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.
Kelvedon Road is an 8-bed residential care home in Tiptree, Essex, supporting adults with learning disabilities and physical disabilities to live their best lives.
The home consists of two bungalows, accommodating up to eight individuals. The properties have level access, specialised beds, bathroom facilities and ceiling hoists. The people we support are encouraged to personalise their rooms to their preferences. There is also a communal garden which is a great place to spend time with family and friends.
Kelvedon Road is a short distance from the local facilities and Tiptree High Street which has all the local amenities. We are a short drive from Colchester and Kelvedon Station which is on a main line to London Liverpool Street. The service also has access to three vehicles for travel around the local area.
Each day will be different, and the main focus of your role is to provide daily support to adults in our residential services. It’s definitely not a normal 9-5, you can workdays, 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 all our staff are vaccinated against Covid.
