ABOUT THE ROLE
As a General Assistant at a Barchester care home, you’ll carry out a range of tasks to help us provide the quality care and support our residents deserve. No two days will be the same as you take on diverse responsibilities across housekeeping, cleaning, laundry and catering. It’s because this is such a wide-reaching role that you’ll be able to play your own part in creating a warm and homely environment. Caring and empathetic, as a General Assistant you’ll put our residents first and build the kind of positive professional relationships with them that make their experience with us happy and meaningful.
You don’t need any specific qualifications or experience join us as a General Assistant. People in this role come from all walks of life and they have all kinds of life experiences and career paths behind them. You’ll be a big part of our home so what matters is that you’re reliable, compassionate, caring and always ready to make a difference. You should be practical too, happy to turn your hand to different tasks. If you have all of this, our training will cover everything else you need to thrive. You’ll also have the opportunity to take courses that will develop your skills even further.
As well as a competitive salary, Barchester offers one of the best rewards packages in the care sector. Your generous benefits would include:
