New £10.5 million care home to bring 120 jobs to Kenilworth

Team work - could you be unwrapping a new career at Castle Brook?

Around 120 jobs will be available at a new £10.5 million state-of-the-art care home opening in Kenilworth.

Recruitment has now started for Castle Brook on Common Lane, a purpose-built development specialising in innovative dementia care, which will welcome the first residents in December 2016.

Run by Warwickshire-based charity WCS Care, one of only two care home groups in England to have four homes recognised as 'outstanding' by the CQC, it will be home to 84 people and feature ensuite rooms throughout, household-style living, café, spa, cinema, salon and a shop.

Castle Brook will also be one of only a small number of homes in Warwickshire to offer double apartments with their own kitchenette for residents wanting to live together or have extra space for visiting relatives.

There will be a number of different roles available at the home including care management, carers, hostess, lifestyle coach, laundry manager, and housekeeping assistants.

Tammy Hulley, Service Manager at WCS Care, explained why the roles would suit a certain type of person: 'We're looking for experienced team members who always put residents first and are committed to delivering the highest quality of care.

'If your personal qualities shine through, you're a great communicator, energetic, can work hard under pressure, and can be understanding and empathetic towards others, we'd like to hear from you.'

Christine Asbury, Chief Executive at WCS Care, added: 'At WCS Care, residents are in charge of their life and we're here to support them with high quality care 24 hours a day, seven days a week - ultimately, we want to ensure that every day is a day well lived.

'Our values are fundamental to helping us achieve this - so if joining an organisation where you can play, make someone's day, be there and choose your attitude sounds appealing, you'll fit right in.'

Show apartments will be available to view from 05 September 2016 with a number of open days planned throughout the autumn.
