Christadelphian Care Homes exists mainly, although not exclusively, to care for members of the Christadelphian Faith. We operate a number of Care Homes and Sheltered Housing schemes throughout the UK and are able to deliver care tailored to individual needs from low support through to residential, nursing and specialised care, including dementia. Here at Christadelphian Care Homes we are committed to providing the highest quality individual care and support, a happy and enjoyable atmosphere ensuring that residents are fully involved. Our aim is to enable our residents to lead fulfilling lives and participate in regular activities, individually tailored to residents’ wishes.
At our site in Acocks Green we are looking for Care Assistants to join our home, working across both day and late shifts on a full/part time basis. As a key member of the care team, you’ll put residents first, always going the extra mile to make sure individuals receive high quality care in a safe and dignified way. You’ll lead by example, supporting and inspiring other team members to deliver the very best standards of care. Communication is key and you’ll liaise with various healthcare professionals to ensure residents get the medical care they need. As part of a close-knit, friendly team, you’ll use your initiative and talent to contribute to the success of the home. In return, we’ll help you build a successful career.
To be successful in this role you’ll be dedicated and passionate about helping others, being enthusiastic, positive with a can-do attitude. Experience is preferable but not essential as it’s more about being a warm, friendly and compassionate person who’s as committed as we are.
Additionally, you’ll have:
– Excellent communication skills and a great team player
– The ability to make responsible decisions that are always in the resident’s interest
– Personable with the ability to build rapport with residents and other staff members alike.
– An NVQ 2/3 in Health and Social Care is desirable but not essential, and you should be willing to get further training if needed.
As well as a generous hourly rate, paid holiday and uniform, Christadelphian Care Homes will give you the necessary support to grow and further your career within the Care Sector.
If you’d like to use your clinical and people skills in an organisation that provides the quality care you’d expect for your loved ones, then we would like to hear from you.
