Virtual Meet the Expert - NHS - Healthcare Support Worker

Provided by My World of Work Live by Skills Development Scotland
The NHS can be a brilliant place to start or progress your career and being a healthcare support worker can give you the opportunity to learn new skills and work in a multidisciplinary team. There are different routes into this and it can be a gateway into different roles within the healthcare sector, that you will get to see first hand on the job! Being a healthcare support worker is a rewarding job and these roles are needed in all aspects of the hospital. They are an incredibly important part of the nursing team and if you want it to be, this can be a job for life. It is a fantastic way to learn from others and learn about different experiences throughout life. If you love working with people and like to be social then this is most definitely the job for you. Join this session to hear directly from our experts!

Johanna Goldie and Michael Wilson will both be joining us for this session to talk about their own experiences in this post and answer any questions you may have!
