Barchester prides itself on providing a warm and homely environment and our staff are key to achieving this. Working as part of a team our General Assistants role includes a wide variety of tasks such as housekeeping, cleaning, laundry, and catering duties.
Our General Assistants are central to the daily lives of the people we support and their families, so a caring nature and good people skills are essential alongside a practical ability.
We encourage all our people to work and behave in a resident-centred way regardless of their role, so we expect you to build a close relationship with each resident in your care to provide a positive, purposeful and meaningful life experience.
We don't ask for any formal qualifications; our people come from all walks of life with all kinds of life experiences and career paths behind them, but as you will be at the very heart of our home you are expected to be reliable, dependable and committed to making a difference.
Whatever your background, you will be fully trained, however, although we can teach you most things, we cannot teach compassion, so this is an essential requirement.
At Barchester you'll have the opportunity to develop your skills further with courses that are designed to ensure that you feel confident in all aspects of your role.
As well as a competitive salary, Barchester provides one of the best rewards packages in the care sector, including:
