Job title: Activities Co-ordinator
Company: Orders of St. John Care Trust
Job description: Activities Co-ordinator
Activities Coordinator- Seymour House, Chippenham.
Various days 30 hours per week and alternative weekends.
As an Activities Coordinator, you are absolutely essential to the well-being of the residents that we support. At the Trust we aim for our homes to be vibrant, joyful communities with a wide range of stimulating activities and entertainment available, with something to suit every taste and ability
You will be required to get to know our residents, and their families; to tailor an on-going programme of activities and events aimed at promoting their independence and social engagement, and to ensure everyone has personalised involvement that suits their needs.
What experience do you need?
You will be joining a very committed team, led by a supportive management team. So albeit that someone with experience working with older people in a residential setting would be beneficial, it isnt essential. Whats more important is that you have experience creating, organising and delivering great events, engaging with your local community.
What will you get in return?
You’ll be working for one of the largest not for profit care providers in the UK. A great advantage of being a large organisation is that we can offer competitive pay, generous benefits and training to reward you for taking such good care of our residents.
Here’s an overview of some of the benefits you could get for working for us;
- Company pension
- Company sick pay (after probation)
- Weekend rates
- Life Assurance
- 28 days holiday entitlement (including bank holidays) pro rata
- Free uniform
- Free DBS
- Free car parking
- Employee Assistance Programme and Health and Wellbeing Platform
- Comprehensive Induction, ongoing training and development
- Refer a Friend bonus scheme paying £500 for carer recommendations
- “My Rewards” offering you discount on shopping, days out, restaurants and much more.
Our commitment to be sector-leading in all aspects of safety for our colleagues and residents has ensured that we always have full PPE supplies for all our services. Our early adoption of the vaccine means as a key worker you will have access to personally being vaccinated, alongside ‘instant’ tests, known as Lateral Flow Tests, for every day you work in one of our homes.
We are following the government’s guidelines around our colleagues working in only one care home to limit the spread of infection from one healthcare workplace to another. As a result of this, if you already have another job in another healthcare organisation and you wish to continue working there alongside the Trust, unfortunately we would not be able to progress with your application at this time. However, if you are happy to consider committing to working for us exclusively until the restrictions are lifted we are happy to discuss guaranteeing you the hours you will lose from not being able to work your second job. Or once the restrictions are lifted, please do not hesitate to re-apply for any of our roles that maybe of interest to you then.
