We recognise and value individuals

We recognise where people choose to work is influenced by the opportunities for career progression, the opportunity to make a difference, aligning work to personal values, a fair rewards package, or simply looking for satisfying work that balances with a busy home life with access to flexible working. These elements are key to how we develop and grow our people.

Our offer to you

We know that for many people at SCW, the opportunity to make a difference to the outcomes of our customers, patients and populations, and doing work that aligns with our own individual values is rewarding, but did you know that alongside the competitive salary we also offer a wide range of other benefits?
