Activities Co-ordinator
Competitive Pay

Caring for elderly people isn’t just a job to you – it’s a vocation. You love going the extra mile to make their lives better and you bring a real sense of fun and flexibility to everything you do. Chances are you have an NVQ Level 2 in Health and Social Care, but more importantly you possess plenty of common sense, bags of initiative and real drive and determination to make a difference.

Your role
Delivering a stimulating programme of leisure pursuits, you will enrich the lives of our residents in countless ways. To make sure that nobody is left out, you will quickly develop an individual plan for each new resident, reflecting their tastes and interests, and will promote your activities throughout the home. We’ll give you a generous budget to buy resources such as craft materials, board games, jigsaws, cards and needlework supplies and we’ll encourage you to come up with fresh ideas to add colour to residents’ lives. Quite simply, you’ll make sure that everyone has fun – and we can guarantee you’ll get plenty of enjoyment along the way.

As an Activities Co-ordinator at Care UK, you can look forward to:

  • Competitive pay – we pay more than the average
  • Flexible hours, including a choice of day, night or weekend shifts
  • 25 days’ annual leave
  • Bank holiday enhancements
  • Fast-track career options
  • Quality training to develop your skills
  • Stakeholder pension
  • Childcare vouchers
  • Free uniform
  • Thousands of online and in-store discounts

Where you'll work
Skylark House care home in Littlehaven, north of Horsham, will open in late 2016. The 80-bed home has been designed over three floors, which are split into suites, each with its own dining room, quiet sitting area and comfortable lounge. The ground floor will be a hub of activity with a hair and beauty salon, where residents can get pampered and enjoy a café overlooking the landscaped gardens. There will even be an in-house cinema and spacious balcony on the second floor. The team will have the skills and experience to deliver the very best in nursing, dementia, residential and short-term respite care.
