will be different for each role and each employer so read the job adverts carefully to see what is most suitable for you. You will also need to show that you have the key values and behaviours to work in social care.
