ABOUT THE ROLE
As a Care Home Assistant at a Barchester care home, you'll carry out a range of tasks that help us provide the quality care our residents deserve. No two days will be the same as you take on diverse responsibilities across care, housekeeping and catering. You'll get plenty of variety and will be able to develop a broad range of skills along the way. Whether you're cooking up meals, keeping our environment well-maintained or spending one-to-one time with our residents, you'll be delivering a warm and homely atmosphere where they always come first. If you find yourself drawn to one of the areas you work in, we'll make sure you have the opportunity to progress there full-time.
You don't need any specific qualifications to join us as a Care Home Assistant. As you'll be a big presence in our home, what's important is that you have excellent communication and team working skills and a positive, can-do approach. You should be practical and willing to turn your hand to different tasks, ready to adapt to all sorts of different situations. If you have experience in care, housekeeping or catering that would be useful, but we'll provide all the training you need to thrive with us.
As well as a competitive salary, Barchester offers one of the best rewards packages in the care sector. Your generous benefits would include:
• Free learning and development
• Automatic enrolment into our profit share scheme
• A range of holiday, retail and leisure discounts
• Unlimited access to our Refer a Friend bonus scheme
If you'd like to use your can-do approach and people skills in an organisation that provides the quality care and support you'd expect for your loved ones, this is a rewarding place to be.
