Benefits of Working With ‘Outt’
Choice & Control
It's important to be in control! OUTT offers you social care shifts and allows you to choose when you work, where you work, who you want to work for and the hourly rate you are willing to accept.
Work - When You Want
OUTT has been designed to allow you to easily work around other jobs, family and commitments. Once registered, simply log in on your mobile, tablet or laptop and look for social care shifts near you!
Pay - When You Want
We don't believe in tradition when it comes to your money. If you have worked a social care shift that has been confirmed, then you can get paid. OUTT has weekly payroll, but you can access pay on your terms.
Each pay rate is agreed when you accept the shift, but we suggest a minimum hourly rate of £10 up to £18 for experienced project workers. If it’s last minute or unsocial hours you can ask if the want to pay an uplift, straight from the app! If you don’t ask, you don’t get…
No Hidden Charges
This makes us cross! We don’t like charges, and neither should you. No hidden charges for training or payroll, just the essential tax and national insurance from any job. All our staff are fully employed under the HMRC PAYE scheme, payslips and everything.
Yes of course, holiday pay is essential and a legal right in the UK. Everyone needs a break, so your holiday pay will be accrued for every hour you work, by default, and you can withdraw as needed upon request to the payroll team. Simple and no questions asked.
Training in social care is an essential and mandatory element of compliance. Making sure care workers are up to speed and aware of the basics, which makes it a mandatory, annual task. We have a growing range of courses for each speciality, you can even upskill using your development fund to pay for new courses and training.
To register you can upload recent training certificates, as long as they were taken within the last year. Or you can join the OUTT Academy and take online courses to add to your profile. At no cost to you!
DBS & References
Checks are an essential part of our service and solution. The highest level of compliance provides employers the reassurance they need to trust OUTT and you!
We will run DBS checks or use your update service. Plus references in line with current national recommendations, which is at least two professional references to cover a minimum working period.
6 Months Minimum UK Experience
Work experience is essential for employers as you will be required to hit the ground running, often in an unfamiliar setting. In these situations you will rely on your training and experience, employers will expect this from you.
6 months + UK related experience is the miminum standard, you can select your skill sets, competancies and experience, so that employers can search and find the best candidates for each shift.
Additional Info about Working for OUTT
Social care covers such a wide section of societal care and support. From roles in registered care establishments like care homes and nursing homes to working as a conceige at a homeless shelter. Both very different but essential roles.
OUTT was developed in response to the Covid-19. We anticipated that employer demand for social care candidates would increase during and after the pandemic (it was already reported to be over 17% vacancy rate in 2018-2019 and growing).
