Social Care

Our people who work in social care make a huge difference to people’s lives. The contribution they make to the health, safety and wellbeing of Ceredigion’s vulnerable children and adults is priceless.

If you wish to pursue a career in care we have plenty of opportunities for you, from working as a care assistant in one of our residential care homes to working in the community as a social worker. We also have opportunities in occupational therapy, mental health, social care management, social care commissioning and much more.

Wherever your aspirations lie you will find that our people bring a can-do approach to everything they do, aiming always to ensure that decisions are fully focused on supporting our communities and protecting the vulnerable.
