Why work for us?


We spend so much time at work don’t we, so our ethos at Sanctuary Care is to enrich the lives of both our residents and staff. Let’s have some fun while we’re at work, support each other and work hard as a team. There’s loads of training and promotion opportunities available for those who want to pursue it and every day job satisfaction at Highcroft Hall for all regardless of role.


Sanctuary Care has over 100 care homes and you can ‘feel’ the difference a team makes the moment you step through one of our doors. The team at Highcroft is special and we’re looking for special people to join us. Become a part of it and apply for this role.


Where you’ll work


Every week some very well-behaved rescue dogs come into the care home to bring that Friday Feeling. Lena, Woody, Teddy and Ava, who belong to the home’s administrator Dale, take it in turns to come and say hello. Residents, including those living with dementia, adore animal therapy and love to fuss the dogs, especially Teddy who is a real lapdog. Highcroft Hall is a busy care home with stimulating activities at the heart of everything we do. Whether limbering up in a gentle exercise class, singing and dancing along to musicians from across Wolverhampton or enjoying being pampered in the home’s hairdressing salon, there is always so much to do.
