Learning Disabilities recruitment agency listing

Working in the learning disabilities sector of social care calls for lots of dedication and a positive attitude, even when faced with challenging, difficult and sometimes stressful situations. Positions in the sector can vary from working as a learning disabilities nurse to being a support worker. It involves working not only within the community, but normally with a close knit team, as well as with vulnerable children and adults. Excellent people skills and communication skills are, therefore, paramount for any candidate searching for work in this sector.

For most carers working with those with learning disabilities, appropriate qualifications are necessary in obtaining a position. This does not necessarily have to be a degree or equivalent, although to become a learning disability nurse it is necessary to undertake a Nursing and Midwifery degree. NVQ Level 2 or above in social care is desired for a position as a support worker, for example, but some employers may be willing to take on a candidate who has yet to achieve a Level 2 but is willing to pursue it whilst on the job providing they also display the necessary inter - personal skills.

Employment in the sector can be found all across the country and due to the nature of the work involved, has largely proven to be recession-proof, meaning that although competition is steep there are plenty of opportunities to be had. Employers find it useful to search for candidates and advertise staff vacancies through specialist agencies. It is, therefore, useful for any job seekers looking for opportunities in the sector to utilise such recruitment agencies as well.
