Contract Type
Full Time

As a Regional Care Assistant with Barchester care homes, you'll
deliver warm, empathetic and respectful care and support across a
20-mile radius to help our residents get the most out of life. On a
practical level, you can expect to monitor the delivery of care when
on duty, contribute to the person-centred care planning process for
each resident and record observations on things like temperature and
blood pressure - amongst a range of other important tasks. The role of
Regional Care Assistant is very varied and also involves providing
support and companionship. It's vital for us that every resident
enjoys meaningful one-to-one time with our carers, every single shift.

A background in care is important for the role of Regional Care
Assistant, and you'll need a good understanding of elderly care. A
Level 2 NVQ in Health & Social Care would be useful, as would a
good understanding of the wider healthcare industry. Ideally, you'll
also have a C or above in GCSE English and Maths. Dedicated and
compassionate, your passion for people means you'll go above and
beyond to support the wellbeing of residents. Because you'll be
travelling across the area, you'll either need your own car or ready
access to one. We'll cover your mileage when you travel over five
miles from your main home, and if you're on duty at the time of an
inspection and we achieve a 'Good' rating, you'll qualify for a bonus.

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 care experience 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.
