At the beginning you will receive a detailed & thorough induction programme, during which you will be shown how to do your job by experienced staff who have experience and can guide you to gain a clear understanding of how we provide effective support.
It doesn’t stop there.
We have an in house training team who provide mandatory and regulatory training and then a full range of skill specific additional training opportunities tailored to meet Coverage Care requirements.
You will receive timely support from your supervisor who will discuss your development, not just your training but how you are developing “on the job” too. You will be encouraged to be actively involved in your development and understand your career options.
If you are someone that likes the idea of extending your responsibilities and would like to become a leader there are lots of opportunities and support to do this. We have leader development programmes and lots of helpful training modules developed to enhance your leadership skills such as supervision, disciplinary, grievance, appraisal, interview techniques to name but a few.
Leadership and promotion is not for everyone and we acknowledge that employees who continue to deliver excellent care are the backbone of our organisation so we are keen to support these individuals to update their skills and promote new techniques to enhance our services.
We offer a competitive employee benefits package, see additional Employee Benefits page.
In addition to in-house support within the homes, we also offer employees additional support:
We like to think that if you have a problem with your employment we have people who can help you resolve it, if resolution is not found in home then we have a HR team who can advise and resolve issues fairly. HR Clinics are run in each home in addition to a daily (Monday-Friday) HR Support phone line, we believe that unhappy employees are not effective and encourage employees to talk to us so that we are aware and can find a resolution.
We also offer all employees' access to an Employee Assistance Programme, provided by Sovereign Health Care. Full details of what this support package includes are on the Employee Benefits Handout.
