When you work in a Dormy Care Community, you are truly cared for and valued. You will receive a comprehensive induction programme and ongoing personal development to ensure that you are on a positive career pathway. You will also receive a competitive base salary as well as a staff reward scheme.
We believe in giving our employees a positive work-life balance through flexible shift patterns. It’s the little things that matter, which is why we launder staff uniforms and give those working an eight-hour shift or longer free staff meals whilst on duty. You will also get 5 weeks holiday per year.
Recognising our exceptional employees
Every year, we host our very own Dormy Awards with a gala dinner and presentation, to recognise the amazing staff in our homes who go above and beyond every day. We aim to reward everyone who makes an extra special contribution to our homes, from the administrators to the nurses and carers, family liaison officers, maintenance assistants, catering assistants, activities coordinators and more. This is just one of the ways we give back to the amazing people that give so much every day
Aims & Commitments
Our aim is very simple - to provide the highest standards of care and service in the very best environments. We will do this by adopting a series of commitments which will also in turn, be adopted by the whole company staff team.
We will ensure that the care and service we provide will meet the highest standards at all times.
We will ensure that the people we support are treated with dignity and respect at all times.
We will ensure that all of the people who live in our homes are supported and enabled to remain as independent as possible, for as long as possible.
We will ensure that advanced technology will always be available to provide a link between a resident and their family.
We will ensure that our social enrichment programme enhances the lives of all people who live in our homes and provides life-long learning opportunities wherever possible.
We will provide gardens of the highest standards and actively encourage the residents to take part in the maintenance of these.
We will endeavour to source local suppliers for our supplies including local produce, local service contractors and healthcare supplies.
We will ensure that we as a whole company are socially responsible through recycling as much of our waste as possible and conserving energy through having energy efficient buildings.
We will ensure that our staff are recruited locally and that they are offered the highest standard of training with a career pathway that has no boundaries.
We will aim to pay all of our staff above the living wage regardless of age (subject to successful completion of a probationary period).
We will reward and celebrate excellence in all areas of our business.
