Work for us

If you want to know what Oaklea is really about, strip it back to its bare essentials - we’re all about people.

We’re very proud of how, every day, we help transform so many different lives in a multitude of ways.

Here’s Paul speaking in Summer 2019 he supports a group of adults in Ferryhill, County Durham. He’s developed a real bond with the guys he’s with - its definitely not just a job to him - no wonder he’s been with us for a long time:

And this is Liv - she has a double life (!) - she supports people in South Lakeland and combines this role with leading our Customer Advice Team at Station House (the main point of contact for our customers, stakeholders etc) -it means she sees how our work impacts on customers lives in many ways. She says she gets a lot out of working for Oaklea:

The mechanics of our organisation mean there are lots of important people in the background (mostly unseen by those whose day to day living depends on us) making sure Oaklea delivers its promises, but our focus and motivation is always for the people we assist.

Our teams operate throughout the North of England, covering an area from Nottingham and Cheshire up to Cumbria, Northumberland and the Borders.

If you would be interested in joining the Oaklea Trust team then we’d be delighted to hear from you - HR Team


We’ve got a brand new Supported Living Project in Cumbria that launches in January 2020. It will help support 4 young adults in Ulverston play a full role in their community - if you want to know more about what this could entail - come along to our informal get together in early December.

Look out for our informal coffee morning jobs event in Workington in December (Monday 9th) 1000-1300 at the Oval Centre, Salterbeck.

We’re holding a Jobs Fair in Workington end November for our Homecare team -Friday 29th to be exact - please register
