The care industry is expanding rapidly as our population ages and requires more support. This presents exciting opportunities for meaningful and rewarding careers. However, the care sector often suffers from negative perceptions and faces challenges in recruiting and retaining staff.

This panel discussion aims to highlight the vast potential for dynamic careers within the care sector. Our expert speakers will explore the current state of the industry and how roles in care and community support services offer endlessly diverse job possibilities. Panellists will discuss the immense satisfaction from making a difference in people's lives, as well as opportunities for advancement into supervision, training, and leadership roles.

Ultimately, this panel seeks to showcase the array of fulfilling career journeys available within the care sector and highlight how working in care is not just a job, but a lifelong opportunity to learn, develop, and make a difference while achieving personal and professional success.
