Job Advert Role Description

The Vines is a warm and friendly home located in the small town of Crowborough, East Sussex with close proximity to Royal Tunbridge Wells, the Sussex Coast and the Ashdown Forrest. The Vines is a 17-bedroom specialist residential unit which provides a step-down service for individuals who have suffered progressive neurological conditions or an acquired brain injury. We are a mid to long term placement which aims to promote independence and to support each resident to achieve their goals. 

Our residents are provided with numerous opportunities to access the wider community including specialised swimming sessions, bowling, memory cafes, cinemas and choirs with the intention of supporting our resident to rehabilitate and live fulfilled lives. We're looking for people to join our team who wish to continue this work for our residents such as one of our residents below…

Prior to their brain injury one of our service users travelled and lived around the world as part of their job. When our cooking club, Theme Night Thursday’s, was introduced they showed a clear interest and passion for other cultures. This resident had previously been reserved and keen to spend time in their bedroom but became a regular and assisted in chopping the vegetables for our theme night, with the aim that this would help improve their fine motor skills as part of their neuro-rehabilitation. 

At the Vines, we provide 24 /7 support to all individuals by offering a flexible and responsive approach to our residents’ care. We celebrate and support what the individuals are able to do, when they are able to do so, whilst preparing for ways they can continue to excel as their condition progresses. Staff’s talent is developed and training provided to ensure that they can support those we care for by administering medication, providing personal care, cleaning, supporting with activities, medical appointments, supporting with family visits and accessing the community. 

We’re looking for someone who is kind, caring, understanding and passionate about providing great individual and personalised care. We provide all new colleagues with training to support people and their needs so previous experience in a care role isn’t essential but would be beneficial.

What we’d like from you:

  • Excellent communication skills
  • Effective organisational capability
  • Great team player
  • Flexibility to respond to the changing needs of those who we support
  • Strong “can do” attitude

​What we’d like to give you:

  • A competitive salary
  • Enhanced disclosure cost coverage
  • Comprehensive induction and commitment to ongoing training
  • 28 days annual leave including bank holidays
  • Online benefits and cashback rewards
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Pension options
