Job Description

About Care UK

We run over 120 homes and day clubs across the UK. We provide residential, nursing, dementia and end-of-life care for older people. As one of the UK’s leading care home providers, our goal is to help every employee fulfil his or her potential – with first-class training and support.

About You

You’re a caring, fun-loving person with a passion for helping older people stay fit, active and independent. You’re an excellent motivator and an inspiring leader. And you’re good at building friendships – so you can get to know residents and create tailored activity plans based on their individual interests and ability. Most of all, you recognise what a vital role activity and exercise can play in the physical and mental well-being of older people. You’re willing to go the extra mile with your team to make a big difference to our residents’ lives.

About the Role

Reporting to the Home Manager, you’ll lead a small team of lifestyle co-ordinators. You’ll work closely with your team to create interesting, tailored activity plans for every resident. You’ll take time to get to know residents and their relatives – to find out which activities or hobbies they find stimulating. You’ll also be responsible for organising outside trips for residents and involving the wider community in the home. It’s a hugely varied role that’s both challenging and rewarding. With quality training and lots of support, we’ll help you make a big success of it.

As Lifestyle Lead at Care UK, you can look forward to:

  • Contracted hoours
  • Free DBS
  • Free parking
  • Fast-track career options
  • Quality training to develop your skills
  • Flexible hours
  • Stakeholder pension
  • Thousands of online and in-store discounts
  • Where you'll work
  • Our purpose buill three-storey home, welcomed its first residents at the end of January. The ground floor is a hub of activity, with a hair and beauty salon helping residents to look and feel their best. A café overlooks the landscaped gardens, and with cake, tea and coffee always available, it’s the perfect place to catch up with visitors. On the second floor there’s also a cinema room, complete with large armchairs.

  • Care UK is committed to ensuring that it employs people with the right mix of talent, skills and potential and will assess every applicant fairly regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, responsibilities for dependents, age, physical/mental disability or offending background.
