Working with us
It’s important for our people to always believe in better, love to learn, and be here for each other. Our top priority when recruiting is to find people who also aspire to these values.
If you have worked in a similar housing or care setting before, this is a bonus, but, depending on the role, it is not essential as we are keen to attract people from a wide variety of backgrounds and experience.
We have a track record of developing our own and have many examples of employees who have progressed their career, often across a number of departments, from joining Trust for their very first job.
We have a range of volunteering opportunities if you want to give something back to your community or broaden your own skills - find out more.
Our Blended Working Model gave us the opportunity to reimagine how we work, designed for a new blended and digital era of work, enabled by an ever-evolving generation of digital tools opening up possibilities.
We co-designed a blended working model for office colleagues that responds to new ways of working in the new normal, designed around the customer experience and through the lens of our customers. However, it also aims to balance employee well-being with business outcomes.
The model supports office colleagues, with suitable job roles, to work more flexibly in terms of when, where and how they do their work - in other words, empowered to be in the right place at the right time for our customers, the business and each other.
The default position for most office employees is 'Blended Workers' (a combination of working from home and in the office/out in the field with customer). However, we don't not leave anyone behind. We understand for some people working from home just doesn't work and we have a small number of office job roles that need to be office based.
Our offices have been re-imagined to support this new way of working. In this new world, no one has their own office space (including the Chief Executive) with a combination of bookable collaboration/meeting spaces, bookable desks for focussed work and informal working/social spaces.
If so, we offer a fantastic opportunity via our Trust Staff Agency who support us to cover different shifts across our development locations & services.
These opportunities are ideal for those who want to work across different locations, in various roles, with highly flexible hours to suit family or personal commitments.
It's a great opportunity with the same training and development that our other roles benefit from but with added flexibility.
We also have a range of volunteering opportunities if you want to give something back to your community or broaden your own skills.
