About Care UK
We run over 120 homes and day clubs across the UK. We provide residential, nursing, dementia and end-of-life care for older people. As one of the UK’s leading care home providers, our goal is to help every employee fulfil his or her potential – with first-class training and support.
You’re a caring, fun-loving person with a passion for helping older people stay fit, active and independent. You’re an excellent motivator and an inspiring leader. And you’re good at building friendships – so you can get to know residents and create tailored activity plans based on their individual interests and ability. Most of all, you recognise what a vital role activity and exercise can play in the physical and mental well-being of older people. You’re willing to go the extra mile with your team to make a big difference to our residents’ lives.

You’ll also be responsible for organising outside trips for residents and involving the wider community in the home. It’s a hugely varied role that’s both challenging and rewarding. With quality training and lots of support, we’ll help you make a big success of it.
