Do you want to find out more about the range of roles available to in the care sector. Working in social care is about providing personal and practical support to help people live their lives. Social care roles can be in a care or nursing homes, councils, schools, charities and small community based organisations.

The purpose of the broadcast will be to raise awareness of some of the roles which you would not have heard of or associated with social care. The social care sector is a growing employment sector with hundreds of employers. The number of jobs in care are increasing with lots of job vacancies and many different roles to choose from. In the video you will meet Angela from Enabled Living Healthcare Ltd who trained as an Occupational Therapist later on in her life and Francis Andohdarbah, a qualified social worker working in Adult Social Care in Newham. They will introduce you to Adam who has care needs and how in their role they can support him. Angela and Francis will also introduce you to other roles which you may not have thought about but are also just as important.

  • Angela Skrabania

    Occupational Therapist

    My name is Angela and I’m an Occupational Therapist.

    I studied to be an Occupational Therapist when I was in my 30’s, prior to that I worked in various jobs, mainly in administration and office management. I retrained because I wanted to use my skills to support people in a really meaningful way, that would also give me a sense of fulfilment. The reason I chose Occupational Therapy was because it is a very practical role using problem solving skills, whilst working in partnership with service users. Also you can work as an Occupational Therapist in lots of different specialisms from mental health, rehabilitation, physical health, children the list goes on and on.

    During my career, as an Occupational Therapist, I have worked the majority of time for a Local Authority as frontline worker, then as advisor and trainer and now I am a team manager.

    Outside of work I enjoy enjoying myself, dancing, clubbing, cooking, DIY, crafts and getting out in nature.

  • Francis Andohdarbah

    Social Worker

    Hi my name is Francis and I’m a social worker working in Adult Social Care. I have been a qualified social worker for six years. I decided to change careers in my late twenties and before social work I had got my first degree in bio chemistry.  I worked in the health sector for a while but didn’t really enjoy it as much as I thought I would. I started volunteering in homeless hostels and found I preferred working with people. I saw the difference I was able to make in people’s lives and decided to enrol on to a social work degree programme. Once qualified I worked in children’s social care and after moving to London I decided to move in to Adult social care.
