Anybody with or without a learning disability deserves to live their life as they wish to live it, and helping them to do so is the most rewarding job in the world.

Listening

Everyone needs a chance to say what is on their minds. That’s why we value our staff forums. Staff from every part of the organisation meet regularly and help us improve terms and conditions for employees.

Protecting your loved ones

We know that staff worry about how they will provide for their loved ones and dependants if the worst happens. To make sure that staff know they will still be able to support their families whatever happens we provide life assurance at no cost to staff.

24-hour, confidential, free, helpline

Our employee assistance programme offers advice, information and guidance on finances, mortgages, dependent care, and legal matters, via telephone or face to face counselling.

We’ll help you look after your family

We will top up statutory maternity pay if you say you’ll come back to work for us at the end of your maternity period. We also pay enhanced paternity pay to fathers for the first two weeks.

On your bike!

Sign up for our cycle to work scheme and get a loan from us to buy a bike – you can then spread the repayments back to us over a period of months. Payments are taken from your salary before tax and NI.

Pension

By joining our popular Enhanced Pension Plan you contribute 4% of your earnings and we contribute 4% to your pension.

We’ll pay for your Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks

All our jobs require the successful candidate to undergo a criminal records check by the DBS, which we’ll pay to have done. Please note that having a criminal record does not necessarily bar you from appointment with FitzRoy.

We believe that having well trained teams who understand the importance of their role and how they contribute to person centred support is at the heart of FitzRoy’s continuing success. We provide award-winning training in line with the Care Certificate through a blended approach of tailored classroom courses and e learning to ensure everyone gets the best start possible.

We support managers to be the best they can be by giving them the opportunity to attend a leadership development programme and through feedback with their line managers and support functions. Managers develop their teams and provide job enrichment through additional role responsibilities in a variety of ways. We also encourage our staff to apply for jobs internally, offering career progression . Everyone needs to know they are doing a good job, and be rewarded for it. That’s why we recognise your hard work through a range of loyalty awards including increasing your annual leave over time and other staff benefits. We live our values through all our work, including looking after our staff team.
