Do you need flexibility in the days you work? Our bank roles (sometimes referred to as “relief roles” in other companies) mean that you will be able to choose from available shifts and have the benefits of a consistent workplace combined with opportunity to build positive relationships with the individuals we support.

Old Liverpool Road in Warrington houses 10 adults with complex mental health needs. We also provide support to individuals in the community within their own homes. We are a 7-day service and are looking for people who are willing to cover shifts during the week and weekends.

 

This is an amazing opportunity to work in a positive environment with a dedicated team who value the individuals they support and make a difference in people’s lives every day.

 

We value our team and encourage learning and progression through our comprehensive induction programme, as well as on-going training to develop new and existing skills and encourage progression. Sanctuary has their own Learning and Development Academy, who provide a wide range of training courses, open to all.

 

Sanctuary also offers a great employee rewards scheme, where you will be able to receive a variety of discounts from major retailers.
