Roles in care

We have a number of vacancies and various hours available at locations around Derbyshire. Most of these posts will involve shift work and may include evenings and weekends.
The posts include:
- care worker - residential

- senior care worker
- residential social care worker (in our short breaks/respite centres)
- managerial roles

You can search for roles in your areas and apply on our jobs website.
We'll make sure you are supported and protected in these roles, with full personal protective equipment. For our care worker and domestic roles you don't need previous experience as training will be given, although this would be an advantage, particularly if you have worked in a caring profession previously.
Adult care worker apprenticeships
We're offering apprentice opportunities in our residential, day care and extra care establishments around the county. Apprentices can be any age and you'll have ongoing support and mentoring from our experienced staff. After completing the 18-month training you'll receive a Level 2 Diploma in Health and Social Care and we'll support you to explore a variety of job opportunities with us.
The current deadline to apply for an adult care worker apprenticeship is 31 December 2021. However, we will be shortlisting applications in batches on a monthly basis from now until the closing date.

Flexible direct care roles

Experience is needed for our relief senior care worker roles.
If you already work in another health and social care setting (for example another care home, home care provider or hospital ward) and intend to remain in that job, we will be unable to offer you a post with us at the moment. This is due to Public Health England guidance that advises care staff should not move between facilities due to the risk of transferring coronavirus.
We're looking for passionate and committed social workers to join our community and hospital based teams in Derbyshire. We offer excellent working conditions and you'll be fully supported in your role with good opportunities for development and progression.
We welcome and encourage applicants from a black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) background as well as newly qualified social workers.
