Staff Benefits

Join our caring and committed staff at St Elizabeth’s Centre and experience working with others who share our compassion and enthusiasm for caring for vulnerable people.  We value our staff who work exceptionally in supporting all our residents, students and learners to live and learn as independently as possible.  In return, we offer excellent benefits, including:

  • Well-being – We want our teams to take well-being seriously so flexible working, counselling, generous annual leave entitlements, eye-tests and our employee assistance programme ensure that we support you in all the right ways. All of our employees receive a generous annual leave entitlement, plus 8 days bank holidays.  In some roles you receive additional leave after 3 and 5 years’ service.  Employees can also ‘buy or ‘sell’ annual leave (up to 5 days).
  • Recommend a Friend Scheme, where you can earn an extra £150.00 - you will receive an initial payment of £25.00, with a further £125.00 once they successfully complete their probationary period. We value your recommendations, and if you know someone who shares our values and commitment get them to contact us, and if appointed on a permanent basis you will receive this extra cash.
  • **Recommend a Friend Scheme uplift to £1000 for Care & Support staff, Nurses and Night Care Assistants!**
  • Safeguarding is at the heart of all we do – so as you would expect, DBS checks are carried out and paid for by us, at no cost to you. We also ensure regular checks are carried out across the Centre.
