Health and social care is a vital sector within the UK and employees are in high demand — there are over 350 career options within the NHS alone, so you can expect to find many opportunities as a graduate.

The healthcare sector broadly speaking incorporates organisations that provide medical support to patients by helping with the prevention and treatment of illness and ensuring the preservation of physical and mental wellbeing. Social care is about working with individuals who are in need of support i.e. due to illness, disability or age. This involves providing practical assistance and emotional support.

Employees work at all different levels and in all different capacities, from the highly specialised medical professionals to behind-the-scenes clerical and support staff.

Graduates who intend to become doctors, social workers, surgeons, nurses, dentists or psychiatrists have probably followed a meticulously planned career path from the early days of A-levels. But what about the graduates who have started to consider a health and social care career further down the line? How can you break into this demanding yet rewarding sector?
