Activities Assistant - Care Home
Ashington, Northumberland, England
Permanent (Full time)
ABOUT THE ROLE
As an Activities Assistant at a Barchester care home, you’ll deliver imaginative, fun and varied activities to ensure our residents can enjoy an environment that is motivational and fulfilling. We want to make sure each individual can pursue the interests they most enjoy and that means you’ll have a real impact on our residents’ lives. The Activities Assistant role involves helping us to deliver an entertainment and activities programme that covers a wide range of pastimes, social activities, outings and events. Put simply, you’ll help every resident to live as independently as possible and enhance their involvement with their family, friends and the local community.
You don’t need any specific experience to join us as an Activities Assistant, so you could come from any background. What’s important is that you have a sense of fun, creativity, and the ability to encourage and motivate others. You’ll also need to have that little extra something – a real interest in the people we support. Enthusiastic and empathetic, you’re someone who’ll really enjoy helping our residents to live their lives to the full. Bring us all of that, and you’ll have every opportunity to develop your skills further with a range of courses designed to build your confidence in every aspect of your role.
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 creativity 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.
