Superheroes deserve super rates! If you are looking for a meaningful and rewarding career, then you may want to consider a role in care. In this piece OSJCT explore the benefits of a career in their care homes.

Social care is a fulfilling profession which provides a vital service to some of the most vulnerable adults in the community. The Trust has already prioritised a number of measures to support and reward our colleagues, and we are delighted to confirm that we will pay the current real Living Wage from 1 April 2022.

Benefits of working in an OSJCT care home

We pay the real Living Wage

We are committed to recognising and rewarding all of our colleagues. All employees are paid £9.90 or above, and all care colleagues are paid over £10 an hour. We also offer pay enhancements, service-related annual leave, competitive pension schemes and a retail discount scheme.

Do something meaningful and rewarding

Our residents are at the heart of everything we do, and our teams take great satisfaction from making their lives that little bit easier. Knowing that you make a difference to their day provides a real sense of achievement that’s difficult to experience in any other role.
