A responsible business

We take our responsibility for improving the lives of people in the communities where we operate very seriously, and this extends to providing employment

and training opportunities, including through arrangements with partners.

We believe that our strength as an organisation lies in the quality of our people, so we offer a range of opportunities to attract new talent to our



An inclusive and inspiring employer

As leaders in our field, at Sanctuary Group we recognise that to exclude people on the basis of disability would be to deny ourselves a significant pool of talent.

It is our intention to be one of the most inclusive, inspiring employers in the UK. This can only happen if everyone is equally valued in the workplace.

We aim to attract quality staff from all walks of life and all backgrounds by encouraging a workplace culture where diversity is valued and promoted.

Sanctuary is committed to ensuring that equality, diversity and human rights are integrated into the way we plan, develop and deliver all our services. This isn’t just good news for our employees and our customers, it’s an essential part of the way we operate.


Apprenticeships – Harnessing fresh talent

Sanctuary’s award-winning apprenticeship scheme continues to expand, with programmes available in a wide variety of business areas ranging from accountancy to horticulture, and from health and social care to maintenance. These offer apprentices the opportunity to study for practical qualifications while undertaking an active role in the business and gaining valuable work experience.


Graduates – Developing future leaders

Sanctuary’s graduate programme is designed to give graduate trainees an opportunity to explore different parts of our business and develop the skills they need to become future leaders. With a 100 per cent retention rate, the programme is now in its fourth year of operation and continues to attract high quality candidates.


Our people are our strength
