As a Driver at a Barchester care home, you’ll provide a service that helps us give our residents the best possible care and support. We want everyone here to enjoy varied and fulfilling lives, and you’ll have an important part to play in making that happen. You’ll get behind the wheel to make all kinds of journeys involving residents, staff and visitors, and you’ll be happy to interact with everyone you drive. As a Driver, we’ll also rely on you to keep our vehicles in tip-top condition so that they’re always clean and roadworthy.

Due to the bus service now not stopping through our village, we are looking for somebody to pick up from Banbury to bring night staff into the home for 19:30, to then drop staff off in Banbury who have worked the day shift. The shift pattern would be 18:45 - 20:45, 7 days a week.

Courteous, respectful and patient, you’ll see this Driver role as an opportunity to help our residents get the most out of life. We’ll need to see a clean driving licence and a commitment to maintaining high standards of care, support and cleanliness. You should have completed NVQ Level 2 Health & Safety, Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) and infection control training.

As well as a competitive salary, Barchester offers one of the best rewards packages in the care sector. Your generous benefits would include:

• Free learning and development
• Automatic enrolment into our profit share scheme
• A range of holiday, retail and leisure discounts
• Unlimited access to our Refer a Friend bonus scheme

If you’d like to use your attention to detail and people skills in an organisation that provides the quality care you’d expect for your loved ones, this is a rewarding place to be.
