As part of this vital team at a Barchester care home, you’ll provide the person-centred care and support that will ensure each resident gets the most out of this phase of their life. Whether you join us in an entry-level role or as an experienced carer, you’ll find this is a rewarding environment where your compassion and dedication will really matter.
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 simply need to bring a passion for people and a warm-hearted approach. For others, including our regional roles, you’ll also need to have some experience of caring for older people and relevant qualifications. Whatever your level, we’ll make sure you have the training and development opportunities you need to thrive and deliver care that is second to none. The training we offer is wide-reaching and designed to help you make a difference to our residents’ lives, promote your understanding of clinical issues, develop your own career and ensure that you feel confident in all aspects of your role.
When you join us as a carer, you’ll build the well-rounded understanding of our organisation that could open up lots of other opportunities to you. You could take the step up to become a Care Practitioner, for example, or even move into nursing. Put simply, these rewarding roles will give you the perfect platform from which to build a lasting, highly fulfilling career.
