Care Coordinator/Scheduler, Maidenhead/Twyford
£20K - £22.5K per annum plus benefits
Full-time (initially maternity cover with possibility to become permanent)
We are seeking a Care Coordinator/Scheduler living close to the Maidenhead, Twyford and Henley-on-Thames areas of Berkshire and Oxfordshire. Are you looking for a job in the care sector where you can be a part of a growing business and work with a friendly team where you can genuinely make a difference to somebody’s life?
You could be joining an award-winning company and recognised as a leading provider of homecare in Berkshire and Oxfordshire. Our company’s mission is to change the face of aging by providing the very best high-quality care to the elderly allowing them to remain safe and independent in their own homes. We have built an excellent reputation within the local community and provide a minimum of one-hour homecare visits to a purely private client base.
We have an honest, open and supportive culture and we understand that any success we have is down to the quality of our team that are making a genuine difference to our client’s lives each and every day.
We are currently seeking a Care Coordinator/Scheduler to join our friendly office team initially to cover maternity, but we anticipate that the role will be permanent following the maternity period to support the company’s ongoing and very significant growth.
The role of Care Co-Ordinator is absolutely pivotal to the success of our business - organising schedules and care calls for our team of Carers who support clients in the local area; your rota planning will ensure the smooth running of the organisation and that carers and clients’ needs are matched efficiently.
The key duties for the role are as below:
- Planning, Coordinating and Scheduling of the service for clients
- Organising all rotas and making sure that all carers have their schedules in advance
- Liaising with our clients, carers and the team to ensure our clients are happy with the schedules
- Ensure that the client/carer are matched well
- Changing and managing the schedules on a day to day basis
- Participate in an on-call rota
The role of Care Co-Ordinator is a busy role and can sometimes be unpredictable from day to day – which is why it’s such an interesting role! You will sometimes have quiet days and others where you will need to be able to work under pressure, have a positive attitude and be structured and organised in your approach to your work.
You will be personable and have good communication skills and be able to build good relationships with both clients and carers. At the same time you will be analytical, structured, very organised and logical with your work.
Qualifications and Experience needed
You will have had previous care experience and perhaps looking for the next step in your career in care or a move to more of an office-based role.
We provide full training and so prior experience in Scheduling would be useful but not essential.
A Health and Social Care Qualification level 2 or 3 would be preferred but again, it’s not essential.
Other key areas of experience are as below:
- Firstly, you must be passionate about delivering high quality service to our customers.
- It is essential that you have a full driving licence.
- Experience of using Databases or industry software/computer literate
- You will have excellent attention to detail, good communication and organisational skills.
