Why Join SENAD

Here at The SENAD Group we aim to provide a safe, nurturing environment for children, young people and adults with a range of learning disabilities and other complex needs.

We value our staff and strive to support them in achieving their professional goals by identifying potential, offering progression opportunities and funding many of our employees to study recognised qualifications.

We offer all staff a ­­­­thorough induction schedule, which offers training specific to each role as well as ensuring staff in all departments have an excellent awareness of the needs of those we support. We also like to promote from within, the majority of our Shift Leaders and Home Managers started with us as Support Workers, have a look at our ‘Staff Journey’ for more information.

Staff benefits include pension, accredited qualifications and an Employee Assistance Programme which provides 24hour counselling, support and information services for all SENAD staff.

We have high expectations of ourselves, colleagues and those we support; join our team and see what you can achieve.

Expect more. Expect better.

Our fantastic bespoke training programmes, which are delivered by our experienced local training teams and managers are just one of the reasons why working for SENAD is so great.

“I’ve finished my 2 week training and I just wanted to say thank you to all of you.

I know several people that work in the care sector and many claim their company don’t really care about their residents or staff. I don’t get this impression of SENAD at all.

All of you made the training engaging, insightful and sometimes fun – I expected simple “box ticking” and “black and white” industry standard training, but it was much more than that.

I’ve learnt so much and I’m very grateful for the way you all conducted the sessions and the knowledge you have passed on.”

A career in care can make use of lots of transferable skills from other industry sectors, as well as being as much about your personal qualities than your qualifications as you’ll receive full nationally accredited training as part of your role.
