How much can I earn as a Social Care Worker?
Public sector salaries vary hugely, depending on the specific area and job role that you have. A social care worker, for example, will earn a very different salary to those working in Central Government. Here are the average salaries for each of the above jobs, including with a few years’ experience:
  • Civil servant: £23,000
  • Accountant: £36,493
  • Solicitor: £37,766
  • Charity officer: £25,000
  • Social worker: £27,732

  • Fire fighter: £28,487
  • Army officer: £48,528
  • Soldier: £27,534
  • Youth worker: £20,344
What qualifications do I need to be a Social Care Worker?
After a Bachelors Degree Many public sector organisations, for example the Civil Service, have structured graduate schemes, which last for around two years. To get a place on one of these schemes you will have to go through a process of application forms, interviews and – more than likely – cognitive tests. If you have studied a specific degree, such as nursing, you will be able to apply for jobs that are directly related to that area without having to take on further qualifications. As mentioned above, humanities degrees can qualify you for roles across a huge number of areas that require softer and less technical skills.
What skills do I need to be a Social Care Worker?
With a wide range of jobs in this sector, people can match their skills to the job that best fits them. You'll almost always be dealing with the public, so good people skills and sensitivity to the needs and concerns of others is very important. Most jobs in the public sector require a basic level of computer skills, too.

Some of the skills that public sector recruiters might look for are:
  • Communication
  • Teamwork
  • Social skills
  • Research
  • Analytical skills
  • An ability to work under pressure
  • Presentation skills
What experience do I need to get a job in Public Sector?
The variety of jobs in this sector is huge, and for many – for example teaching – you will need to show your dedication by working with children or adult learners before you apply for job roles. Contact local schools, hospitals, council or other public-serving organisations and ask if you can spend some time volunteering or shadowing a member of staff.
