Careers in Care

We know compassion is part of you. And we understand that caring just comes naturally. That’s why here at Barchester, we’ll create opportunities for you to grow and progress. You’ll be supported when you face new challenges. And be rewarded for your commitment to delivering outstanding care and support to our residents and patients.

This is your chance to make a difference every day.
This is a career in care with Barchester Healthcare.

Every day really is different when you’re helping our residents live their lives to the fullest. Our people take pride in their hard work and the satisfaction they get from their role is one of the biggest reasons why they join the Barchester family, and go on to stay with us for a long time. Our focus is on providing environments that are well-staffed, comfortable, secure and happy. Every resident deserves dignity, choice and independence and we listen to what each of them tells us, doing all that we can to make sure they have everything they need.

As a member of our care team, you’ll provide the person-centred care and support that will ensure each resident gets the most out of this phase of their life. Working under the guidance of your team leader, you’ll be the first point of contact for our residents. It means you’ll be able to get to know each individual, their life stories and all of their preferences. You’ll then help us to deliver on those preferences so that their experiences with us are tailored to their exact needs.

For some of our roles, you’ll need to have experience of caring for older people. Your warm-hearted and can-do approach will shine through and you’ll have the compassion needed to deliver the standard of care and support we’re known for. For other roles, including our regional roles, you’ll also need to have some additional qualifications. But whatever your level, we’ll make sure you have the training and progression opportunities you need to thrive in your career. The training we offer is wide-reaching and designed to promote your understanding of clinical issues and ensure that you feel confident in all aspects of your role development. Furthermore, you could take the step up to become a Care Practitioner, or even move into nursing.

Whether you join us in an entry-level role or as an experienced carer, this is a rewarding place to be in other ways too. In return for your dedication, you’ll receive a competitive salary plus our sector-leading benefits and rewards package. This is your opportunity to use your skills in an environment where they really will matter – to our residents and their loved ones. We don’t just want you to feel valued, we want you to truly love what you do.
