Do you wear your heart on your sleeve? Are you happy & positive, a real 'people person?' Are you good at leading and motivating people?  Do you really care about older people and would welcome the opportunity to enhance their lives?  If you're also hard working, reliable and a team player then we'd love to hear from you!

Although we have used the term ‘Care Supervisor’ I wish to emphasise that this is very much still a ‘doing’ role.  The way to think about it is as a Senior Carer with additional responsibilities.  The role will also include, for example:

  • Motivation, monitoring and leadership
  • Conducting 1-to-1’s for some Senior Carers and Carers

  • Ensuring the consistency and quality of care delivery o Residential Medication auditing
  • Residential Care Plan and Care auditing
  • Mentoring
  • Delivery of some training

As such, there will be a certain amount of supernumerary time assigned to the position.  You must have excellent interpersonal skills and be very experienced.

The role is Full Time and attracts a wage rate of £10.61 per hour.
