Why do some people love their job and so many others seem to hate it? If you’re considering a career in social care this an important question. For one thing, you’re probably not short of choices as many care companies are recruiting.
People tend to like their jobs when their personal values are in tune with the values of their employer. If you’re considering care as a career it’s probably because you value things other than money.
Altogether Care is a family run business that has been running homes and delivering services for over 30 years. We started a care business because we have a strong sense of how care should be delivered, with the people who use the service at the centre of all decisions. That is still the principle that drives us. Trust, respect, positivity, compassion and safety are our core values. These values reflect the way we treat our clients and the way we treat each other.
People who are happy in their jobs tend to feel a sense of belonging. They also like the people they work with. This is a big part of the experience at Altogether Care. We try hard to make it feel like one big family. People enjoy working for us.
As well as a supportive working environment and help to develop your skills and career, Altogether Care staff enjoy a range of additional benefits. These include:
- Child care vouchers
- Discounted holidays and travel insurance
- Various leisure and restaurant vouchers
- A hospital plan
- Blue Light Card – a discount card exclusively for armed forces, emergency, NHS and care staff.
Altogether Care is also a government-accredited organisation licensed as a sponsoring employer for overseas professionals seeking to work in the UK.
