Childcare, health and community
Do you feel rewarded when you care for others? Whether you want to work with the young or the old, across a variety of workplaces, there are so many great opportunities in the health and community sectors.
Healthcare is a diverse field across areas including aged care, child care, dentistry, disability or drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Your role could see you working in a residential setting, a hospital or a clinic. You might work in pathology or administer audiometry or optical tests. You might build a plan that helps someone get back to work, offer counselling to a client or manage a nursing team. Whatever role you decide to take on, if you're a good communicator it's a perfect career for you.
Working in childcare, health and community is full of challenges but there are great rewards and plenty of opportunities to work both full-time and part-time. No matter what role you decide on, you know you'll be making a positive difference in the lives of others.
