A Career in Social Care

Welcome to a Career in Social Care. This is a career that makes a positive difference to people's lives, offering a huge range of job opportunities from which to choose from.


The Northern Ireland Social Care Council has worked with Northern Ireland employers and people who use social care services to co-design and develop this resource. It has been funded by the Department of Health-NI (DoH). 

The resource includes a range of films/testimonials from social care workers/managers talking about their journey into social care and service users/carers explaining how they have been supported by social care workers. Subtitles are available for all films.

We are grateful to all involved who have helped the Social Care Council develop this digital resource.

If you need any help/support using this resource, please contact the Social Care Council.  Click here to provide feedback.
