As you can see, we group people by training and experience, not competence or commitment. We expect everyone who works for Avanta Care to share the same aptitude and ambition for work in the care industry.
Our distinct grades are fairer too
Now, we can match the needs and priorities of nursing homes with the unique abilities you, our care assistants, offer them. Plus, if you become more experienced and better qualified, it’s only right that you get rewarded for it. Likewise, we want to give you an incentive to do that.
These grades also mean better quality placements too.
Suppose you’re hired as a grade 1 or 2 carer above. This means care homes recognise that you need extra support, with on-the-job training from experienced staff. If you’re grade 3 or 4, you’ll be more empowered to work independently, in roles that challenge your expertise.
