We are offering a competitive salary package of £27,300 to £31,875 p/a dependant on experience to be agreed with the successful candidate.

Having secured a significant amount of new work opportunities, we need compassionate, committed, caring staff to join our team and support our service users across the region.

You will be assisting and supporting the branch leadership team in ensuring key business and compliance targets are met. Primary responsibilities will include completing weekly rosters, covering any immediate sickness or absence amongst the community care/support teams, and handling calls that are made to our offices by responding to them directly or passing on to the appropriate colleague.

The role of Care Planner is key to ensuring our community care/support teams are utilised effectively, meeting the specific needs and preferences of service users whilst maintaining defined quality, compliance and safety standards.

  • Accepting, allocating and processing referrals for new care packages
  • Accepting and processing changes and amendments to existing care packages
  • Understanding, organising and recording the availability of all new care workers
  • Identifying growth opportunities
  • Forming strong relationships with all stakeholders
  • Working closely and communicating with other members of the team, professional bodies and family members to ensure the best possible outcomes for all stakeholders

Success in the role will be measured by:

  • Ensuring member utilisation targets are met
  • Assessing branch performance against weekly, monthly, and annual targets
  • Reviewing effective shift rostering, including forward planning, in ensuring all service users have suitably allocated care and support.

Skills and qualifications we’re looking for:

  • Self motivated
  • Computer literate
  • Excellent organisational skills
  • Eye for detail
  • Excellent administrative skills
  • Understanding of target setting and performance
  • Ability to respond to change and work under pressure
