Healthcare and Social Care

The Health and Social Care sector contains pretty much any role you can think of, and loads of fun ones that you’ve probably never thought of!

In the Black Country we have 4 NHS trusts including Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust, Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust and The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust and The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust where roles can be found. A few examples of Health and social care companies in The black Country based on turnover and employment local to us would be ROSVENOR HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE LIMITED and EVACARE (UK) LIMITED.
There are over 350 different jobs within the NHS – so there really is something for everyone. Most of us have accessed some form of healthcare in our lives – the first time would have been the day we were born! If someone mentions healthcare, we mostly think of hospitals and key roles such as doctors and nurses. But there are hundreds of roles in this sector that don’t require a specific medical degree. This industry also looks after those in residential care, such as the elderly. If you work in social care, you could help people in their own homes, in residential homes or in a number of other places such as day centres or supported housing
£2.3bn Black Country GVA is attributed to this sector with around 65,000 jobs attributed to Health in the area
