Barchester Care Home Jobs - Activities Coordinator The Activities Coordinator with Barchester is an essential role to support the well-being of our residents. Our ethos is all about celebrating life, so we aim for all our homes to be vibrant, joyful communities with a wide range of stimulating activities and entertainment to suit every taste and ability. This is a fantastic time to join Barchester Healthcare, as we roll out one of the best rewards packages in the care sector. We offer a competitive salary and impressive benefits; not least an outstanding profit share scheme, unheard of in this sector, designed to recognise the excellent performance of you and your team. To ensure each resident has personalised activities which suit their needs, you will be required to get to know our residents and their families. You will tailor an ongoing programme of activities and events for each resident aimed at promoting their independence and social engagement. As a 'people person' with a warm and empathetic personality, you will have a flair for making things happen. You will be committed to ensuring the home, its residents and staff are involved in the local community, so a genuine enthusiasm for our residents is essential. You will need to be creative, inspiring, and organised. Experience within a similar role and environment would be preferable. To ensure you feel confident in all aspects of your role you'll have the opportunity to develop your career further with programmes that are designed to increase your skill base. There is no limit to how far you can go. If you have the unique qualities required for this exciting role and want to work with an organisation that provides the type of care you'd expect for your loved ones, we would welcome your application. Please note; depending on application numbers we sometimes need to close or extend the closing dates for positions, we would therefore recommend an early application.
