ABOUT THE ROLE
As an Activities Assistant at a Barchester care home, you'll deliver imaginative, fun and varied activities to ensure our residents can enjoy an environment that is motivational and fulfilling. We want to make sure each individual can pursue the interests they most enjoy. The Activities Assistant role involves helping us to deliver an entertainment and activities programme that covers a wide range of pastimes, social activities, outings and events. You will be responsible for our social media content and put your excellent marketing knowledge to good use within this role.
What's important is that you have a sense of fun, creativity, and the ability to encourage and motivate others. You'll also need to have that little extra something and a real interest in the people we support. Enthusiastic and empathetic, you're someone who'll really enjoy helping our residents to live their lives to the full. This role is perfect for someone who is caring and compassionate, wanting to combine your marketing, planning and social media skills. You will ideally have a fantastic understanding of social media platforms and collaborate with the General Manager to create a social media calendar and assist in the planning and delivery of community events.
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 creativity 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.
