Abbeyfield People

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.

We are committed to providing the highest standards of care, and we believe that great care starts with great people. Are you a caring, compassionate and welcoming person, who understands the needs of older people and is respectful at all times? Are you comfortable communicating and collaborating with a wide range of people in varied situations as well as a strong and confident team player?

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.

About Abbeyfield

For over 60 years, Abbeyfield has been a charity that provides housing for elderly people across the UK and internationally. It is our mission to enhance the quality of life for our residents through excellent accommodation in a stimulating environment to help maintain a socially active life.

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.

Your role at Abbeyfield

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.

A Great Place to Work

Built in 2017 to a high standard, Burnham Court is our latest flagship Independent living home  located in the market town of Malmesbury with excellent transport links via road and bus.  Our home offers 49 beautifully furnished, modern Independent Living apartments which residents can either rent or own, whilst being part of a friendly and active community. A domiciliary care at home service is also available should residents require additional support to lead a more fulfilled, independent life.

At Burnham Court our residents can enjoy the privacy of their own apartment, combined with the fantastic communal facilities which include a hair salon, nail bar, an activities room, restaurant and landscaped gardens.

Our team of experienced staff treat our residents with care and compassion and are very responsive to our residents’ changing needs. Every team member is valued and are themselves highly regarded and supported through regular learning and development to ensure their roles are carried out to the highest standards.

A warm and welcoming environment exists within our home where our willing team are always on hand to provide whatever help our residents need, from personal care to shopping. Our work ethic is always to put our people first and to treat everyone with the respect and kindness that they deserve.
