Becoming a Home Care Coordinator

We do not currently have any active vacancies for Care Coordinators

A Home Care Coordinator is one of the most important members of any Home Care team. It is their responsibility to ensure that there are enough carers to work the hours needed in order to look after our clients, and that there are enough clients to cover the hours requested by the carers.

But the role is more varied than simply booking carers into calls and managing rotas. Our Coordinators supervise the care staff for their allocated branch, assist with care planning and setting up new packages and even provide on-call and care when required.

For this reason being a Coordinator can be a demanding job, especially around the holidays, but it can be equally rewarding for those with the drive to succeed, making this role the perfect step-up for a Senior Care Worker (or similar) looking to progress within their career.

Our rate of pay and hours

This is a full-time, office-based role with a salary based on experience and knowledge within the industry. Pay rates usually start at a similar rate to those of a Senior Care Worker, but can rise dependent on location, previous experience and your requirements. This role is paid monthly.

Responsibilities:

One of the main responsibilities of a Coordinator is creating and managing the weekly rota for the branch. They are the first point of call for any queries or support required for care staff and are expected to effectively supervise Care Workers and Senior Care Workers, whilst building a positive relationship with both.

Coordinators are expected to liaise with Social Workers, District Nurses, Doctors and family members to ensure our clients needs are met, often assisting the Branch Manager with effective care planning, setting up new care packages, attending reviews and undertaking risk assessments.

Coordinators may also be called upon to assist with on-call and Home Care when required.

Role requirements:

To be a Care Coordinator you must have a knowledge of domiciliary care and, ideally, experience of rostering Home Care services. Excellent communication skills and the drive and ability to make decisions will put you above other candidates, as will a good use of initiative.

We require all our staff to have flexibility to the needs of the business and be willing to assist in other areas of the department when needed. All our Coordinators should also have a full driving licence with access to a vehicle.

Benefits:

Our staff are all enrolled into the company pension scheme and are entitled to up to 28 days of holiday a year. Our Coordinators will also benefit from company life insurance and private healthcare

To assist with your role you will be given a free smartphone, with allowances for private phone calls and texts, and free in-house training and support when needed.
