Five reasons why healthcare is a great career

If you’re passionate about helping people and making a difference in someone’s life, then working in care can be one of the most rewarding career choices. With more than 18 million people employed within the industry across the UK, here are just some of the reasons as to why you should consider joining the i-care team.

Demand | The healthcare industry is one of the fastest growing industries part due to the growing and ageing population brought on by the advances in medicine. The UK’s population alone is expected to hit 70 million in the next decade. This growing population means that there will continually be a demand for healthcare services with the likelihood of a stable job with plenty of room for further advancement.

Career Progression | There will always be room within the industry to develop and improve your skills. We understand how important career progression is and keep all our staff up to date with the latest technology, ensuring we are always able to provide the best care possible for our service users. Advancement within the company is something we actively encourage. All our employees receive training before they begin their employment with us and furthermore, regular ongoing training to make sure they are continually developing their skills.

Travel | No matter where you wish to travel in the world, the need for good, quality care will always be present. If you have the right experience and qualifications within the healthcare industry, then you can take them anywhere with you.

Job Satisfaction | There are few positions where you can truly touch the lives of others. Caring for service users allows you to nurture your desire to help others while earning a living. You can care for service users as they recover from being in hospital or assist families through more difficult times. Regardless of your role you will be helping people and have a positive effect on their lives.

Flexibility | One of the main benefits of working within the healthcare industry is the level of flexibility it can provide people with. There are shift patterns which can cater for all needs, even for those who want to work nights, for example. The flexibility of shift patterns can be particularly useful for people who have children and families but would still like to work.

Healthcare isn’t the right career choice for everyone, but if you’re passionate about making a positive difference to the lives of service users and are interested in developing your skill set within the care industry, then we’d love to hear from you. We provide full training but do ask that you have a full driving licence with access to your own vehicle as transporting service users may be part of your healthcare role at i-care.
