What’s your idea of working in care? We’d love to share a glimpse of life at Salutem with you!
Firstly, let’s talk about the people we support. Mark is our Karaoke king, Matty can walk for miles any day of the week, and Leslie loves going to the beach.
Could you be the friend they need to help them live their best lives?
We’re Salutem and we are committed to making a positive impact on the lives of thousands of children and adults in England and Wales across our residential homes, schools and day centres.
Support Workers at Salutem support people like Mark, Matty and Leslie to overcome any personal challenges each day so they can achieve outstanding outcomes. Individuals in our Salutem family may have disabilities or require complex care, but that doesn’t stop them from having fun, laughing hard and loving life.
We’re really excited to recruit new team members to become part of our supportive family here at Birchwood, where our purpose built bungalows empower the individuals who live here to thrive and live their best lives.
Just like a family we want the best for each other and we’re here supporting staff and the individuals we support to have the best time and make memories for life. Succeeding in a support role here means getting out and about, having fun day to day, and making Birchwood a fantastic place to live.
The people we support have an abundance of talent, passion and skills. Mark, a resident of Birchwood enjoys meeting his friends face to face or via Zoom. He’s currently studying History of Arts and has even had his own paintings exhibited and sold. Mark’s amazing talent is clear to see from his wall of medals and trophies from his days playing Boccia.
If you could support people like Mark to live a life they love, please get in touch with our team and apply for a role today.
Birchwood is a vibrant and welcoming 14-bed residential care home in Chesham with three purpose-built, spacious bungalows, supporting adults with learning disabilities and physical disabilities. The service provides a safe and stimulating environment for all the individuals we support.
Each bungalow has a communal lounge and kitchen. Each individual has their own bedroom with en-suite bathroom and overhead hoist and tracking. There is also an independent flat consisting of its own lounge, kitchen bedroom and en-suite bathroom. There is a small garden area accessible to every person we support from their bedroom, as well as communal gardens around the site.
Birchwood is located close to the town centre with the shops just ten minutes away. There are also pubs and coffee shops just around the corner.
Each day will be different, and the main focus of your role is to provide daily support. It’s definitely not a normal 9-5, you can work days, nights, and flexible shifts too. Talking of 'dream’ jobs, some of our shifts are sleep-ins!
In regards to benefits, at Salutem, any day can be a payday. That’s right, you can withdraw up to 30% of your wages via Wagestream, so if you need some cash, we’ve got you covered.
As a keyworker in the Care sector, you’ll hold a valued role in society. You’ll qualify for discounts with a Blue Light card and we’re signed up to Perkbox which offers over 200 exclusive perks and discounts. If you qualify for a pension scheme and choose to opt in, we’ll support you to pay into this.
Inductions and training are a priority, and we’re committed to supporting you to find your feet when you join us. We’ll pay for any training you need to do your job. We also have an internal staff communications app, Blink, where everyone has a voice and can lean on each other for daily support, and celebrate success too.
For a more confidential chat you can access the Employee Support Helpline, to support you with any issues including financial advice, health and well-being and more.
We have a massive duty of care towards those we support who are often the most vulnerable in society, which is why our staff are encouraged to keep up to date with vaccines and focus on self-care too.
