There has never been a better time to join Nottingham City Council. Known for inclusivity and innovation, we have also won a host of Employee Benefits Awards, are a leading employer of Apprentices and we are continually working around the clock to deliver high quality services for Nottingham’s citizens, visitors and investors.
   
Our aspiration is to make Nottingham a Great City, but to do this we need to be a Great Council, provide Great Services and recruit and develop a Great Workforce.
    
Join an organisation that gives you extra – we will value your contributions, promote flexible and modern ways of working, will double your monthly pension contributions, offer a very generous 25-32 days holiday package each year (exclusive of public bank holidays and dependent on length of service) and give you the option to purchase up to 28 days additional holiday tax-free!
        
Cherry Trees (Bestwood) and The Oaks (St. Ann’s) are modern residential units for elderly citizens with a range of needs, including dementia. Citizens may be either short term or longer term residents, depending on their identified needs and circumstances.

Care Workers at Level 2 are also expected to provide safe and appropriate personal care and support to citizens, in a way that maintains their dignity, maximises independence and gives them choice and control over the way their care is provided. This includes writing and maintaining individual person-centred care plans and the administration and provision of medication, as well as being prepared to work with citizens with different and varying needs.
        
Hours are worked according to a rota, including night time and weekend work.
