We value our staff. As a token of our appreciation, Encore offers a Welcome Bonus to Registered Nurses when they join our team.
We believe that if our teams are happy, this will filter throughout the entire home, and in turn, the residents will be happy.
Financial rewards and advanced training programmes are in place to make sure our staff are always furthering their professional development.
“I feel really valued and recognised within this organisation.”
If you’re a healthcare professional looking for a kind and fulfilling place to work — or perhaps you’re looking for a new and rewarding career in care, we would love to hear from you!

At Encore, we continually train and develop our staff so that they can provide the very highest standard of care to residents. We also want our teams to develop their skillset and progress in their role.
As such, we offer staff the opportunities to become Champions and Leads within an Encore care home within a variety of specialist areas. The roles run alongside their existing one and we give staff the time to develop and listen to their ideas for improvement. For those that are interested in becoming a Champion or Lead, they are asked to write a short statement explaining why they would be the best person for this role, what they will bring to it and how they will develop it.
Encore staff are also assigned a Buddy when they first join, who acts as a mentor and shadowing partner on shift. Buddies are there to support new staff; making them feel welcome and on-hand to answer any questions that the new member of the team might have.
Tina started as agency carer, progressed to a permanent carer role, then on to senior carer and is now a Lead in Falls & Moving & Handling and a Lead in End of Life Care.
Liza first started with Encore as a volunteer working alongside the activities team. Liza is a qualified youth worker but wanted to go in a different direction and support the elderly, as she feels very strongly about their welfare. She enjoyed working as a volunteer so much that when a permanent role for an Activities Assistant became available – she went for it!
