A career in care

A career for life

A job in care could be for you

A career in social care offers long-term employment prospects, with opportunity for promotion and progression as well as job security. 

Adult social care is one of the few sectors where jobs are increasing, offering significant numbers of long-term career opportunities in the current job market. There's an estimated 1.49 million people working in social care, and by 2035 we'll need to fill around 580,000 more jobs. 

Social care is about supporting people to maintain their independence, dignity and control. This includes providing personal and practical support to help people live their lives. For St Martins Care this takes place across our residential, nursing and learning disability care settings.
