Are you looking for a job role in the healthcare sector? Do you want to help people in your local community? Do you want to make a difference in people's lives? We’ve got hundreds of Social Care job vacancies available in the Stockport area.
If you love giving back to the community combined with a genuine desire to improve the quality of the lives of service users, social care might be the perfect job for you. The ability to think on your feet and make difficult decisions under pressure is essential for the job role and general administrative skills are also desired.
Social work is a great profession for promotions as you’ll likely take onboard more senior roles and less hands-on work. Three to five years after you become qualified it's possible to become a senior practitioner, team or care manager!
Your role as a Social worker will be to support individuals and their families through difficult times and ensure that vulnerable people, including children and adults, are safeguarded from harm. Your overall role and aims are to improve the outcome of people's lives.
You may be expected to maintain professional relationships and act as guides and advocates. Sometimes you’ll need to use your professional judgment to make tough decisions that might not always be well received by those they are trying to help.
As a result of the coronavirus outbreak, Stockport Jobs Match was set up as a crisis response tool to help connect local jobseekers with urgent front-line support and key worker jobs.
Recognising the need to help businesses stay operational – particularly within finance, volunteer and retail for example – we responded quickly and had an effective solution in place in less than 72 hours.
Stockport residents were then able to find out about priority recruitment needs and start work quickly to support the local community.
