Business and Administration Careers at Barchester

With more than 200 care homes and seven independent mental health hospitals, ours is a very wide-reaching organisation. It’s no surprise, then, that we rely on a whole host of people with business skills to help us deliver the quality care our patients deserve.

We look for business professionals in Marketing, Accounting, Human Resources and IT functions – amongst others, as well as people with the administrative skills to support them.

As part of our business and administration team, you’ll provide the strategic approach we need to maintain our sector-leading position, keep our homes and hospitals running efficiently and effectively, and promote Barchester as an employer of choice.

Our business managers bring experience from many different sectors – you don’t need to come from a care or hospital background. What we do look for though is a passion for people, a forward-thinking, reliable approach and a commitment to ensuring that we always have the best services and systems available.

These roles aren’t about working directly with our patients and residents, but you will have a very big impact upon their lives all the same.

There’s no limit to how far you can go in your career with Barchester:

Administrator – Hospital

We can only provide the highest quality care and support if everything in our independent mental health hospitals is running like clockwork – which is why our Administrators are so important. Heading up an admin team, you’ll carry out a range of responsibilities ranging from payroll matters to petty cash.

Administrator- Care Home

Everyone has a part to play in giving our residents and patients the person-centred care they deserve, and our Care Home Administrators are no exception. You’ll support the management team with the home’s admin and financial activities, including database management and payroll, as well as helping to make the facility friendly and welcoming.

Admin Assistant

This role is about more than handling files and answering the phone – as well as that, our Admin Assistants help to make our care homes truly welcoming. As a real people person, you can expect to engage with visitors, residents and their families as well as supporting our managers across diverse tasks.


Our caring and courteous Receptionists provide the warm welcome that helps to make our environments feel like home. In this varied role, you’ll answer phone calls, greet visitors, manage the reception area and show prospective residents, patients and their families around. You might have some administrative tasks too, like typing and filing.

General Assistant

We want to enable everyone in our team to deliver person-centred care and support day-in and day-out, and that’s why our General Assistants are so important. Taking on responsibilities across admin, housekeeping and catering, you’ll get to know our residents and help create a warm and homely environment.
