    As a Community Lead within our Residential Care Homes at Barchester, you’ll help to make our residents’ lives stimulating and fulfilling so that we can deliver the person-centred care and support they deserve. Always focusing on respecting our residents’ independence, privacy, dignity and choice, while leading and supervising our team of Carers and Senior Carers. 

    The role of Community Lead will involve some clinical responsibilities, including recording observations on weight and blood pressure, and carrying out simple wound dressing procedures. Across everything you do, you’ll be a role model for your team and someone our residents and their families can trust to provide a safe, reassuring and happy environment. You will build key relationships within the home and externally.


    You’ll need senior-level care experience to join us as a Community Lead. You’ll also have supervised others and developed a good understanding of how to provide clinical care for the older person. We'll look for a Level 3 NVQ or Advanced Diploma in Health & Social Care plus a willingness to undertake the assessor qualification. Enthusiastic, tenacious and full of integrity, your caring approach and strong communication skills mean you inspire trust in others. Most of all, you’ll share our commitment to maintaining a vibrant, supportive culture that empowers our people to put our residents and their families first.


    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
    • A range of holiday, retail and leisure discounts
    • Unlimited access to our Refer a Friend bonus scheme
