Staff Views on Working for Elysium

A happy and talented workforce ensures great patient care. That’s why it’s important to us that our employees enjoy working for Elysium Healthcare.


We encourage a positive culture and supportive environment, where employees feel valued and happy to work for us every day. A place where you really can have a long-term career that grows and offers you the personal and professional development you desire.


We like to think we’re doing a good job, but rather than us going on about it, we asked a few of our employees what they thought. Watch the videos below to learn what existing Elysium staff think about working for us.

“I’m going to an environment that I love every day. I think it’s the professional development that you get, you’re able to develop your career at Elysium. I was a charge nurse but I’ve just been given the role of acting ward manager. We all support each other, we’re just one big team.”

Staff Reviews From Indeed

“Staff are like a family, all very close and help each other. Management have an open door to any needs or things you want to express. We are praised for what we do, day in and day out no matter if it is just a thank you. The clients are challenging, yet rewarding as they all are so welcoming when you arrive in the morning!”


Care Assistant, Surrey

“I really enjoy the job and have gained skills and new experience also had to choice to further my skills in different areas of the company. If you want to work and be part of a team you will fit in. We have difficult days, however, we work together as a team to give the best possible care we can to our residents. My manager is firm but very fair and has been very supportive over the years and is a fantastic manager. I could not ask for a better place to work .”


Healthcare Support Worker, Daventry

“A great place to be part of a big family if you are prepared to work hard, respect others and be part of a team. The hospital aims to deliver a professional service and is very supportive towards its staff. Many staff have been there a long time – which speaks volumes. Not for people who are easily intimidated or lack confidence due to the pressures and everyday workload, but the right person would be very happy there.”


Former Administrator, Thathcam
