Thinking of switching careers?

Working in adult social care, you will make a real difference to people's lives every day. Not only does a career in care provide you with a rewarding and flexible role, but at Optalis we encourage our staff to work in a proactive way and to use their initiative. We equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to empower you to make decisions and take actions to improve the lives of the people we support.

Your experiences and interests could be used to help someone flourish. Experience working in customer-facing roles can provide you with the skills you need to support people. If you can communicate and respond to people’s interests, needs and wishes you can become a support worker and enjoy job stability. Care is one of the fastest-growing industries with more people needing support every day.

Flexible hours make support work a great opportunity for students or people with young families.
