M&D Care is 24 hour service, providing support for 365 days a year. This means there is an expectation to work days and nights, weekends and bank holidays, as the service requires. We will work with you around work-life balance and where possible accommodate your needs; however, the needs of the people we support are the most important part of the service delivery.
Our full-time staff are contracted to 37.5 hours per week. The majority of the current shift patterns are 12 hour shifts, depending on placement. However, we do our very best to accommodate people who may have difficulties or prior commitments. You will have access to work overtime shifts should you wish to undertake additional hours (in line with the working time directive opt out).
We have a monthly rota system in place so that you are able to plan for your month ahead. However, there can be unforeseen or urgent circumstances that mean the rota could change. We try to keep alterations to a minimum, and any changes are communicated as soon as possible.
