Potters Grange is a brand new, 20 bedded boutique care home set in a convenient location in Hertfordshire on the border with North London’s Borough of Barnet. Our core values of Competence, Choice and Compassion influence everything we do, and this makes us really stand out from the average care home environment.
Are you looking for a new challenge and want to be an integral part of our service and our residents lives? If you can bring happiness, comfort, fun, compassion and empathy into a room with just a smile then we would like to hear from you!
We are looking for someone who is not afraid to show their enthusiasm by joining in and by being wholeheartedly involved in interesting and varied activities, which have been tailored by you – and chosen by our residents.
You will need to have a genuine talent, and possibly experience (although this is not essential) for creating personalised activities that truly engage and ensure the social and physical needs of our residents are met.
The wide range of activities that you will facilitate will need to provide stimulation and exercise, and will promote and encourage independence amongst our residents. You will not be afraid to step outside of the box, but will maintain professionalism and the highest possible care standards at all times.
The role will involve liaising closely with residents, their relatives and friends, and our staff, and will also include the requirement to develop links within the local community. This means that strong communication skills are essential, with the ability to pitch communications at a range of different levels.
If this sounds like the role for you or would like more information we would love to hear from you please click APPLY below. Working with us will give you a rewarding, challenging, diverse and exciting career, where no day is the same.
This role is subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check for regulated activity.
