Absolutely. This is underpinned by our excellent processes which enable us as a company to monitor performance, which for a manager, leadership forms a key part.

Answered by Avery Healthcare

Our staff are paid for the hours of work, excluding breaks. There are variances from home to home in terms of shift patterns. We always try to make this clear in our job advertisements and this can be checked if you attend an interview with the Home Manager directly.

Answered by Avery Healthcare

We are proud of the friendly working environments created by our homes. Each home is like a family where we welcome people who share in our organisations' vision and values, nurturing and developing our staff to provide exemplary care, putting residents at the heart of everything we do.

Answered by Avery Healthcare

Our homes operate shifts on a rota, which includes weekends. The range of shifts varies depending on the home and will be a combination of earlies, lates, long days and nights.

Answered by Avery Healthcare

Yes, in our new homes as we open them we avoid offering long shifts, however, some staff do prefer working longer hours and others do not. We endeavour to be flexible around offering a combination of long and shorter shifts, where feasible.

I received mine after my 2 night shadow shifts. Came quickly, nice to look professional. The uniform is just like any other care uniform I have had. They can be tight fitting so for example if your a size 14 ask for 16.
