ABOUT OPTALIS

Our vision is to ensure that residents’ needs are met as early as possible by highly skilled professionals. To realise this vision and provide the best services we can, The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead and Wokingham Borough Council have formed a partnership to provide their adult social care services through their jointly owned company, Optalis.

 

Through this partnership, we realise economies of scale, increase our capacity and are able to help more people then ever before. All while focusing on quality and positive outcomes.

 

In order for Optalis to achieve consistently high standards, we rely on the truly exceptional work carried out by our staff. Optalis' ambition for customers is high, so we look for strong, innovative and enthusiastic individuals who are just as aspiring.

 

As a forward-thinking partnership, employee happiness and satisfaction is a high priority. The collaborative and supportive nature of the way we work provides a platform for Optalis' employees to achieve their goals and flourish into the best professionals they can be. It’s about being both challenged and supported, whilst having your own voice within the Optalis organisation at all levels of your career.

 

And don’t forget that Maidenhead is based in a beautiful, historic, lively and culturally diverse region where there is something for everyone. It could be true to say that you have everything you need right here – from excellent schools and a wide range of housing, to national heritage sites and rich nightlife. On top of all of this, it's just twenty minutes from London with excellent transport links.
