Do you have an interest in improving the quality of care, can you COLLABORATE, INNOVATE AND COMMUNICATE, and would you like to join a successful, committed and highly motivated team? This could be the opportunity you have been waiting for.

We are seeking to engage an Independent Sector Care Home, Career Attraction Lead.

To support the Integration of Health and Social Care in North Highland, to promote the benefits of working in Independent Sector Care Home provision and to specifically attract more potential employees to work in this highly rewarding sector.

We are recruiting to the above post which will work across North Highland with a key focus on the recruitment and retention of our most valuable assets.

You will connect with potential care home recruits through innovative means, harnessing technology, and social media to convey the many positive benefits of a care home career and engage with relevant stakeholders to develop effective mechanisms to promote and channel this interest.

Hosted by Scottish Care and working closely with the current Independent Sector Leads, Care providers and Partners, the post involves ensuring sector involvement in the delivery of the integrating of health and social care in Scotland’s HSCPs.

The post holder must be highly motivated, passionate about care home service delivery, be able to use initiative, influence, possess excellent communication and networking skills, along with excellent IT and social media understanding and use and be able to report on outcomes and impact at a strategic level.

Qualifications and recent experience of working in the care home sector at a management level would be a significant advantage, as would care sector recruitment experience, although this is not essential for the right candidate.

The post holder will ensure the Independent Sector’s contribution is fundamental to integrated services and transformational change and be able to evidence their impact. The role requires considerable and skilful collaboration with our key partners in the NHS, Local Authority, Carers, third sector organisations and other forums.
