ABOUT THE ROLEA Golden Hello is just one of the ways we ll reward you when you join Barchester in this role.

As a Peripatetic Care Assistant with Barchester care homes, you ll deliver warm, empathetic and respectful care and support across a 20-mile radius to help our residents get the most out of life. On a practical level, you can expect to monitor the delivery of care when on duty, contribute to the person-centred care planning process for each resident and record observations on things like temperature and blood pressure - amongst a range of other important tasks. The role of Peripatetic Care Assistant is very varied and also involves providing support and companionship. It s vital for us that every resident enjoys meaningful one-to-one time with our carers, every single shift.

A Level 2 NVQ in Health & Social Care would be useful, as would a good understanding of the wider healthcare industry. Ideally, you ll also have a C or above in GCSE English and Maths. Dedicated and compassionate, your passion for people means you ll go above and beyond to support the wellbeing of residents. Because you ll be travelling across the area, you ll either need your own car or ready access to one. We ll cover your mileage when you travel over five miles from your main home, and if you re on duty at the time of an inspection and we achieve a Good rating, you ll qualify for a bonus.
