On 16 September 2019, Iriss attended the launch of the Scottish Social Services Council's (SSSC) Careers in Care website which was created to highlight the wide variety of career opportunities available in the sector.
The resource demonstrates how people can build a career working with children and young people, in social services and healthcare settings, or as a social worker.
We spoke to social services practitioners who shared their career stories for use on the website.
In this first episode of three, Greg and Elaine, two residential care managers tell us about their journeys into careers in care. Charlotte and Tasha, two young people supported at the residential home, also provide their views on what it takes to be a residential care worker.
