Welcome to Optalis, we think you’ll like it here.
Launched in 2011, Optalis was, at the time, only the second local authority trading company in the country to provide adult social care services. Back then we had 250 staff. Today, our team of over 700 make a difference to nearly 5,000 customers across Windsor, Maidenhead, Wokingham and beyond. We’re also the only organisation of our kind in the UK to deliver the full range of care and support services to older people and adults with a disability, including all statutory and safeguarding functions.
What’s the key to our success?
We firmly believe that clear values and a cohesive strategy win the day, every day. Our values - customer service, respect, transparency & integrity, communication, continuous development, enjoyable and rewarding - were co-produced with our colleagues and our customers, as was our strategy. Put simply, we focus on the important stuff - our customers, our colleagues and our communities.
What’s it like to work here?
We place a real emphasis on staff satisfaction and go the extra mile to create an environment that offers opportunity for personal and professional growth. Our staff turnover rates are pretty low too, when compared to other organisations in the sector. A mindful employer with a strong teamwork ethos and an open, accountable and transparent culture, the people that work here like what we do and stand for and choose to stay. We worked out recently that we have more than 5,000 years of health and social care experience between us!
Where could you fit in?
With our service provision being both unique and extensive, there are plenty of opportunities available at all levels, whether you want a steady job in friendly surroundings or to progress and experience different social settings. And, if you’re looking for CQC ratings, Star awards and Disability Confident Employer status, you’ll find them all here too. From Administrators and Support Workers to Employment Coaches and Social Workers, Counsellors and Psychotherapists – Optalis is quite simply a great place to work.
