ABOUT THE ROLE
As a Bank 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. It’s a very varied role that will see you provide cover as and when we need it. 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 Bank Regional Care Assistant 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 Bank Regional Care Assistant, and you’ll need a good understanding of elderly care. A Level 2 NVQ in Health and 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. Flexibility is important and, 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 competitive pay, you can look forward to a role that offers true flexibility and plenty of free learning and development opportunities. As one of the UK’s leading healthcare providers, we take the growth of everyone who works for us seriously.
As this is a Bank position to provide cover as and when we need it, such as for annual leave or sick leave, the hours and days you work will vary.
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.
