Caring is at the heart of everything we do
At The Orders of St John Care Trust we are all about care. Genuine, quality care.
We care about our residents, their families and our communities.
We also care deeply about our colleagues. Our incredible, dedicated teams of skilled and supportive colleagues who make a real difference every day in all our care homes, extra care housing schemes and offices.
The Orders of St John Care Trust has been looking after people for almost a thousand years, so we know a thing or two about providing exceptional care. In all that time, we’ve been fortunate to have employed thousands of committed, thoughtful colleagues with a shared goal.
If you think you have the right skills and attitude to deliver the very best quality of care for residents within our homes, then you could be next to join our long history of caring.

Why we love working here
Since starting her career with us in 2009 as a housekeeper, Sian’s career path has seen her progress through carer to care leader and most recently deputy home manager at Edwardstow Court. She is committed to the values of The Orders of St John Care Trust and these have supported her in achieving her goals and realising her potential.
“I like looking after people. In a care home you get to look after the same people for such a long time that you get these lovely relationships out of it.”
