Skills for Care is a great place to work.

We’re named as one of the Sunday Times 100 Best Not for Profit Organisations to Work for in 2016 and have been awarded the silver accreditation for the investors in people award.

Without our employees, we’d be unable to support the adult social care sector to deliver high quality care.

Our employees say they love the constant challenges of working for Skills for Care, developing resources that really make a difference to people working in our sector.

So we ensure our staff are supported, motivated and feel part of our organisation and provide them with opportunities to develop and grow. These development opportunities include our own mentoring programme and knowledge sessions run by our CEO.

Does this sound like the next exciting opportunity for you? Have a look at our latest vacancies.

We have opportunities based at one of our two offices in Leeds (head office) and London, as well as a number of mobile roles across England.

We care about people and work together to support the adult social care sector deliver the highest quality care.

Everything about our culture helps us to share this vision and each and every member of our staff team is a vital element in its delivery.

We work to seven values principles to inform the way we work, what we do and how we do it.

  • We deliver outcomes that have a measurable, positive impact on the lives of all those who need care and support.
  • We ensure value for money for the taxpayer, through efficient and effective stewardship of public money.
  • We use our brands to create a compelling workforce offer; one that enable everyone to have a one-stop-shop for development in our sector.
  • We encourage innovative thinking that enables the workforce to provide better, whole person care to those in need.
  • We nurture our talent. We will do this by investing in our employees so that they can leave: but treating them well so they want to stay.
  • We work in partnership with others, to ensure that the whole workforce offer is more joined-up and relevant.
  • We are inclusive in our work, knowing that diversity across social care is a key strength.

Our Working Together framework outlines the personal attributes and underlining characteristics we expect all staff to demonstrate in achieving our objectives.
