What is St. Anne’s Community Services?
St. Anne’s is an award-winning health and social care provider and housing association, based in Yorkshire and the North East. We have over 80 services providing wide-ranging care to people with learning disabilities, mental health issues, nursing needs and drug and alcohol issues.
I don’t have any experience or qualifications
This is not a problem as many people who join St. Anne’s do not have previous experience within social care. All training will be provided as part of your induction programme.
I have not been in employment for a while. Will this affect my chances of being offered a position?
This is not a barrier to employment with St. Anne’s. All applicants undergo the same application, interview and recruitment process and are offered roles based on merit.
What are the shift patterns?
This will depend on the service you work at. There will be rotas in place and some shifts may include weekends, evenings and nights.
Is personal care required as part of my role?
This depends entirely on the service and its service users. Many of our services differ but it is quite possible that personal care may be required as part of your role. You will be asked whether you are willing to provide this as part of the application process.
How long does the recruitment process take?
We aim to have new starters starting in their new roles within 8 weeks of the interview date. However, there are external factors that can affect the length of time recruitment checks take such as an individual’s DBS application and references.
