We offer excellent opportunities for career progression, alongside the chance to make a real difference to the lives of our residents and other service users, whilst working as part of a supportive, compassionate, empowering and friendly team, which is why some people have been with us for many years.
Don’t just take our word for it, Alen tells us “I started my career at Chaseley as a Support Worker, and with great support from Chaseley, I soon became a Moving and Handling Trainer, then Senior Support Worker and now I work as a Quality Assurance Assistant. I’ve found myself a place to work and a place where I can reach my goal. At Chaseley I feel comfortable and supported in every way and I would recommend to anyone to join our Chaseley team.”
We also offer Apprenticeships here at Chaseley and Angel, our newest Apprentice shares with us “I have never been what you might call ‘academic’ and I found that I learn better by doing rather than sitting down in a classroom setting. This is why I chose to do an apprenticeship, because I get to learn on the job every day. Ultimately, I want to become a nurse and what better way to start my career in the Health Sector, than an apprenticeship in a Nursing Home. If like me, you are not the sort of person to sit in a classroom, don’t think you cannot learn because you can, you can be an apprentice and you can learn from experiencing the job in hand and create your own career path.”
If you are interested in joining our team and helping to ensure our residents receive the quality of care they deserve, then please contact us, as we have many opportunities available for people at all levels, whether you are new to care or you’re highly experienced.
Volunteering can be very rewarding, and it is a great way to meet new people and improve your social life as well as our residents. All our volunteers are fully trained, and the experience gained may lead to new opportunities and even help to develop your career.
Here at Chaseley we welcome volunteers who can offer their time to help us in all sorts of ways; whether you’re volunteering on our Inpatient Units, supporting our Activities team, completing essential admin in the office or helping to maintain the Chaseley grounds your contribution will make a huge difference to our residents lives.
Whatever your skills or availability we are certain we have a role for you and below are just a few:
If you like to chat over a cuppa about anything and everything, then this could be the role for you. We are looking for people who would come to Chaseley and simply chat with our residents, in particular those who have minimal visits.
We are looking for someone to help with resident activities or to share their knowledge of something new that could benefit or be of interest to our residents to help keep them active and entertained on a daily basis. We currently offer an array of fun activities such as gardening, woodwork, cooking and arts and crafts, we even have a fabulous art room and pottery kiln on site.
We are looking for an outgoing person who would like to develop their skills in learning how to run a small bar and café on site for residents and their families. They must be over the age of 18 as the bar serves alcohol. You will take part in reading the newspaper and helping the residents to complete a crossword whilst serving hot and cold drinks and snacks and taking payments. You will also need to keep the bar area clean and tidy and make sure the CasBar area is always looking presentable for visitors.
We have a range of garden areas that require continual maintenance and upkeep and our residents would love to have someone with green fingers who could help us to grow fruit, vegetables, herbs or even some beautiful plants that we could use as a flower arranging activity. Knowledge of plants and vegetables would be a bonus, but is not essential.
Kitchen and Front of House Assistant
These roles supports the Catering Team and helps to ensure the needs of residents are met as part of their daily eating and dining experience. The Front of House role involves setting up the dining room and making sure it is clean and attractive and assisting the residents who are sitting in the dining room. The Kitchen Assistant will help the chef with the preparation of meals and helping to pot wash.
If you have an interest in Occupational Therapies then why not consider volunteering in our very own Therapy department. You would assist our Physiotherapists to implement individual Therapy programmes for people who attend our service, such as residents, Activate Gym clients and NHS Trust outpatients, you will also learn how to assist with the equipment used. This would be a great opportunity for you to learn about the body and how certain illnesses can affect people.
We are always looking for helpful handy people to assist our Maintenance team with keeping the home looking smart and attractive and in good general repair. This could range from helping residents to put items up in their rooms, such as shelves and pictures, all the way through to re-painting various parts of the Chaseley building.
There is always a lot of paper work involved with a big Nursing Home like Chaseley and there will always be help needed to collate information and file it away. You would be trained to help sort and distribute staff and resident post, updating staff training and resident records as necessary, alongside any other general administrative duties as required to support the HR and Finance teams.
The Chaseley Trust has a busy reception area with lots of footfall. We have many visitors to Chaseley including residents, their friends and family members as well as external professionals. You would help to ensure all visitors sign in and out correctly, answer the telephones, forward messages and transfer calls as appropriate. You would work closely with the main Chaseley Receptionist and you will need some experience of using word processing to create documents and update electronic and paper systems/ processes, as directed by the Receptionist.
