We offer contracted working hours usually ranging from 18 - 48 hours per week, as well as BANK. Overtime is an option for all staff as well. For Care staff, these shifts are long days (12 hours) or early/late shifts (6 hours) but we do like our staff to be fully flexible, so in most cases set shifts are not offered.

Answered 31 March 2020
Like most companies, the holiday year is the calendar year from 1 April to 31 March. Under the Working Time Regulations 1998, a full-time employee is entitled to a minimum of 5.6 weeks' paid annual leave (equating to 28 days' leave). If an employee works more than five days a week, their entitlement is capped at 28 days' leave per annum. For part time and bank staff the entitlement will be on a pro-rata basis.All public holidays shall count as part of the employee's entitlement to paid leave, under the Regulations.FOR EXAMPLE: 5.6 weeks x contracted weekly hours i.e. if you are contracted to 20 hours per week your entitlement would be calculated as: 5.6 x 20 = 112 hours annual leave entitlement.The staff are required to fill out a holiday request form, so management/administration can cover the rota, so it is best to get the form completed as quickly as possible.

Is Eastgate Care pay better then other care providers?
Asked by Eastgate Care Ltd 21 January 2019
Like most care providers, we pay the national wage. This varies from role to role, and the rate of pay is listed on each of the adverts on Indeed.
