The Oakleaf Group provides a friendly, supportive and dynamic working environment for staff. The managers are approachable and are in and around the services every day.

We provide a comprehensive induction training programme for new staff to make sure everyone understands how we like to work and to make sure everyone has the right knowledge and skills. A wide-ranging training programme also runs throughout the year, co-ordinated by our training department to make sure the staff team has the most relevant and up-to-date skillset.

All staff who work directly with the residents are subject to the usual DBS checks (previously known as CRB) as well as standard employment checks prior to starting work with us.

Our main service at Hartwell is just 20 minutes drive from central Northampton and our Duston and Community Services are even closer.

If you are considering applying to work with us and would like to know more about any of the roles, please feel free to contact us for an informal chat. Otherwise, please visit the Current Vacancies page to see what jobs we have available and to download an application form.

The Oakleaf Group are proud to announce that they have been chosen to be part of the “Teaching Care Homes” Programme

The staff at Oakleaf are passionate about working in the care sector and have been chosen as 1 of 10 organisations nationally to act as a centre for learning, practice development and research, actively engaging with staff, students, residents and the community.

Oakleaf Group Leads in the Teaching Care Homes Programme L to R Tracie Harrold, Rebecca Cowell, Sinead Pemberton

Led by Care England, and funded by the Burdett Trust for Nursing, the programme began in May 2016 designed to raise the profile of care home nursing by:

  • sharing the learning and developments achieved
  • support the development of a network of care homes that can act as ‘critical friends’ or ‘buddies’ to other homes
  • create wider learning opportunities for the care sector by supporting both local and wider events and add to the body of knowledge through publications.
