Be The Reason - Find Out How to Start Your Career in Care


Could you or someone you know be the reason others are able to feel safe and cared for?

Providing care and support to older or vulnerable adults can be a hugely rewarding career, knowing that you are making a difference to people's lives every day.

Care providers are one of the largest groups of employers in Essex, and have a diverse range of roles available. This can range from residential and home care to support for people with learning disabilities or mental health issues. More than 450 care and support jobs are advertised every month, including full-time, part-time, and flexible roles that can fit around other commitments. 

Your free local events
