What Abbeyfield Offer You

 

About Abbeyfield

Abbeyfield is more than a home; it’s a neighbourhood, a community, a family. Our core behaviours are to be welcoming to everyone, celebrate the positives, work collaboratively, take responsibility, and be adaptable to changing circumstances.

Best of all, we’re a charity, meaning that the interests of our valued staff and residents sit at the heart of what we do, not shareholders.

The Role

A one of our valued general assistants, you’re at the front line of delivery.  We’re passionate about creating a neat and tidy environment for our residents.  So you’ll help us keep our Houses clean, tidy for our residents, and welcoming for our many visitors.  This includes communal areas and may include residents’ flats and bedrooms.  

With your attention to detail and high standards, you just know exactly how to make the residents feel as comfortable as possible and put a smile on their faces. Above all, you’ll treat residents with kindness, respect and compassion.

About You

First and foremost, you will be a caring person who is compassionate, and understands the needs of older people.  Additionally, you will be able to communicate and interact well with a wide range of people in varied situations.  Naturally, as you might expect in a modern workplace, you must be able to read, write and work with numbers to a good standard.  And it is essential that you are a strong and supportive team player.

To be highly suited to the role, you should be passionate about standards of cleanliness and hygiene, and will be keen to ensure that things are always neat and tidy.  Better still, if you’re already experienced working in a similar role, may be within services for older people, then this is definitely the job for you.

And because we take the wellbeing of our residents and staff very seriously, you won't be surprised that to work for us, you must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (other than in exceptional circumstances), and intend to have any further booster vaccinations that are made available.

Rewards & Benefits

At Abbeyfield, we are committed to rewarding our staff for their hard work. Our benefits include:

  • Competitive pay
  • 31 days paid leave, including bank/public holidays
  • Comprehensive induction
  • Life Assurance
  • Pay progression within role
  • Learning and career development opportunities
  • Occupational sick pay
  • Company pension
  • Discounted gym membership
  • An employee assistance programme
  • Cycle-to-work scheme
  • Shop and save vouchers

A Great Place to Work

Located on a quiet residential street, Marsh House is located in the charming area of Blundellsands in Crosby, just a short walk away from the local train station and local shops and restaurants.  Our home offers older people the privacy of their own room and independence, yet with the support and companionship from others when needed.

Our home includes a communal lounge and dining area where our residents can meet up and enjoy healthy home-cooked meals, often recommended and suggested by our residents!  Our residents can also enjoy some relaxing time in our beautiful rear garden.

It's a home from home with support given to our residents by our wonderful team who spend time getting to know them through our events and activities programme. We offer a competitive package with benefits and are committed to helping you reach your potential through ongoing support and development opportunities.

If you’d like to work for a home that genuinely cares about not only its residents, but also its team, please do get in touch.
