We have a track record for making a real difference

Our management team will always be there for you

Our office team has a wealth of experience and we will always make time for you.  If you need help with a problem or have a concern about a client (or a colleague) you will be able to talk about that issue with the right people at the right time.  Someone will always be on call to help you outside of office hours … that person is dedicated to providing on-call support and won’t be covering care calls.

We are a friendly bunch who stick around

We actively seek to recruit people who are friendly and approachable – you’ll find that trait throughout the majority of our team.  On average our team members have been working for Gardiner’s for nearly 7 years, which is a remarkable figure in comparison to the 30% staff turnover rate experienced by most to the adult care sector.

Market-leading high rates of pay

At Gardiner’s, we appreciate the amazing job that our team does.  We seek to reflect that as best we can in the market-leading high rates of pay that we offer.  We also offer holiday pay, pension contributions, sick pay and mileage pay for travel.

Our minimum duty times and realistic expectations

At Gardiner’s, our minimum duty time is 1 hour.  If you are used to 15 minute back-to-back visits or worse, this couldn’t be further from our approach.  We seek to book care workers regularly for duties at clients they get to know well.  We also strive to make sure that we leave plenty of travel time between each and every care visit.


The range of support needed by our clients means that a role with Gardiner’s can be flexible.  If your circumstances change, the hours that you work with Gardiner’s can change to meet your new situation.

Fantastic training and support

We truly value training and seek to give our team access to a broad range of opportunities.  As much as possible, training is provided face to face, supported by a broad range of online learning.  All of our team have a named care manager with whom they meet regularly for supportive supervision meetings.
