An Employee Owned Company

Chief Executive, Russell Brown has been a Shaw employee for over 13 years and has been key in making the Employee Ownership Trust (EOT) a reality; The vision of giving employees an interest in the company goes back to 2006 when Jeremy Nixey, Founder and Honorary President led a management buyout and since then through a series of initiatives that Russell introduced to bring employees a sense of ownership, engagement, and involvement in the company. The initiatives included free shares, share options, opportunities to sell shares and culminated in the creation of an EOT in in May 2020.

...and proud of our people

They speak for themselves and we’re working every day to make them even better by listening and growing. We’re proud of the services we offer throughout the country, supporting local authorities and organisations, provide, design and develop innovative care services for the future.

Good care is a part of a greater sum, of course, those delivering the care are essential but other roles in the Shaw family take good care to great care. We value highly people who ensure safe and clean environments, those who entertain and provide leisurely exercise, those that make sure services run smoothly and enable others to do their jobs well.

Role examples: Domestic Assistant, Activity Champion, Maintenance Operative, Service Administrator, Concierge

These are hugely important roles to those in our care. These individuals are placed in positions of great trust; Kind, patient, considerate and caring interactions are vital to ensure the wellness and happiness of those we care for. We provide comprehensive training for all types of people, those with no experience looking to start a career in care to dedicated qualifications for experienced carers looking to specialise in a specific field of care.

Role examples: Support Worker, Senior Support Worker

Managerial roles are often key to the success of the happiness of those living and working within a service. Their ability to be aware of their teams’ strengths and to apply them effectively whilst motivating and developing them means that we can deliver the quality of care that we would expect for our own loved ones. Their role is to champion the safety, dignity and independence of those in their care.

Role examples: Service Manager, Deputy Manager, Unit Manager, Team Leader

At the heart of Shaw are our nurses and we are looking to support those starting their journey as a registered Nurse and to develop and nurture those who are already experienced nurses. We offer excellent career opportunities and provide regular training to help you achieve senior roles.

Role examples: RMN, RGN, Staff Nurse, Clinical Lead, Team Leader Nursing

Mealtimes are opportunities to be social and we want our dining experiences to be pleasurable from beginning to end - Well laid out dining areas and tables, tasty and well-presented food, consideration for dietary and cultural requirements, well timed service – we offer many roles where catering skills can be used to enhance individuals’ experience of care.
