What is the best thing about working for Four Seasons Health Care Group?

It is the 'people'. I work with the best colleagues that I could possibly wish for and I adore our wonderful residents and their families. 

What is your role and why do you love it?

I work as Care Home Administrator. I absolutely love my job, it is varied and challenging as no two days are ever the same. I love helping people and making a difference to people's lives. I love that my work is a seamless part of my life and I never get up in the morning and think, ''Oh no I have to go to work!''. I work in a fast paced environment where every day presents a new challenge and there is never a dull day, I love helping people and being part of a great team.

How would you describe the culture of the company?

Our working environment is very caring. We are in this profession to care for our residents but as a team we also care and support each other every day. The team that I am blessed to be part of are my second family, we have amazing camaraderie.

What does a typical day look like?

My typical day consists of reporting, processing wages, booking appointments, running a very busy reception, taking telephone calls, greeting and assisting visitors, responding to e-mails, new resident enquiries and show people around, general and financial administration and being a great listener.

What did you do prior to joining Four Seasons Health Care Group?

I was a Valuation Manager at a High Street Estate Agency. Much as I enjoyed the role I always knew that I needed a vocation where my role could really make a difference to other people's lives every day.

Is there any aspect of your role that makes you feel empowered?

Working as an Administrator I am also the Home Manager's right hand person. I support my Manager in her role and assist in the all-round smooth running of the home which helps me to feel empowered in my role. 

How do you want to progress and grow?

I have learnt an awful lot already about the Care sector since joining Four Seasons Health Care Group but I also have a lot more to learn which I completely embrace. The more skills and knowledge that I build upon then the more I will have to contribute to my role.

My work does give me a great sense of pride and it's amazing when our residents and their families express to us their heartfelt thanks and appreciation for what we do.

An employee discount scheme, free uniform where applicable, childcare vouchers and a bespoke development programme. The main benefit for me is that I am really, really happy. I genuinely love everyone that I work with and going to work is a pleasure and not a chore.

Rewarding.
