Founded in 1992, Barchester started with just one care home. Today, we’re proud to have over 240 care homes and six independent hospitals across England, Scotland and Wales that continually meet and exceed all relevant regulatory compliance standards. We deliver exceptional levels of care to over 11,000 residents and patients and we employ over 17,000 dedicated people across the entire organisation. We have continued to remain at the forefront of the UK’s private healthcare sector by providing award-winning care and investing in our employees through training, continuous development and sector-leading rewards packages. Plus, from April 2021 we will be paying above the National Living Wage (NLW) and National Minimum Wage (NMW), and we are one of very few large healthcare providers to do this. With an extensive new build growth plan in place, we’re on track to opening 10 new care homes each year, for the next five years. But we can’t continue to thrive without the right people – people like you. We promote equal opportunities to our prospective and existing employees and display the Disability Confident logo with pride. We are also one of the UK's 25 Best Big Companies to Work For 2021 with '2 Star Outstanding' accreditation from the Best Companies b-Heard Survey. With an array of awards and achievements under our belt, we know that we wouldn’t be where we are today without our people.
