Careers at OrbisAre you looking for a rewarding lifelong career...
Working With Us
At Orbis we have an amazing creative team of care, education and therapeutic staff. Every day is different in our schools and homes, but what remains the same, day in day out, is the commitment and dedication of our staff to really make a difference to the lives of others. Making sure that children and adults feel safe, respected, empowered and, above all happy, is all in a day’s work, but this is only possible when our team members are supported to feel the same way.
We want to be the employer of choice in the care industry. We want to reward the hard work and dedication our staff demonstrate daily with a benefits package that ensures our team members get the very best, both personally and professionally, throughout their career. And that’s why if you come and work at Orbis you will be rewarded with loyalty schemes, a healthcare plan, paid induction and continual training, in recognition of recruiting and retaining the very best employees and investing in skills.
We also offer a hugely competitive starting salary of £11.25 an hour for level 1 support workers, with plenty of training opportunities to help further the career development of all our staff. We know working in this industry can be tough sometimes. We support those who support others with easy access to counselling services for employees.
If you have a passion to help people live their best life and you want a lifelong career that offers ongoing learning and progression, we want to hear from you. Many of our managers and senior management team started as support workers or learning support assistants, and are now service managers, area managers and directors. Others move into therapeutic roles and work towards professional qualifications.
But, don’t worry if you’ve never worked within the care industry before, we welcome applications from people from any walk of life. Whilst some staff join us from within the care or education sectors, many others join us straight from college or university, or from other sectors wanting a change of direction or career. We offer full training and support.
All you really need to fit in here is a desire to make a difference.
By joining Orbis you will become part of an award-winning team that makes a real difference to the lives of others.
You can expect progression, a competitive salary and a wide range of benefits in return for your hard work.Read More
