C&K Careers currently employs over 150 employees. We strive to ensure that our workforce and new recruits reflect the ethnic diversity of the communities we serve.
We pride ourselves on our low rate of employee turnover with staff retention rates much higher than comparable organisations. Our sickness absence is below the national average and this reflects the commitment and reliability of our employees and our positive approach to employee welfare and support.
We value our staff and regard people as our greatest resource. In return we offer an excellent working environment and people friendly organisation and wide range of benefits:
- flexible working & family friendly policies
- excellent opportunities for personal, professional and career development
- 26 days annual leave (fte) & 10.5 days bank holiday
- staff suggestion scheme and SharePoint bulletin board
- profit sharing scheme
- childcare voucher scheme
- discounted will-writing service via Ramsdens Solicitors
- vehicle servicing and MOT discounts
- pension scheme
Equality and diversity is embedded in our work. Where we believe some sections of the community are under-represented, we will promote vacancies via outreach centres, social media and community channels in order to reach these groups.
We are dedicated to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expect all our staff to share this commitment.
We also practise what we preach in offering young people an excellent start to their employment journey by providing a range of apprenticeships and internships through our structured training programmes.
