The Kazdin family is recruiting!
Our team supports people to live a life they love – which means we get to do all the fun things too. Please don't tell everyone, but we have just as much fun as those we support!
We’ve recently been to Harry Potter World to support Bethany, this was a dream come true for her. We also went swimming and to the Aquarium with Maggie. We even got our other resident out and about to a seaside location which he loved – and hadn't done for a while so this was such a big moment for him. Who doesn't love fish and chips by the sea!
Kazdin House is a 3-bed residential care home in Plymouth supporting adults with learning disabilities and autism, to live a happy and active lifestyle while achieving their goals and aspirations.
Sure, not every day is as exciting as going to Harry Potter world – but each day is different and importantly meaningful for the individuals who live here.
We love the job we do and we’re looking for new work-family members to share the good times with, so we can offer the best support we can (and keep having lots of fun too!)
Now we've shared a glimpse of what it's like to work for us, let us introduce ourselves. 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. Our dedicated support teams empower individuals to overcome any obstacles and live the life they choose.
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 work days, nights, and flexible shifts too. Talking of ‘dream’ jobs, some of our shifts are sleep-ins!
We want the best for everyone we support and that's what makes us a family. If you have the ability to support someone to feel at home, be their true self, and do what makes their heart happy – we want to hear from you. This is a meaningful role and will suit someone who is looking to make a difference and make memories that'll last a lifetime.
We know our staff put 100% into building brighter futures for the individuals we support. That's why we offer career progression no matter where you start in the organisation. Your progress here will be regularly reviewed and as you gain expertise your rate of pay will increase. We believe in creating a Career from Care and we want the support workers we recruit now to become our managers of the future!
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 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. We also have a healthcare scheme you can opt into that looks after you when you need it most.
We enjoy using our internal staff communications app, Blink, where everyone has a voice and can lean on each other for daily support, and celebrate success too.
We have a massive duty of care towards those we support who are often the most vulnerable in society, which is why our staff are encouraged to keep up to date with vaccines and focus on self-care too.
We hope this gives you a little glimpse into this role and vibe of our organisation. We want everyone at Salutem to live their best lives, and look forward to hearing from you too! #applynow
