Pay Rates

When the pay rate says “depending on qualifications” the lower rate is for people who do not have a Level 2 Diploma/NVQ in Health and Social Care and the higher rate is for people who have a Level 3 Diploma/NVQ.

If you do not have a Level 2 when you are appointed then you will complete your Care Certificate and start working towards your Level 2. Once you have your Level 2 you will receive an extra 15 pence per hour. After the Level 2 you can choose if you want to complete your Level 3. On completion of a Level 3 you will receive an extra 20 pence per hour. After 18 months of satisfactory service you will receive a further pay rise of 25 pence per hour.

If the pay rate says “fixed rate” then it doesn’t change due to qualifications gained or length of service.

Staff get a lot of training at Mencap in Kirklees and there are no charges for any of the courses. There are also no uniforms to buy or charges for things like DBS checks.

The holiday allowance when you start is 22 days plus the 10 ½ bank holidays. It increases the longer you stay with us and after 6 years reaches the maximum of 28 days plus the 10 ½ bank holidays. Care staff often have to work some bank holidays and if you do those days can be booked at different times throughout the year.

After you have been with us for one year Mencap in Kirklees starts to pay sick pay. This covers the equivalent of 2 weeks full salary in the first year and rises to a maximum of 3 months full salary after 6 years.
