Extraordinary times call for extraordinary leaders!
Our Care Assistants are some of the most important workers in society right now and we are looking for a Senior Care Assistant to lead our Bristol Care at Home team to enable us to provide the highest quality of care to some of the most vulnerable people in our communities
As a Senior Carer you will be responsible for liaising with our Care Workers regularly to ensure that they feel supported in their roles. You will conduct observations, supervisions, and work alongside the Care Coordinator to monitor staff performance and wellbeing, as well as conducting annual performance reviews and helping us to formulate Personal Development Plans to grow your team using individuals’ strengths.
At Guinness Care, we see out teams as our ‘work family’, so you’ll need to be positive, motivational, and sometimes think outside of the box. You will be the first port of call for any care staff, so we would expect you to spend 95% of your time in the field, building relationships with staff and customers.
If our Care Assistants aren’t supported, then they can’t support our customers, so it will be part of your role to assess staff needs, whether that it is coaching, feedback, or a health & well-being need.
You’ll also be the first face that our customers see. You will conduct initial visits to customers to assess their needs and work alongside them and their families to design a Care Plan that caters to their needs in a way that works for them individually.
Person led care is at the heart of what we do at Guinness Care, so we will also ask you to regularly review every candidate’s Care Plans so that the service that they are receiving is always appropriate for their needs at the time.
