Types of Roles
Working for Four Seasons Health Care is a rewarding and motivating career. We encourage the staff in all our care homes and offices to make the most of their skills, providing support, coaching and training where needed.
Many of our team members have progressed and developed through the business, in turn helping us develop and progress too. Read about the wide variety of roles we have available below.
Leadership & Management. Our management positions range from senior care jobs directly managing our services, to leading specialist or support functions. One of our key roles is care home manager, responsible for the entire care home including nursing, care and support staff. A care home management role allows you to lead what is essentially your "own business".
Other leadership positions including regional managers who look after up to 10 care homes, and peripatetic managers who provide interim support where needed.
Nursing. Our nurses are at the forefront of excellence in the care industry, implementing new initiatives and providing strong leadership to develop and improve the quality of care in our homes. All Four Seasons' nurses are passionate about enriching the lives of our residents.
Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP). This exciting new role reflects the changing care needs of residents and provides support to our Registered Nurses to meet a range of clinical needs and provide best resident experience. A CHAP will focus on person-centred care and the role will include routine physiological measurements, administration of certain medication and simple wound dressings.
Physiological measurements and interventions will be carried out under strictly controlled circumstances, whilst fully supported by the nursing team, which remains accountable.
The CHAP role will provide an important opportunity for those carers who wish to develop a professional role to advance their career, take on more responsible roles supporting nurses and in many cases be able to go on to train as a nurse or develop into care home management.
Carers. Carers are the most important people to residents, and their contribution can have a huge impact on someone's quality of life. You'll be naturally warm and supportive to both residents and their families, providing friendship as well as the daily care they need.
Catering. Our residents have varying nutritional needs, so our catering teams help us create diverse and balanced menus using fresh, quality ingredients. We also strive to create an enjoyable atmosphere with enticing and well-presented dishes at every mealtime.
Administration. As an administrator in our care homes, you'll have a number of important duties; responsibility for all administration, processing payroll and collecting client fees, welcoming residents and visitors to the home, supporting the manager and other employees, providing a positive and friendly first point of contact.
Personal Activities Leader. We know that keeping the mind and body active helps people stay as healthy as possible for as long as possible. As the activities leader, you'll get to know our residents and build events and activities into their care plan that appeal to each individual in our care.
House Keeping & Maintenance. A safe, comfortable environment is essential for our residents, and our housekeeping and maintenance teams help us achieve this by maintaining the high standards in all our homes. You'll contribute towards creating homely surroundings - that are clean, not clinical - and welcoming, attractive grounds for everyone to enjoy.
Support Staff. Our support staff allow nurses and carers to focus on their roles, while they take care of things behind the scenes. Our dedicated IT helpdesk ensures our systems work efficiently; purchasing, estates and finance help coordinate the daily needs and specialist requests of the care home; HR look after all our staff, while training, management development, health and safety, and resourcing and marketing all ensure Four Seasons continue to deliver the highest quality of care.
