Health, wellbeing and care workers
There has been a long-term shortage of qualified staff in the health and wellbeing sector and this isn’t going to change over time. With an aging population and an increased mental health needs in the community, developing a career in this industry could be a great long-term career decision.
Roles that will be particularly in demand include;

In short, if you think long term you could make a decision today that will help secure your career in the future.
