Care Team Leader
What Abbeyfield Offer You
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.
Each resident is unique. The care and support they need is individualised and personal to them. You’ll lead by example, treating people with kindness and compassion. Your sensitive and respectful approach ensures residents maintain their dignity and feeling of self worth.
Your caring input helps to make things as easy and comfortable as possible for our residents. You contribute to residents' emotional wellbeing by getting to know them personally and supporting them to participate in social activities and events. You see the benefit of this stimulation by getting involved with planning, organising and delivering these home activities and functions.
To ensure each resident's needs are met, you’ll lead with the responsibility of regular monitoring of their health, care and social needs, plus the preparation, implementation and review of their personal care plan. This involves supervising other team members and liaising with people involved in their care, as well as with the residents themselves, to ensure their needs and wishes are at the centre of the care we provide.
Experienced in health or social care, ideally working with older people, you’ll be familiar with CQC requirements. Ideally you will be qualified to QCF Level 3 in Health & Social Care (or equivalent) or willing to undertake training to Level 3.
With more seniority comes more responsibility, so you’ll be keen to show your management skills and take charge for an entire shift, be able to work on your own initiative, and cope under pressure in a diverse and changing environment.
So if you are as passionate about care as you are about leading a team and taking responsibility, this could be the job for you.
