ABOUT THE ROLE
As an Operational Trainer with Barchester, you’ll make sure the people working in our care homes and independent mental health hospitals have the training they need to provide the best in person-centred care for our residents and patients.
This is a home-based role that will see you travelling to 5 care homes across South East London and Kent. You will be responsible for delivering training at Westwood House, Thackeray House, Windmill Manor, Tandridge Heights, and Reigate Beaumont Care Homes to ensure that we always meet our high training standards. As an organisation, we put a huge emphasis on training and development, and you’ll be pivotal in ensuring our provision always is second to none. Your specific responsibilities will span training delivery, staff inductions and development, which makes this a very varied role. You can expect to be involved with everything, from planning training calendars, championing e-learning and supporting employees through their induction, to attending conferences, optimising apprenticeship opportunities and analysing our ongoing training needs.
This is a demanding but incredibly rewarding role that will see you delivering exceptional training and, in turn, having a lasting impact on the lives of our teams, our residents and our patients.
Barchester are the only healthcare provider to be accredited as one of the best companies to work for in the UK in 2019. We are dedicated to ensuring our workers feel supported and empowered to deliver exceptional care, and the role of Operational Trainer is key to this goal.
You should have a minimum of a C&G 7300 (or equivalent), a Level 3 Diploma in Health & Social Care (or experience of working in the care sector) and a good working knowledge of legislative requirements within the care industry. We’ll also want to see some experience of training, coaching and mentoring others, excellent communication skills and the ability to work well as part of a team. With a flexible approach and a full, clean driving licence, you’ll be comfortable working out in the field at our homes and hospitals (staying overnight if necessary) and undertaking shift patterns that include some evenings, weekends and early mornings – we want to give everyone the best possible access to our training. Strong organisational skills and plenty of initiative are also essential.
As well as a competitive salary, you’ll also have plenty of opportunity to grow your career in a warm and supportive environment.
If you’d like to use your coaching and people skills in an organisation that provides the quality care you’d expect for your loved ones, this is an empowering and rewarding place to be.
