About Jewish Care


What is it like to work for Jewish Care

Leadership
Leadership
Jewish Care is doing a piece of work called the strategy review. The aim of the project is to hear from everyone, especially staff about what they think Jewish Care should do in the future and develop a strategy. Staff know what works and what doesn't, as well as what might be missing and what else could be done. Simon Morris, the Leader, is passionate about the rights and respects that should be afforded to people less able than themselves and their ability to make a real difference to people's lives. He is a principled, kind and hardworking individual who leads by example. The complexity of leading an organisation like Jewish Care that works in so many different areas and includes 1000 staff, 2500 volunteers and has a budget of £46m a year, should not be underestimated. Simon however remains approachable, honest and down to earth. He leads the organisation in a transparent way with total commitment to the values, while staying in touch with his roots and retaining his humility, sense of humour and open-mindedness.

In the last 12 months they have introduced a Nurse Practice Award and awarded monies to the nominated nurse selected by a panel as the best nurse who has contributed most to the development of nursing at Jewish Care and demonstrates consistently best practice. This individual was given a development allowance to spend on development of their choice and has chosen to put the money towards studying an MSc.

They organise a quarterly new staff lunch where the CEO seeks feedback and ideas from staff who have joined Jewish Care recently. There are also Ask Simon postcards where staff can get in touch with the CEO to make suggestions, give feedback or ask questions. There are also tea and chat sessions where the CEO visits care homes and community centres to chat to staff and volunteers about issues they may have. Since the last survey they have implemented many changes. They have launched their Benefits You booklet giving details of the benefits they offer to all staff, together with their 2011 Reward Statement and have communicated information about bench marked salaries. They have shared results with teams and managers and launched a new leadership award for the manager with the best ‘My Manager’ scores - the winner received £500 to use towards their own career development. They are also currently planning a 'not so new' staff lunch for longer serving employees to have lunch with the CEO.
