I have no clue what to do. I really need to get a job as a healthcare assistant. Unfortuanately to get a job as a healthcare assistant you need 6 months experience of being one. I applied to be a NHSP care support worker. It all seemed well until they asked for experience which I can't provide.

what do I do ???

The NHS I believe receives up to 100 applications per HCA job advert, making it very competitive.

What’s your work experience to date?

Look into HCA/Support worker roles in the private sector in care homes, agencies, charities etc. Google HCA or support worker jobs in the area you’re looking to work. Some jobs state no experience is needed as they will train you.

Alternatively look into voluntary work if you still struggle securing a job, and build upon your experience until you get paid work. I know it can be tricky to get your foot in the door. Best of luck.
