Location

OX12 7AX

As a Care Leader you play an integral part of the care team, you will be responsible for leading, managing and supporting your care team ensuring they are providing a high quality of care and service to all residents at all times. You will make sure care plans are regularly reviewed through continuous assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of our resident’s care. You will take an active part in engaging with residents to understand their lifestyle choices at a level and pace that values the individual and respects their dignity and communication differences.

Working within the Care team you will show warmth, compassion and support to our residents and their families; helping to promote independence and dignity and positively enhancing the lives of individuals in our care.

What experience do you need?

As an important member of our team we will ensure you have all the support and tools required to be successful in your new role. But we are looking for someone who has at least a Level 2 Health & Social Care diploma (and willing to work towards Level 3) with supervisory experience, or a desire to progress from a senior carer into a role where you will be leading a team.

What will you get in return?

You’ll be working for one of the largest not for profit care providers in the UK. A great advantage of being a large organisation is that we can offer competitive pay, generous benefits and training to reward you for taking such good care of our residents.

Here’s an overview of some of the benefits you could get for working for us;

  • Company pension
  • Company sick pay (after probation)
  • Weekend rates
  • Life Assurance
  • 30 days holiday entitlement (including bank holidays) pro rata
  • Free uniform
  • Free DBS
  • Free car parking
  • Employee Assistance Programme and Health and Wellbeing Platform
  • Comprehensive Induction, ongoing training and development
  • Refer a Friend bonus scheme paying £500 for carer recommendations
  • “My Rewards” offering you discount on shopping, days out, restaurants and much more

The Government’s ‘Infection Control Fund’ (introduced as a result of the Coronavirus) requires Care homes to restrict permanent and temporary staff to working in only one care home, to help reduce the spread of the Coronavirus.   As a result of this, if you already have another job elsewhere (either in Care or another sector) and you wish to continue working there alongside the Trust, unfortunately we would not be able to progress with your application at this time. However, if you are happy to consider committing to working for us exclusively until the restrictions are lifted we are happy to discuss guaranteeing you the hours you will lose from not being able to work your second job. Or once the restrictions are lifted, please do not hesitate to re-apply for any of our roles that maybe of interest to you then.

  • Contract Type: Permanent
  • No. of hours per week: 32
  • Candidate Contact: 0345 013 1714
  • What level of DBS check?: Enhanced
