About the role

The role is based in Service Delivery, which is the provider arm of the Health, Wellbeing and Adult Social Care directorate. Service Delivery provides direct care to individuals living in their own homes and in-house residential establishments across the county. The service is registered with the Quality Care Commission (CQC) and works in accordance with good practice guidance and standards.

Our Vision is to provide outstanding services and be an employer of choice with highly trained, passionate and dedicated staff.

Are you looking for a role where you can use both your creative skills and bubbly personality to help elderly residents live positive and fulfilled lives?

Activities Co-ordinators organise and carry out a range of activities both within our older people's homes and where appropriate outside, which promote life skills and social, physical and intellectual wellbeing for older frail individuals and/or people with dementia.

Working within a care home setting you will use your motivated personality and practical skillset to understand and plan the types of activities older people enjoy and will be able to engage and motivate them.

Caring skills are imperative to enable you to provide practical and emotional support to our residents and their families.

If you think you've got what it takes to do this role and have ideas for how you can plan and deliver stimulating activities which promote the independence of our older residents, then we'd love to hear from you.
