Welcome and thank you for your interest in becoming a Support Worker.
Our rapid growth over the past decade has only been possible because of the talent and dedication of our fantastic colleagues.
Every day, our staff support people with learning disabilities and mental health illness to achieve their potential. Whether you want to move into care work for the first time, or you already have experience and want to find the right place to progress, we welcome people who share our absolute commitment to quality and respect for every individual.
We offer a highly supportive environment in which you'll constantly learn and develop, and gain the care qualifications you want to achieve. All of our Managers started with us as Support Workers, so they're excellent examples of the opportunities for promotion at CTTM. As an Employee Owned Organisation we can offer our team members job security and a tax-free bonus scheme based on company performance, but most importantly we promise to listen.
About Care Through The Millennium
Care Through The Millennium (based in the West Midlands) was founded in 1996 by Christopher and Sue Higgins with the main aim of creating a caring family environment offering the highest levels of care and support to the service users who live in our homes.
In July 2015, we became an employee owned organisation (EOO), which means we're run in the best interests of the employees by a board of directors and trustees.
We currently have a workforce of around 300 staff based in our care homes across South Birmingham and Warwickshire, supported living service and head office.
