Mike used his experience of marketing and sales to secure a similar role in the social care sector.
From his mid-20s, Mike had always worked in direct sales. Although he enjoyed his various sales roles, Mike was keen to develop his wider sales and marketing skills. He hadn’t considered a career in the social care industry until it was recommended to him by a friend in the sector. At the time, Mike was considering his options and a possible career change, so decided to take up an initial role of care to get a taste of working in the industry.
Although the change of role and sector was a bit of a culture shock at the beginning, within a couple of months of joining the company, Mike was thoroughly enjoying his newfound role and wished he’d found it sooner.
