They say there's no place like home. As a Care Home Assistant Practitioner, you'll have a huge part to play in making sure that's true for all our residents. For you, it all starts with unique hands-on training - after which, you'll be well on your way to becoming a real expert. From administering medications and taking blood pressure, to putting care plans into practice, you'll support our nurses, and in turn, they'll continually support you. As the bridge between our nursing and care teams, you'll thrive on the chance to quickly develop your clinical skills, confidence and career within care - whether that's into nursing, management or both.
Everyone here is focused on making sure our residents feel settled, secure and right at home from the moment they arrive. As a Care Home Assistant Practitioner, that's when you'll know that you've arrived too, as you do this in all sorts of ways. This role could be the springboard towards becoming a nurse or manager. Or, you might love the role exactly as it is. After all, it's incredibly rewarding. It has status. It has challenges. It has responsibility. And above all, it has the scope to make an even bigger difference to people's quality of life.
We're looking for very experienced Care Assistants (12 months or more) that have already achieved or are working towards a Level 3 qualification in Health in Social Care. Above all, we want to see real ambitions to develop a career in care - with a leader in the field. To join us as a Care Home Assistant Practitioner, it goes without saying that you'll need to be caring, compassionate and empathetic. You'll also need to learn fast and challenge where we could be doing things even better.
Full training will be provided over at least a 12 week period where you will have a dedicated mentor to work alongside. Following the CHAP Training, you will be invited to a graduation with peers across your region where you will be presented with a FSHC Fob Watch and Certificate.
We already have innovative tools and technology in place to help you focus on building relationships with our residents, their families and your colleagues. Now we just need you. So, join us, and learn faster, earn faster, make a much bigger difference, faster.
