At Summerset we are here to bring the best of life to our residents. To do this, we know we need to take care of our people to form a team who are strong enough to care, operate as one team, and strive to do their best.
Now, we are looking for an exceptional Caregiver to join our Dunedin village. Ideally you will have experience in aged care and may even have Caregiver qualifications too.
But more important to us will be your genuine love for all kinds of people from all walks of life.
This is a busy and diverse role, assisting residents with their day-to-day activities such as showering, delivering meals and much more.
Therefore, you will need to be resilient, kind and patient, while a good level of fitness will prove useful for delivering the best in personal care.
You will also need to be a team player and able to manage your time well in order to complete all your tasks. You will also have the ability to work on a rostered basis covering morning, afternoon and night shifts, Monday to Sunday.
You must also be available to cover sick and annual leave. This is position is not a rotating roster, rather it is one that is rostered in to gaps to ensure adequate caregiving cover across the week.
Level 2 career force qualification is required.
To recognise the important work that you do for our residents, we offer the following :
If you, or someone you know, are strong enough to care, then we would love to hear from you. Please note that although we welcome applications from overseas candidates that do not have the right to work in New Zealand, due to NZ Immigration requirements it is unlikely that we will be able to support a visa application for this role.
Please note that this role may close early due to an increased number of applications - apply as soon as possible to avoid disappointment!
