Are you an experienced Carer looking to start a career in management?

We would like to hear from experienced care staff who are keen to progress in their career and develop on their existing skills. You may be an experienced Carer looking for a leadership role or an established Team Leader/Senior Carer looking for a new challenge.

Joining us as a Team Leader you will be working with the management team on the delivery of frontline care service and will be leading by example, showing positive values.

These roles are based in Service Delivery, which is the provider arm of the Health, Wellbeing and Adult Social Care directorate. Service Delivery provides direct care to individuals living in their own homes and in-house residential establishments across the county. The service is registered with the Quality Care Commission (CQC) and works in accordance with good practice guidance and standards.

We currently have two Team Leader vacancies for 35 hours per week at Meadowside in Staines.

In this role, you will act as a Duty Officer, having particular responsibility to oversee and guide the Care Assistants, supervise all staff on a daily basis, ensure staff absences are covered and respond appropriately to immediate issues concerning the daily management of the home.

You will also administer medication, overseeing the administration of medication in accordance with care plans, medication records and departmental policy and procedures and undertaking continual appropriate, accurate and legible record keeping including monitoring and reviewing care plans.

At Surrey, our values and behaviours are just as important as our skills and abilities. They shape who we are as an organisation. Find out more about the values we follow.
