ABOUT THE ROLE
As a Team Leader at a Barchester care home, 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, you’ll lead and supervise our Carers and Senior Carers with the support of a Registered Nurse or Care Practitioner. We’ll rely on you to make sure individual care plans are followed to the letter so that we can achieve the highest standards. You’ll also ensure each resident has lots of quality one-to-one time.
The role of Team Leader here also involves some clinical responsibilities, including recording observations on things like 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’ll need senior-level care experience to join us a Team Leader. You’ll also have supervised others and developed a good understanding of how to provide clinical care for the older person. As well as that, 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 always 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
• Automatic enrolment into our profit share scheme
• A range of holiday, retail and leisure discounts
• Unlimited access to our Refer a Friend bonus scheme
