Full Time
As well as attending to personal care, helping residents get dressed, wash and receive their prescribed medication as instructed by medical professionals, you'll contribute to their well-being by ensuring a homely, safe and positive environment in which to live. As a senior you'll be expected to run a shift under the direction of the Deputy/Care Home Manager or Lead Nurse. You'll allocate work and duties and provide day to day supervision promoting best practice and compliance at all times.

With your experience of working with older people and people living with dementia alongside a recognised qualification in care (minimum level 2 diploma/NVQ), you'll understand the complex needs of our residents and will enjoy acting as a role model to our teams of Support Workers in everything you do.

What we are looking for:
The role requires a strong team player, supervisory skills and someone who can think quickly on their feet and trouble shoot problems and issues throughout the day. Diplomacy and sensitivity are key. You'll know when to refer issues to your line manager but you'll also be able to spot potential problems and trouble-shoot throughout the shift. You'll be used to putting others' first, building relationships of trust and resolving issues with residents' well-being and safety as a priority. You understand the challenges of the role but for you, they are outweighed by knowing that you'll enrich the quality of people's lives.

You can find more details about the role and the person we are looking for, through the role profile, which is available on our website.

If you are ready for this new challenge, we look forward to hearing from you.
