The Fed is one of the largest employers in north Manchester. We’re proud to employ more than 300 people, many of whom are based at Heathlands Village and directly involved in the care our residents.
Many people have worked with us for years and years and quite a few are related to each other. This tells us that we are not only a good employer, but a happy, family orientated place to work.
A large number of people work at our Heathlands Village care home. We also employ people within our community teams supporting individuals, couples and families who live in their own homes. As a large organisation, we need plenty of office staff to support our front-line services.
We offer lots of employee benefits:
Blue Light Card
We reimburse staff £4.95 for a 2-year Blue Light discount card for gym membership, holidays and more.
Health Benefit Scheme
We provide a free healthcare scheme, saving you money at the dentist and optician or if you go into hospital (worth over £100 p.a.).
Monthly Staff Draw
All staff are automatically entered into a monthly staff draw for a £20 high street shopping voucher.
