Regional Wellbeing Coordinator
Job Type: Full time, permanent
We’re looking for a Regional Activity Coordinator to be part of a growing team. This role will be based from home but with significant travel around our client sites necessitating some overnight stays. We are looking for somebody who’s not afraid to get stuck in and wants to dramatically improve the quality of life of the thousands of residents living in care homes. This hands-on role involves training, mentoring and supporting the activity leaders within our partner homes to improve the wellbeing of their residents, as well as providing best-practice guidance to Managers and reporting to clients to showcase the benefits of a varied and energetic activities programme. We’re passionate about what we do. We want someone who can share that passion.
Oomph! is on a mission to ensure that older and vulnerable adults across the UK live life to the full. We believe that if you can make every day fun for those giving and receiving care they will be happier, healthier and more fulfilled. We know that when you bring together fun, fearless, creative people infused with a sense of purpose remarkable things are possible.
We’ve already achieved some outstanding results and we’ve just got started. From knocking on care home doors in Scarborough we now work with 2,000 Oomph! trained activity leaders in care and community services from the Channel Isles to the Shetland Islands. We’ve doubled our revenue every year since we launched in 2011 and have secured investment to roll out a major new service; making regular “out of home” excursions a reality for all care settings within the UK.
What you’ll do:
Quite simply it is your job to be our wellbeing expert within the region; empowering and supporting all those responsible for providing a wellbeing programme within a care setting. You’ll train, mentor and support the activity leaders across all the Oomph! products, including delivering foundation and reaccreditation training in Exercise Leadership and Activity Leadership within Care. You’ll be the “front of house” representative to on-board new care settings to our new “out of home” excursions service and will provide ongoing face-to-face and telephone support to homes, building a deep working relationship with the activity leaders and other stakeholders within the care setting to make their care homes better, happier places to be.
You will be responsible for collecting home-level impact data, amalgamating this information for homes within a larger care group and arranging and attending partnership meetings with senior stakeholders to discuss the Oomph! services, the impact on residents’ wellbeing and industry best practice. Furthermore, it is your responsibility to seek out marketing opportunities to showcase our clients and demonstrate the benefits of a varied and vibrant activities programme.
Over time, it is your responsibility to nurture these relationships so that clients get the most out of their partnership with Oomph!
What you’ll need:
This role requires 1st hand experience of working as an Activities Co-ordinator in a residential care home setting providing a wellbeing programme for older adults or vulnerable people. Additionally, what attributes do you need? Enthusiasm; supportive and organisation. Your attitude? Positive; can-do; resilient and determined. Be prepared to impress please. Whatever your level of experience, you’ll need excellent communication skills, written and verbal, and be relatively good with numbers too. Finally – and importantly – you should be a joy to have around and agree to live by our values.
