Salary: £11.50/hour (£20,930 pa)
Full time (35 hours per week)
We are looking for an experienced Senior Carer with a passion for caring to join our small friendly team in a unique setting. St Joseph's is a private community house of up to ten elderly Catholic priests and brothers with a calm, welcoming and homely atmosphere.
As a Senior Carer you are encouraged to deliver 'care' in many forms from changing a medical dressing right through to partaking in a day out to the seaside. Although our home is not required to be CQC registered we operate to high standards whilst having the freedom to keep St Joseph's as a home rather than an institution.
The care team works on a rota basis to ensure that resident's needs are met and that the home meets the highest standards of hospitality and cleanliness at all times. There is a requirement to work some nights to cover absences and emergencies.
You will be required to deputise for the Manager, be adaptable, have high standards of hygiene as well as a warm, person-centred approach to caring. Flexible working is required to ensure that care needs are met.
Benefits: Pension scheme, 6.6 weeks' holiday (incl bank holidays)
