Heather View recruitment fair a resounding success

April 30th 2011

More than 150 local people attended a recruitment fair this week to learn about opportunities for at least 90 roles at Care UK’s new Heather View care home, which opens in Crowborough this summer.

We were able to fill 45 of our vacancies following the 3-day event and the first wave of staff will join the Heather View team in July. They will undergo three weeks of specialist Care UK training before Heather View opens on 1st August.

Sharon Mason, Care UK’s head of resourcing, said: “The recruitment event was a great success and people have been applying for jobs as carers, nurses and ancillary staff. Other staff will be recruited as more residents move to Heather View.

“It is important to us that we are able to recruit from the local area. Our residents will be local people and it will be nice for them to be able to talk to the staff about local activities and areas they remember.”

Our Heather View care home has 74 spacious rooms, all with 24-hour nurse call systems, en-suite facilities, TVs and electronically adjustable beds. We get to know all of our residents so we can ensure that we create a care plan that is perfectly suited to their needs, including any hobbies or interests that we can help them take part in. Heather View is a real home from home, with a shop, tearoom, library, cinema and hair salon. These are set around an indoor village green, which is a popular spot for our residents to spend time. Our beautiful gardens enable residents to spend time outdoors, playing games or relaxing taking in the stunning surroundings.
