What’s your idea of working in care?

We’d love to share a glimpse of life at Salutem with you!

About our children’s home in Bedford:

Firstly, we need to introduce you to the children and young people we support. They love visiting theme parks, keeping pet parrots, eating out, visiting the beach, trampolining, football and much much more… (We’ll leave it there for now or we’d be here ALL day listing their favourite things to do!)

Could you be the friend or role model they need to help them live their best lives?

You must be 23 years or older to apply for this position due to current children’s care home guidelines.

About us:

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.

About you:

Our Support team at Salutem encourage children and young people to fulfil a stable daily routine and achieve their best. That might mean supporting them to go to school or organising a trip to a museum. The children and young people we look after may require complex care, but that doesn’t stop them from having fun, laughing hard and loving life.

Each day will be different, and the main focus of your role is to provide daily support in our residential services. 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!

What we offer you:

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.
