- JOB TITLE: Operations Coordinator
- SALARY: £22,447 to £23,437 pro-rata
- HOURS: 36 hours per week
- LOCATION: Sydenham
- CLOSING DATE: Monday 29 January 2018
Our personal care service started a small innovative pilot in 2012 caring for just a handful of people in Croydon. We’re now caring for nearly 100 people over the short and long term in Bromley and Croydon and we doubled in size in the last six months.
We were nominated as finalist for innovation in homecare for the 2016 Laing Buisson Healthcare awards. Our passion is to continue developing new models of integrated health and social care; delivering high quality care to people who are elderly and frail, people with long term conditions and people at end of life who wish to die at home.
We’ve got some exciting and ambitious plans over the next few years and we’re looking for a new Care Coordinator to take the journey with us.
The Care Co-Ordinator’s role has a significant impact on the lives of people who rely on our care and support. They act as a primary point of contact for service users, families, care workers and other health professionals. A crucial aspect of the role is managing staff availability against client need and undertaking the logistical challenge of efficient rostering. This includes taking account of our service user’s changing health needs, individual preferences, geographic location whilst focussed on continuity of care. The ability to problem solve and think clearly under pressure is essential and excellent planning, organisational and IT skills are required to ensure each service user receives the care and support that they expect. As part of a growing service, you will be fully engaged in implementing new processes and adapting existing ones and making suggestions for continuous improvement.
