What our staff say

“I love it and every day is different. I’m always very busy and my manager is good at delegating. He allows us to be proactive and this works well for me.”

“I genuinely feel that St Martins cares about the welfare of its staff and service users (which I think can become overlooked in larger organisations).”


St Martins offers its staff a comprehensive training program. There is a mandatory requirement for all staff to attend core training, particularly in relation to mental capacity acts, statutory rights, equality and diversity, best practice in health and safety and anything essential to carrying out an individual’s job description.

In addition, staff and their managers are encouraged to seek further areas for training and development as part of an annual appraisal process. St Martins’ staff are asked to be proactive in suggesting any training or development opportunities that will enhance their performance. Staff are also rewarded for making any policy suggestions which become implemented by the organisation.
