Activities Co-ordinator - Maternity Cover

The Orders of St. John Care Trust

Apply

Location

OX4 3NH

As an Activities Coordinator, you are absolutely essential to the well-being of the residents that we support. At the Trust we aim for our homes to be vibrant, joyful communities with a wide range of stimulating activities and entertainment available, with something to suit every taste and ability

You will be required to get to know our residents, and their families; to tailor an on-going programme of activities and events aimed at promoting their independence and social engagement, and to ensure everyone has personalised involvement that suits their needs.

What experience do you need?

You will be joining a very committed team, led by a supportive management team. So albeit that someone with experience working with older people in a residential setting would be beneficial, it isnt essential. Whats more important is that you have experience creating, organising and delivering great events, engaging with your local community.

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
  • 28 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.
