A career for life
A job in care could be for you
A career in social care offers long-term employment prospects, with opportunity for promotion and progression as well as job security.
Adult social care is one of the few sectors where jobs are increasing, offering significant numbers of long-term career opportunities in the current job market. There's an estimated 1.49 million people working in social care, and by 2035 we'll need to fill around 580,000 more jobs.
Social care is about supporting people to maintain their independence, dignity and control. This includes providing personal and practical support to help people live their lives. For St Martins Care this takes place across our residential, nursing and learning disability care settings.

The only thing I can say is brilliant! The staff are amazing, so friendly and professional.
Jan G (daughter of resident)
All the staff do a brilliant job caring for all residents. My wife is always happy when I visit and I can see that she has good rapport with everyone.
Michael P (husband of resident)
Accepting that a loved one needs full-time care is a very difficult process for relatives. We found the staff to be very sensitive to the needs of my mum and the whole family.
Michelle S (daughter of resident)
In my opinion my mother appears to be in better health than she has been in a long time largely due, I am sure, to being well fed and having her medication controlled.
Val L (daughter of resident)
The staff were very helpful and were there for me as well as Mam. I found comfort in knowing she was safe, warm and well fed.
