At The Hollies we pride ourselves in recruiting locally and providing health care assistants, RGNs and other care professionals with a chance to prosper and enjoy a fantastic career.

We have a very low staff turnover which is testament to high morale levels, and our rural setting makes working here feel like an extended family community as opposed to a clinical care environment.

Current vacancy


You may be considering a career change or planning to return to work – have you considered the personal rewards to be gained by supporting and caring for the older generation? If you have no experience or formal training but have the right attitude and desire to care for older more vulnerable adults, we will provide full training and support.

If you are already professionally qualified up to NVQ Level 5, you could expect to earn over £24,000 a year working 4 full day shifts (over £25,500 for night shifts).

New unqualified carers will quickly earn a minimum of £8.20 per hour; with weekend and overtime enhancements our carers will earn on average over £110 per day. New staff joining our team, who are committed to our philosophy of a friendly, caring and professional approach, can expect significant increases to their salary as they gain new and higher professional care certificate qualifications.

There is a real opportunity to progress to a Senior Carer or Clinical Care Supervisor where team supervision and greater responsibility are rewarded through broader training opportunities and a greater financial reward.

Make no mistake, caring for the older generation can be very challenging, requiring high levels of patience, empathy and commitment – but the reward that you will earn by transforming an individual’s life for the better are beyond measure by simply knowing that you have made a very positive difference to someone’s life.

The Hollies Care Centre in Dursley is growing with a new wing opening in 2019 and we will be looking to recruit new team members at all levels including:

Care assistants                                                   £7.50 to £9.00 per hour

Senior Carers and Clinical                                 £10.30 per hour    

Flexible Carer Bank Work                                  £11.00 per hour

All our contracted staff receive an additional £1:00 per hour weekend enhancement and £3.50 per hour overtime supplement.
