Activities roles

Fundamental to residents’ sense of wellbeing and social enhancement, our activities teams play a key part in ensuring the routines and daily activities they undertake are varied, stimulating and fun. Working in an activities role really enables you to bring out your creativity, adapting programmes that respect individuals needs, wants and dislikes while also establishing links and encouraging their involvement with the local community.

Administration and reception roles

Home administrators and receptionists are central to the lives of the people we support and their families. As a receptionist you are the face of your care home, greeting visitors and relatives when they arrive and dealing with initial queries over the telephone, whilst administrators are crucial to supporting Home Managers with the business functioning of the home.

Catering roles

Our chefs and catering assistants devise and cook weekly menus designed to meet the nutritional and dietary needs of our residents while being delicious and well-presented. As a vital member of the home’s staff team, you won’t just be confined to the kitchen – we’ll encourage you to get out and about in the home getting to know our residents along with their likes and dislikes.

Domestic, housekeeping and laundry roles

Our housekeeping teams are responsible for the cleanliness and overall appearance of our homes, in both the communal areas and individual rooms, as well as taking care of our residents’ personal laundry. As a member of the team, you’ll take pleasure in making sure our residents’ surroundings look their very best while remaining respectful of their belongings and personal space.

Maintenance and gardening roles

Our maintenance and gardening teams oversee the upkeep of our homes and gardens, including painting, decorating, repairs and basic plumbing and electrical work. As a member of the team, you’ll take huge pride in maintaining our care homes to the highest possible standards to ensure they are safe, are a source of enjoyment and immense pleasure for our residents and their families, and create the best first impression for visitors.

What do you need to work in a home support role with Healthcare Homes?

A caring and compassionate nature, commitment to residents and colleagues, and a willingness to learn are the first things we look for in the people who join our home support teams.

Each type of role will have its own requirements regarding skills and experience, but you generally don’t need to have worked in a care home before. You will need to have had both of your Covid-19 vaccinations though

What we’ll provide

Whether you need the security of guaranteed hours or the flexibility to pick and choose your shifts, we have a range of full-time, part-time or zero-hours bank contracts to suit you. Call us on 01206 987499 to discuss the hours of a role you’re interested in and we’ll do whatever we can to accommodate.

If your personal circumstances change once you’re on one type of contract, we’ll always do what we can to switch you onto something more suitable. Want to go back to school but work flexible shifts around your studies? A bank contract would be the ideal choice. Or perhaps you’d like to increase your hours once a child has flown the nest? A full-time role could be for you.

Whether you’re joining us without any care experience or are already a seasoned professional, we’ll make sure you have the training and development opportunities to start out and grow your career with Healthcare Homes.

From our four-day induction programme to get you familiar with the Healthcare Homes approach, to our Healthcare Homes Academy, offering specialist courses in over 40 subjects, we’ll help you develop your skills and confidence to provide exceptional care.
