Our team don’t just make the difference, they are the difference.
Our quality of care, our skilled and highly-trained carers, our specialisms in complex needs including MND, and our ambitious social enterprise activities means that we have an outstanding reputation for our work, and outstanding people in our team.
With over 80 care workers supported by an office-based staff of seven, we work closely together as an agile, well-organised and dedicated team who strive with genuine passion and commitment to make a real difference to people’s lives.
We centre our support services around each client, we set out to make everyone we care for’s day brighter and better, and we focus on the detail – because we know it’s the little things that make the biggest difference.
Our care assistants come from wide and varied backgrounds, with many strings to their bow; mums, dads, therapists, actors, bakers, teachers, uni students, young retire-ees, first-jobbers with ambitions to get into the care and nursing sector… Joined together with our equally multi-talented office team, we make a friendly, lively, highly-skilled and adaptive family that can move mountains.
In 2017, we were awarded ‘Best Care Employer in the South East’ at the Great British Care Awards.

Our team do amazing things for others, each and every day. And because they make a real difference in other people’s lives, we do everything we can to make a real difference in theirs.
Every one of our team members is highly-valued and cared for – which is why we can proudly say that our employee retention rates are far above the industry norm and many of our carers have with us since we began in 2007.
We offer generous benefits and pay that’s inline with local living wage, and we reward our team members for value-based achievements. We provide the best training in the industry, and it’s always on-going; we also pay for time spent training – because that’s the way it should be.
Being part of the Martlets Group family means our people often choose to join in with lively and rewarding community projects that help support the hospice. Although we are separate organisations, there’s often opportunities to work alongside the Martlets Hospice clinical teams in the community and at the inpatient unit, too.
Working as one of our care assistant’s is often a first step into a career in care – some go on to train as nurses. For others, it’s a flexible job that can easily fit around any working lifestyle – be that family, student, or other part-time work or commitments. If you’re passionate about helping people, and you’d like to join our award-winning team, we’d love to hear from you.
