Bank Carer Watersmead, Westbury
Our commitment to be sector-leading in all aspects of safety for our colleagues and residents has ensured that we always have full PPE supplies for all our services. Our early adoption of the vaccine means as a key worker you will have access to personally being vaccinated, alongside ‘instant’ tests, known as Lateral Flow Tests, for every day you work in one of our homes.
We are following the government’s guidelines around our colleagues working in only one care home to limit the spread of infection from one healthcare workplace to another. As a result of this, if you already have another job in another healthcare organisation and you wish to continue working there alongside the Trust, unfortunately we would not be able to progress with your application at this time. However, if you are happy to consider committing to working for us exclusively until the restrictions are lifted we are happy to discuss guaranteeing you the hours you will lose from not being able to work your second job. Or once the restrictions are lifted, please do not hesitate to re-apply for any of our roles that maybe of interest to you then.
What will you be doing?
As Carer you will be working as part of a dedicated team of fully supported staff who have our resident’s emotional and physical wellbeing at the core of all they do. You will show warmth, and compassion to our residents and their families; helping to promote their independence and dignity. Every day will be different, so you can expect to undertake work that’s as varied as it is rewarding. As a Carer, you’ll help our residents enjoy each day by making sure they get the quality care they deserve. You’ll assist with their daily living, encouraging their participation in meaningful activities as well as providing support and companionship.
What experience do you need?
Due to our strong training team, you do not need to have previous care experience. All we ask for is someone who is compassionate, has a can-do approach and excellent communication skills. Above all, you’ll be passionate about ensuring our residents have received the best care possible. What will you get in return? The Trust is a great place to work; we’ve been providing care for almost 1,000 years and we’re currently the second largest not-for-profit provider in the UK. Not-for-profit means that we reinvest every penny we make into our residents, colleagues and the care homes we live and work in. Therefore, we offer a great range of benefits, including a competitive salary, training and development. Alongside keeping our colleagues safe with PPE, daily testing and comfort in knowing all your colleagues will be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (in line with government legislation; please do not continue with this application if you have not received all doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccination, clinically exempt or under 18 years of age).
