65 jobs on offer at new £12million Droitwich care home, due to open later this year

UP TO 65 jobs will be created when a new care home opens in Droitwich later this year.

Woodland View, on Woodland Way, is looking for people to fill a variety of roles, including care management, care assistants, kitchen and domestic staff.

The new team – when formed – will complete a thorough induction period before the home opens for 66 residents.

Ideal Carehomes has invested £12million in Woodland View which boasts a lavish cinema, botanical room, landscaped gardens and a traditional tea shop with balcony.

It also has a beauty parlour and a sky bar.

The caring staff team will be focussed on creating a welcoming and fulfilling lifestyle for the people who live at Woodland View via their round-the-clock support, regular and varied activities, healthy and nutritious food and laundry and housekeeping service.

Head of development and engagement, Sarah Colling, said, “It is a great time to join the Ideal Carehomes family and even to start a career in social care if you are new to the sector.

“Over the course of the pandemic, the media has really shone a light on how amazing care workers are and it is wonderful to see them get the recognition they deserve.”

The Ideal Academy will offer training, development and career progression opportunities via a range of learning resources, including E-learning and specialist workshops.

Ideal Carehomes has recently launched its ‘future managers’ training programme to find the right people for the right roles.

Staff will be provided with uniforms and all the PPE they need, along with the Covid-19 vaccine if they have not yet had it.

Managing Director, Stacey Linn, said: ‘We are very excited to be opening our first luxury care home in Droitwich Spa and are keen to hear from people living in the local community who are seeking fulfilling careers within social care.

“Whilst our environments are second to none, it is our staff team who make our homes the best places to live, and who help our residents to retain their independence whilst supporting them to live an active lifestyle.

“We are looking for people who really want to make a difference and would like to be part of the Woodland View story right from the very start’.

Woodland View is due to open later this year and when it will welcome new residents for short and long term placements.
