Providing a positive contribution to the community isn’t just about caring for vulnerable individuals it’s also about helping the local economy. Experience in care isn’t essential but the right attitude is, and Optimal Future is finding applicants from other sectors in crisis due to the pandemic are the perfect team mates.
One such success story is Personal Nursing Assistant Yasmin. A theatrical agent with 15 years in arts and entertainment industry, the pandemic catapulted Yasmin into unemployment as the theatres closed.
Yasmin says: “Taking the positive out this terrible situation for so many I looked at the situation as a blank canvas. I had always been intrigued but slightly scared of how to approach enquiring about a career in social care. I have always had a lot of admiration for nurses and carers so guess it was inevitable I’d find my way into this career somehow!
