Do Competence, Choice and Compassion mean more than just words to you? Are you able to see a person and not their condition? If you answered yes, then our residents need you!
If caring comes naturally and you are looking for a rewarding career where you can really care and make a difference to our residents’ lives, then this is the job is for you.
The training package we offer is exceptional, and comes at no cost to you. We deliver carefully designed and inspiring, interactive workshops to all our staff so that no matter what your background is you will be confident, professional and able to achieve your career aspirations and feel proud of the work you do. We welcome applications from people who have care experience, and from those who are new to care. We also welcome people from diverse communities, and pride ourselves in our open and non-judgemental culture.
Everyone is different and we celebrate individuality, and no two days are the same. You will deliver the highest quality personalised care to our residents in line with their individual needs with the dignity and respect they deserve. If you can offer a natural warmth and wish to make a difference to our residents’ lives then we would love to hear from you.
We have a fresh approach to care delivery, so forget the stereotypes and come and see if this is the chance to work somewhere where you really count, in a stunning modern building and with amazing people.
We look for honesty, reliability, and genuine kindness, along with the ability to step into the world of our residents. If you are successful, you will be able to share and enjoy those special moments together with our residents. Looking after those living with dementia can be one of the most interesting, fulfilling and rewarding careers, for everyone.
If you are interested in joining our team we will nurture and invest in you, and we will support you to be the best you can be.
