Work for us

By choosing Orchard Care Homes you are joining a progressive and ambitious group of care homes located across the United Kingdom. We are driven to provide the very best standards of care and quality within our homes, and to recruit the very best professionals to our company. Our commitment to training and development is core and we believe we are driving up the standards of quality of life care within our homes through our work with activities, third party charities and our food and beverage offering.

Our person-centered approach to care relies on the dedication and passion of our employees, who we expect to go the extra mile to improve the home experience and generate a relaxed and informal community within our homes.

We set our standards high and we are looking for enthusiastic people to help us grow, so we can lead the way in making our homes a rewarding and enjoyable place to live and work.

It’s the attitude you can bring to Orchard Care Homes that we value, not necessarily your background in care - we recruit people with previous experience, and those for whom a job in care represents a new beginning.

Whatever your level of experience we have a role for you. We are always looking for talented care assistants, cooks, housekeepers, laundry assistants, caretakers, administrators, activity coordinators, managers and deputies. From time to time we also have opportunities at our Support Centre in Harrogate.

Orchard Care Homes knows that many recruitment agencies would like to offer their services to us, however we strongly believe in working with a small group of agency and recruitment specialists who have built a strong understanding of our values and business requirements.

Our approach is to partner with organisations that understand our business and as we do, hold themselves to high standards, which reflect our Mission, Vision and Values as well as the expectations of external stakeholders. 

In turn, we strive to work with suppliers who share our values because we believe that business relationships are most productive and effective when they are built on trust, mutual respect and a common commitment to operating responsibly and ethically.

We promote a strong internal promotion culture by training and developing our people and if we do need to recruit externally, we prefer to attract candidates directly via the Orchard Care Homes website.

Please do not approach our Resourcing Team or Managers across the business, instead should you wish to be considered as a supplier please send your contact details to
