We’re one of the largest not-for-profit care providers in the UK, specialising in providing high-quality, person-centred care for older people, in care homes and extra care housing nationwide.

At OSJCT we care about our residents and we care about each other. That means you’ll enjoy great career development working for an expanding organisation. Because we’re a not-for-profit trust, we invest every penny we make in the people who live in our homes and the people who work here too.
This means better quality care and lovely homes for our residents, along with competitive wages and great training and development for our people. We provide outstanding care, working closely with leading experts on dementia and elderly care.
And we’re currently modernising our portfolio of care homes – refurbishing our existing homes and moving into new, inspiring, contemporary care homes too. As we expand nationwide, we need more people with the right mix of skills, passion and ambition to help us grow even more.
Southfield House is a traditional, yet unique care home offering a relaxed environment for people requiring residential care. It can provide residential care for 32 residents.

Are you an experienced carer or senior carer with a passion to make a difference? Can you lead a small team of people to deliver outstanding care to our residents, whilst encouraging them to always do their best? 

Our care teams make a real difference every day and your professionalism, teamed with kindness and compassion, will be at the core of everything you do. Supporting the Home Manager, and leading a team of carers. You’ll be responsible for planning and implementing the kind of care that will give our residents a real sense of security, dignity, and independence.

You’ll ensure care plans are regularly reviewed through continuous assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation. You’ll be able to manage your time between supporting your team effectively and ensuring the well-being of our residents. 


An NVQ Level 2 in Health & Social Care is essential. 

You’ll have previous experience working in a residential care setting with an NVQ Level 3 Diploma in Health & Social Care, or you’ve achieved NVQ Level 2, and you’re prepared to study for NVQ Level 3. You might have previous supervisory experience, like delegating tasks and supporting inductions for new starters and 1 to 1s but this is not essential. 

What is important is you are a positive role model, with excellent communication skills and a natural ability to get along with others. A supportive individual, able to motivate others to deliver the best possible care to our residents at all times. Alongside being confident in taking charge and being able to use your own initiative to resolve problems and deal with queries.
