Investing in skills, learning and development
Everyone who joins Consensus to work for us shares our values. That way we can be sure that every member of every team and service in our organisation is focused on supporting opportunity, choice and success for the individuals we support. Read more about our values.
We also recruit for attitude and personality. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have all the right skills – we can provide the training.
Our ethos is to ‘coach, develop and grow’ our people. This helps us to provide high quality, consistent service and it supports our colleagues to stay with us and maximise their potential.
We invest heavily in learning and development, we’re quick to recognise and nurture talent and give you the recognition and rewards you deserve. What’s more our Future Leaders Programme and Coaching Award are endorsed and fully approved by ILM, the leading provider of leadership, coaching and management qualifications and training.
Focused on learning and development
Whether you join us as a support worker, a home manager or in one of our head office teams, you’ll receive clear learning and development support from the start. That means regular reviews with your manager to explore your career goals and to put a personal development plan in place to help you achieve your potential. While we believe in opportunity, choice and success for the individuals we support, it’s equally true for our own colleagues.
Developing leadership potential
Planning for the future is a must for us if we are to continue to deliver the very best support and care. Through our Future Leaders Programme we nurture the management skills and talents of those in the organisation who have what it takes to lead in the future. We spot leadership ability early on and work with you to develop your skills, either by promotion, or in your current role so you’re ready for a move when an opportunity comes up.
