Senior Night Care Assistant
ABOUT THE ROLE
As a Senior Night Care Assistant at a Barchester care home, you’ll look after the different needs of our residents to enable us to deliver quality, person-centred care and support. Your role will involve supervising and inspiring a team of dedicated Care Assistants alongside the Deputy General Manager. You can also expect to support the clinical team in a specific area, such as medication, assessments, care plans or care reviews. Like everyone here, as a Senior Night Care Assistant, you’ll always respect the dignity and preferences of our residents as well playing your own part in creating an environment that’s warm, welcoming and vibrant.
You should have an NVQ Level 3 or Advanced Diploma in Health & Social Care to join us as a Senior Night Care Assistant. We’ll also need to see that you have specific knowledge of clinical care for the elderly. We’re looking for people who are warm-hearted, compassionate and committed to giving each resident individualised care and support. You’ll have the opportunity to develop your career through ongoing training opportunities, so there’s no limit to how far you can go with us. Many of our Senior Carer Assistants progress into Care Practitioner, Regional Carer or nursing roles.
In return for your dedication, you’ll receive a competitive rate of pay plus our sector-leading benefits and rewards package including:
• Free training and development for all roles
• Access to wellbeing and support tools
• A range of retail discounts and savings
• Unlimited referrals with our ‘Refer a Friend’ bonus scheme
• ‘Employee of the Month’ rewards and ‘Long Service Awards’
And so much more!
If you’d like to use your motivational 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.
Barchester is all about doing things a little bit differently. Our unique approach to the care sector sets us apart, so to make things happen our people need to be a little bit different too.
Our residents, patients and their families expect great services, so our professional and dedicated team of specialists actively recruits people who are focused on continually improving the quality of life for the people in our care, to achieve our ambition of Barchester as the leading provider of care services.
Celebrating Success is our sector-leading employee recognition programme, which is designed to recognise all staff who work hard to help our homes and hospitals meet the high-quality care and business standards we set ourselves and allows staff to share in the success of the business.
In addition, throughout the year there are a number of opportunities, such as Employee of the Month and the Barchester Care Awards, which recognises our committed people across the business for a job very well done.
We provide one of the best rewards packages in the care sector and offer a competitive salary and impressive benefits.
We value our employees
Our people are as diverse and as individual as our residents and patients. We promote equal opportunities and encourage all our employees to treat one another and those we care for with honesty and respect. We aim to create a family environment in all our homes, hospitals and offices.
We are focused on providing equal opportunities to prospective and existing employees at Barchester and display the Disability Confident logo with pride.
Learning about why Barchester is unique within the care sector is central to our induction programme. Our new staff receive a comprehensive overview of all elements of our business so they can feel confident in fulfilling their role and contributing to our vision.
The learning doesn’t stop there. Our people have opportunities throughout their Barchester career; from refreshing their knowledge and learning new skills, to continuing their personal and professional development.
We also actively encourage our people to review their performance and develop their role at Barchester by using our bi-annual Performance Development Plan. Many of our people have exceeded their aspirations in successfully completing externally accredited qualifications.
There are no limits to how far our people can progress their career at Barchester.
