Working at Abbeyfield
At Abbeyfield we want you not only to feel stimulated and challenged, but also to be rewarded for your hard work - and here's how:
- Competitive pay and holiday - We pay our directly employed staff the Living Wage and regularly check our salaries against other charities to make sure our pay is competitive. We also review your basic pay yearly, and all our staff get a minimum of 25 days holiday every year. We work this out pro rata for part-time staff.
- Training and career development - We invest in your career. We encourage you to aim high and reach your full potential through training and development programmes, and regular evaluations.
- Pension - Abbeyfield staff are welcome to take up or join our stakeholder pension plan to save for their own retirement.
- Care and Support - most of our staff work as care assistants, domestic support or managers. We tailor our services to meet the needs of individual residents, so your day-to-day work can vary enormously. The most important thing is that you're flexible and share our commitment to helping older people lead more fulfilling lives.
