Firstly, you will have a rewarding career, knowing that what you do matters!

We believe in rewarding our people for the amazing work they do - benefits include: 

As we deliver NHS contracts and work closely with the NHS wider family, we offer Agenda for Change contractual entitlements, which include generous maternity, paternity, adoption and sickness provisions; and special leave/time off for volunteering. 

CityCare staff can access a generous pension contribution of 20.8% from the NHS making the total contribution over 25%.

We are committed to ensuring all employees can balance their working life with commitments outside of work.  For example, if you have caring responsibilities, you can make a request through our Flexible Working policy to find a flexible working pattern that suits.

The annual leave entitlement for full-time staff working 37.5 hours per week over five days is significantly more generous than most comparable roles.  It’s 27 days on appointment, rising to 29 days after 5 years’ service and 33 days after 10 years’ service.

CityCare has an interim uplift, which came into place on 1 March 2022 until further notice, in response to the cost-of-living increase.  Our current mileage rate is 71p per mile up to 3,500 miles.  Thereafter it is 25p per mile.  For lease cars the mileage is 19p per mile.

There are discounts at local gyms, shops, NCP car parks, NCT buses, mobile phone offers and more.

Save money on a new bike, safety accessories and clothing through the Cycle to Work scheme for your commute to work or visit the online Bike Shop and encourage all the family to get outside!  It’s good for you and good for the environment.

Lease cars are available via salary sacrifice schemes with tax benefits.

CityCare staff can access rapid referral to physiotherapy and mental health support, COPE Employee Health Hub, Cycle to Work scheme and flu vaccinations.

CityCare has its own Preceptorship programme to provide you with a positive and nurturing start to your career pathway with us.  The programme which was developed using guidance from Health Education England and professional and regulatory bodies, will provide you with protected development time to help assist you on your journey from final year student, to newly registered practitioner or preceptee. It’s a fantastic opportunity to help you develop professional values, behaviours, confidence and competency, so that you can enjoy and undertake your first role to the best of your abilities here at CityCare.

We recognise the importance and value of providing quality practice learning experiences in community settings, to train our future workforce and provide development opportunities to existing staff through involvement in practice education. This is an essential requirement for Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) revalidation, and Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registration renewal. In line with the NHS Education Contract (NEC) with Health Education England (HEE), CityCare is committed to provide safe and quality assured learning environments for healthcare students across our services.

CityCare has a range of staff networks designed to help staff support each other and colleagues and ensure there are advocates for under-represented groups; including:

  • Disability, Ability and Wellness Network (DAWN)
  • Unpaid Carers Network 
  • LGBTQ+ Network
  • Menopause Network 
  • Ethnic Equality Network

The aim of the Network Groups is to provide all staff with a fairer and more inclusive place to work, as well as tackling issues and empowering staff who may be underrepresented and/or disadvantaged. The groups therefore provide staff with a safe space to talk about what matters to them.

This week we are spotlighting the Staff Network groups at Nottingham CityCare by introducing each of the groups leads. The current Network groups at CityCare are:
