At Claremont House, we specialise in both short-term and long-term care for people with a dementia diagnosis, aiming to help our residents stay independent, safe and secure in our protected environment. All our staff are specially trained to work with residents whose diagnosis of dementia means that they need extra support and understanding. We offer security and safety in a home-from-home environment.

Working closely with families during what can often be a worrying time, you will work on a 6-week rota including weekends and Public Holidays. The earliest start will be 9.30pm and the latest finish 7.30am. 

Reporting to, and supported by, a Deputy Manager, you will be part of a team of Team Leaders, Support Workers, and housekeeping staff.  Your job will also include working in partnership with health staff assessors and the independent sector.

You will act as a role model, providing support and direction to make sure duties are carried out effectively, efficiently and in line with standards - with the needs of service users being the priority. Team Leaders work well with others and develop relationships with service users, relatives and other professionals.  You will make sure there is high quality care and support provided to service users which exceeds Care Quality Commission expectations and standards. 

You will need:

  • Experience of working in a relevant care setting.
  • Awareness of current care practices and standards.
  • Commitment to delivery of quality care provision.
  • Ability to challenge practice that does not meet requirements/standards.
  • Ability to write clear reports and maintain service user records.

You will know your shift pattern 12 months in advance and we offer a range of flexible hours. You will receive full training in addition to a two week induction and will be allocated a buddy. Managers are visible and have an open door policy - team work is highly valued.

  • Ongoing Training and Career development
  • Generous annual leave entitlement
