In Wiltshire, we currently employ approximately 13000 staff within the Adult Social Care sector alone. Of these staff, approximately 9300 are involved in the direct care provision, working to provide care to customers on the front line within care home or supported living settings, in the customer’s own home or within a day care setting.
Care roles can enable both the employer and the individual to have some flexibility about when they work. Over half of the roles are full time, with the rest being made up of part time and zero hours or bank contracts. There truly is a role to suit everyone within the care setting.
We have a huge variety of opportunities in care – for people who want to work shifts, for those who do not; for those who don’t mind travelling as part of their role (and have their own transport)and those who wish to work in one location. We have caring jobs in care homes, people’s homes, hospitals big and small, GP practices, hospices, working in a community team or working with one individual;
Much of our workforce has been in their organisation quite some time, indicating they are happy and fulfilled: many have progressed in their careers. Others have been able to move around from different organisations to find one that matches what they are looking for in a job. With the many health and care establishments across Wiltshire there are likely to be caring job opportunities not far from where you live – enabling you to contribute to the community you live in.
