We firmly believe that our difference lies with the people who work here.
Founded in 2000, The Calico Group has grown from a small housing provider into an award-winning group of specialist companies and charities. More than 700 staff have joined us on our journey, and together we work with a shared purpose: to make a real difference to people’s lives.
To do this, each part of The Calico Group has its own specialism and expertise. Together, we’ve established a track record across the North West for providing a complete community service that includes housing, healthcare, support, employability and construction.
Geoff Birkett, Maintenance Assistant – Facilities
I started at The Calico Group almost four years ago. When I first started, I was shy and not very confident. The Calico Group has given me an opportunity to grow and develop in my job as Maintenance Assistant, and to make lots of new friends. I now work closely with building contractors and customers, and have grown in confidence. Thank you to The Calico Group for the chance to be the best I can be.
Providing quality services that make a real difference to people’s lives.
We want to help individuals of all ages and backgrounds, and their families, live peacefully and prosperously in warm, secure homes and safe, friendly neighbourhoods.
In fact, whoever you are and wherever you are at, we want to help you enjoy a better future.
To do this, we want to attract, develop, empower and retain people who support our businesses to thrive and grow – people who share our values and, like us, have a passion and integrity for making our customers’ lives better.
We all commit to, and care about:
For staff to truly live our values, they will be on a continuous development journey; improving their skills, confidence and wellbeing to help make a real difference to people’s lives.
That’s why we have a genuine focus on unlocking individual strengths and actively promote an environment where managers and leaders are inspiring and supportive; so that everyone gets the most out of their work.
