We have recently teamed up with the City and County Healthcare Group to provide a Connect & Collect scheme to all our staff.
All current staff and future employees will receive a discount and reward card, which will give them access to great discounts with major retailers including Marks & Spencer, Tesco, Boots and Argos. Staff will be able to order instant shopping vouchers and reloadable cards as well as receive discounts with every purchase they make.
The scheme also offers other benefits such as childcare vouchers and a Cycle to Work scheme, which people can join. By signing up our staff will be able to save money on everything from groceries to holidays, accessing great deals from a computer, smartphone or tablet.
We also offer a Refer a Friend scheme, current staff members can recommend a friend and if that friends joins the team and works 100 care hours over a period of 12 weeks, they’ll receive £150.
Working in care can be extremely rewarding and fulfilling. It can become a vocation in life and we offer all staff who show commitment, reliability and true passion opportunities for internal advancement.
Not only can you carve yourself out a career in the industry, but caring for service users and providing the care they need in return for praise and thanks from them and their family can be one of the best feelings and gives real job satisfaction.
