We’re really proud that Southlands is known locally as a terrific place to work at

Dear Applicant,

Thank you for your inquiry concerning the Carer post advertised recently.

Decorum Care is a family run company with an exceptional reputation of providing the best residential care that enables older people to live life to the full. Residents are encouraged to take control of their lives and be part of the decision making of how Southlands is run.

You will be joining a committed and extremely friendly team of over 30 staff to support up to 33 residents who have a range of needs and dependency levels. We are able to accommodate people who also have physical and sensory disabilities.

Our house was once a The Vicarage for Highweek Parish Church, Newton Abbot and has been extended to provide 31 bedrooms. It is in a highly desirable and easily accessible area of Highweek with large and pleasant gardens and on-site parking.

The role of Carer is both busy and exciting. We are looking for 30 hours commitment per week with the opportunity for additional hours to cover colleagues leave. It is key to ensuring the quality of life of those who live at Southlands and with our friendly and knowledgeable team of staff. We are a progressive home valuing the involvement of all our staff and residents in all aspects of the service.

The remuneration package includes an hourly rate from £8.94 to £9.86 dependent on qualification and shifts worked. You will receive the equivalent to 5.6 weeks paid leave a year (pro rata), free uniform, training, and the opportunity to join a pension scheme.

We look forward to receiving your application, however if you have any questions or wish to discuss the role further, please do not hesitate to contact us by email or by phoning 01626 363510.

Yours sincerely,

Andrew Bone
