Posted 24 January by Barchester Group Featured Ending soon

Have experience in care?
Know how to give compassionate support to families?
Got what it takes to provide exceptional care for our residents?
Barchester want to hear from you.

With over 25 years' experience and more than 200 care homes right across the country, Barchester is one of the UK's foremost care providers. But we're not stopping there: our mission is to provide the best care possible to elderly and vulnerable people, so we're growing and expanding to offer our services to as many people as we can.

That's why right now, we're looking for committed, experienced Regional Carers to work in our local carer banks. Operating across a 20-mile radius, you'll work shifts at a number of Barchester homes in the area, supporting the local clinical teams and providing dedicated, expert care to residents of all ages.

That will mean everything from preparing food and making beds to ensuring each of our residents has meaningful one-to-one time with a member of staff at least once in every shift. Above all, you'll perform any duty necessary to help our residents maintain not only their dignity, but also their independence.

Another crucial part of the role will be supporting the local team's care plans by recording observations, including weight, temperature, pulse, blood pressure, nutrition, tissue viability and liquid intake.

With some carer experience, as well as a sound understanding of elderly care, the ideal candidate for this role will be not only be skilled, but also genuinely compassionate and committed to the wellbeing of our residents.

Ideally, you'll have a level 2 NVQ in Health and Social care, as well as a good understanding of the wider healthcare industry. Customer service and care home experience would also be useful, as would a C or above in GCSE English and Maths.

You should also either be a car driver yourself, or have ready access to a vehicle, because this role will involve travelling up to 20 miles to your shifts.

If this is a challenge that excites you, we can offer you plenty in return - from career prospects to great rewards. As well as a competitive salary, Barchester provides one of the best rewards packages in the care sector. Your package will include:

* Free learning and development
* Mileage paid where it exceeds miles over 5 mile from you hub (main home).
* Bonus for regulator "GOOD" rating if on duty at the time of inspection.

If you have the unique qualities needed for this role, and want to work with an organisation that offers the exceptional standard of care you'd want for your loved ones, then we want to hear from you.
