After a career as a sales engineer Nick Evagorou decided he needed a change and now uses his passion to help people as a support worker for people with learning difficulties.
He said: “I would say it’s a job where you get a huge amount of satisfaction, make a difference to people’s lives and one where there’s a range of opportunities for training and progression within your career.”
A special recruitment event arranged by West Sussex County Council is taking place in Worthing to encourage more people to think about working in care and the potential career opportunities.
People will have the opportunity to meet around 20 local care providers, find out about the roles available and even apply for jobs.
Part of a vital ongoing campaign to recruit more care workers across West Sussex, the event will take place on Wednesday 3 October from 10am – 2pm at The Assembly Hall, Stoke Abbott Road, Worthing, BN11 1HQ.
Amanda Jupp, Cabinet Member for Adults and Health, said: “Working in care is a hugely rewarding job which can offer great flexibility. Whilst most jobs require qualifications and experience, working in care is slightly different because what’s important is whether you’re a caring person who is reliable and has the commitment to help people get the very best out of every day. I would recommend anyone interested to come along to this event and find out about local opportunities and job vacancies.”
