We recognise that it can be difficult to ask about time off and wages when applying for a job, without feeling awkward. We want to alleviate some of that.
Our full time care workers are entitled to 5.6 weeks' paid holiday (statutory annual leave) a year.
Your 5.6 weeks' legal minimum holiday is usually made up of:
20 days = 4 weeks
+ 8 days (which can be the year's bank holidays) = 1.6 weeks
Your 5.6 weeks' statutory annual leave entitlement might include bank holidays, depending on your contract.
If you work part time, you’re still entitled to 5.6 weeks' paid holiday, just in proportion to the hours you work ('pro rata').
You can work this out by the number of days you work a week x 5.6.
For example, if you work 3 days a week, you’re entitled to 16.8 days' paid holiday (3 x 5.6) a year.
If your employer gives full-time employees more than the statutory annual leave (for example, 6 weeks), then part-time employees must get the same, calculated pro rata.
More information available on the ACAS website.
Your wages are paid on the last Friday of the month and all payslips and financial information is accessible through our payroll portal, helping you to manage your information in an efficient, paper-free way.
We have signed up to Hastee Pay; a scheme which allows you access to any wages you have earned, ahead of pay day. We believe this helps staff to better manager your finances and help get you through any challenging times, or unforeseen circumstances that life may throw at you.
