Support Workers receive record breaking pay award
We are pleased to announce a £1,000 increase in our standard Support Workers pay rate.
This award, which comes into effect from July, represents an increase of 6.4% and affects over 160 staff. It is the highest percentage uplift ever applied to Outlook Care’s Support Workers.
The rise follows increases applied in April to Nurse rates of over 6% and Health Care Assistant and Ancillary rates of 2 and 4% respectively.
These increases represent a significant investment in key groups of staff ensuring fair reward while helping us to attract and retain high quality staff.
Other staff on Outlook Care contracts receive a 1% pay increase. We undertook a comprehensive review of pay rates and have applied different awards to certain staff groups to support our aim of attracting and retaining high quality staff.
