  • Cash for colleagues - Earn money for friends you recommend
  • Priory Group pension.

We look after your career too, with our career pathways you, like many of our staff, can go from support worker up to CEO level with guidance and learning supplied by us!

We are keen to hear from you if you are flexible and happy to work evenings and weekends on a part time basis.  We are happy to consider flexible shift patterns, including days, early/late shifts and weekends - this can be discussed in more detail at interview.
