A bit about us

We’re Home Group one of the UK’s biggest providers of high quality housing and care and support services.  We have a wealth of expertise and deliver a wide range of specialist and support services to people with complex health and social care needs.  We recognise the diverse needs communities have and provide a team of specialists and clinicians within our business, supporting the NHS’s commitment to improving health and wellbeing through innovative new models of care.

We are currently undergoing a significant period of growth and change that will enable us to build more homes, independence and aspirations – the vision that underpins our new five-year strategy.

Working flexibly

It’s our unwritten rule that you attend the important appointments in life, be it your child’s school play, your partner’s graduation, or to get your new fridge delivered. You can elect to fit these around your working day or use your flexi to take the time off. Our focus is on getting the job done, not your working hours!  And we really mean this!

What’s on offer?

Through our brilliant learning pathways, we’ll support you with your own continual professional development (will even pay for your relevant professional membership fees too) as well maintaining your professional registration through regular clinical supervision and reflective practice.

What’s even more brilliant, there’s no need to work your way through red tape or mounds of paperwork and forms (as we are digital all the way!)  We’ll give you the latest IT kit (including surface pro tablet and smart phone) and you’ll also have the freedom to help us design this trailblazing service.  We are passionate about revolutionising the wider health care agenda through working closely with our NHS and academic colleagues to provide a seamless service with the highest level of patient care and satisfaction.  You’ll be able to really make your mark, shaping our services/policies, clinical design as well as delivering specialist training to colleagues across Home Group. 

The job for you?

We have a big role to play in tackling prejudice and discrimination.  We want you to be yourself here and value everything that makes you unique. So whatever your race, sexuality, disability, religion, gender or even non-gender, we recognise and celebrate your differences. Together we make Home Group a great place to work.
