We are offering the following exciting opportunities to energetic, enthusiastic and caring people to join our dynamic, professional team of staff, enabling older people to make more of life.
An acknowledgement for receipt of application forms will not be issued unless the application is received via email.
We operate a strict short-listing process, which is based upon information completed in the application form. Therefore, it is vital that applicants ensure they complete all sections of the application form.
If your application is acceptable for the next stage of the recruitment process you will hear from us within 2 weeks. If you do not hear from us, please assume your application was unsuccessful.
The short-listing process takes place every 2/3 weeks. If an applicant is successful, they will be invited to attend an interview. Unfortunately it is not possible to contact those applicants who have been unsuccessful. However, those who are invited to interview and are subsequently found to be unsuccessful, we will contact you to provide feedback.
All successful applicants are required to attend a two week paid induction programme at the start of their employment.

The gender pay gap
The gender pay gap is the difference in the average hourly wage of all men and women across a workforce. If women do more of the less well paid jobs within an organisation than men, the gender pay gap is usually bigger.
Our latest report found that, in our organisation, women earn £1 for every £1 that men earn when comparing median hourly pay. Women's median hourly pay is 0% lower than men’s.
We are proud to be part of Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust’s Time to Test campaign. We ensure that everyone in our team has the time they need to attend cervical screening appointments in working hours. Cervical screening saves lives and work should not make it harder to look after your health.
