What is a Proud to Care Ambassador?

They are care and health professionals who work in a variety of roles including; care workers, registered managers, mental health nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, and many more. They use their own knowledge, passion and experience to encourage people to consider careers in care and health.

We currently have over 300 Proud to Care Ambassadors who attend careers events at schools, colleges, universities, job centres, employment fairs and apprenticeship events, to enthuse and inspire others to take up opportunities in the sector. As well as talking honestly and passionately about their own role, they are able to promote current job opportunities and signpost to career pathways in care and health.

If you would like to know more about Proud to Care Ambassadors, volunteer to become one, or invite a Proud to Care Ambassador to your upcoming event, please email proudtocare@devon.gov.uk.
