As Regional Peripatetic Senior Carer with Barchester care homes, you’ll look after the different needs of our residents to enable us to deliver quality, person-centred care and support. Always respecting the dignity and preferences of our residents, you’ll carry out a range of clinical tasks, including taking blood pressure, for example. You’ll need to lead and inspire your colleagues and introduce ideas and changes that will make every day fulfilling for our staff and residents alike. As this is a Regional Peripatetic Senior Carer role, you’ll work across three different homes in the region (your travel will be paid per mile). This means you’ll need to be flexible when it comes to working days and nights, bank holidays and weekends.

You’ll need a Level 2 NVQ or Advanced Diploma in Health & Social Care to join us as a Regional Peripatetic Senior Carer. With experience of providing care and support, ideally for older people, you’ll know how to monitor and help plan each resident’s care, including reviews and risk assessments. Dedicated and compassionate, you’ll be a strong communicator and a confident team player who can lead others. We’re looking for someone who always seeks out opportunities for further clinical or personal development, and you’ll be happy to complete all regulatory and statutory training as well as complying with our own clinical policies and strategies. You’ll also need to be comfortable with working some long shifts that could involve standing for extended periods of time.

As well as a competitive salary, Barchester offers one of the best rewards packages in the care sector. Your generous benefits would include:

• Free learning and development
• Automatic enrolment into our profit share scheme
• A range of holiday, retail and leisure discounts
• Unlimited access to our Refer a Friend bonus scheme

If you’d like to use your care experience and people skills in an organisation that provides the quality care you’d expect for your loved ones, this is a rewarding place to be.
