We also consistently fund and support many of our employees to gain the professional qualifications or certifications they require to progress in their careers.

The ability to work flexibly can be especially helpful if you are a parent, have caring responsibilities or have a disability or long term health condition. Flexible working comes in many different forms. Some of our people work part time, some have annualised or compressed hours whilst others job share. A popular benefit is our flexi scheme.
All our employees can request flexible working via their manager. If it’s what you need and it’s right for our service users we’ll aim to support you the best we can.
