Activites Co-ordinator

Location: Hayward Care Centre, Devizes, Wiltshire

Pay rate: £10.10 per hour 

Contracted hours: 25 hours per week

ABOUT THE ROLE

Our homes are vibrant, joyful communities and an important part of creating such a happy atmosphere is the wide range of stimulating activities and entertainment we provide for our residents. As an Activities Coordinator / Wellbeing Assistant, you’ll be responsible for creating and delivering an ongoing programme of activities and events which engage residents, promote their independence and are tailored to meet their individual needs. Many of our residents are living with various age-related conditions, but still strive to lead a full and active life. You’ll get to know them, find out what they love to do, or perhaps used to love to do, and find ways of creating new memories with them. In joining us, you’ll also become part of our extended family. You’ll work alongside other team members who are passionate about providing care, warmth and kindness to all those who live and work in our homes.

Hayward Care Centre is an 80 bed Care Home situated in Devizes. The home offers care home and nursing in a comfortable, homely setting. We’re rated 9.5 by Carehome.co.uk and Good by the Care Quality Commission.

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 and daily testing.  Here are some of the other benefits you’ll enjoy as a valued member of our team: * Company pension * Company sick pay (after probation) * Weekend rates * Life Assurance * 28 days holiday entitlement (including bank holidays) pro rata * Free uniform * Free DBS * Free car parking * Employee Assistance Programme and Health and Wellbeing Platform * Comprehensive Induction, ongoing training and development * Refer a Friend bonus scheme paying £500 for carer recommendations * Blue Light Card and ‘My Rewards’ programme offering you discounts on shopping, days out, restaurants and much more

ABOUT YOU

You’ll either be experienced in creating, organising and delivering events and activities or have worked with elderly people in a residential setting, but either way you’ll be confident in engaging with our residents to understand what they love to do as a group or on a one-to-one basis. You’ll be comfortable in engaging with the local community, bringing people in to enhance your activities programme as necessary, to ensure our residents get the added stimulation of life outside of the home. You’ll also encourage team members, relatives and friends to participate in the activities and events you organise. If you think you have the right skills and attitude we’re looking for as an activities coordinator within our care homes, then you could be the next to join us.
