ABOUT THE ROLE
As a Care Practitioner at a Barchester care home, you'll carry
out a range of tasks that help us give our residents the quality care
and support they deserve. Your role will involve taking responsibility
for medication, wound management, continence, physiological assessment
and care planning under the guidance of the on-site Registered Nurse.
The role of Care Practitioner is the highest level of Care Assistant
we have, so you can expect to lead, motivate and inspire a team of
carers. This is a very rewarding and fulfilling role that will give
you real scope to make a difference to the lives of our residents,
along with plenty of training and development opportunities.
You could be a qualified Care Practitioner, or you might be a
Senior Care Assistant ready to train and make the step up. To take
that next step, you must already have a NVQ Level 3, ideally with an
apprenticeship, and/or GCSE Maths & English at Grade C or above
(or equivalent). Whatever your experience level, you'll have a passion
for delivering the best in person-centred care and support. You should
be confident when it comes to supporting a nurse with medication,
assessments and care planning, and you'll have the ability to
supervise and get the best out of the care team.
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 * Access to childcare vouchers * A
range of holiday, retail and leisure discounts * Unlimited
access to our Refer a Friend bonus scheme
If you'd like to use your motivational 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.
