Job Type: Full Time
As our new care coordinator you will be responsible for organising and coordinating our team of care assistants and making sure our customer care and support is covered appropriately and safely and to the highest possible standard. Your main responsibilities will be:

We are looking for someone really special, someone who is really excited to get involved with a great team and is ambitious and outgoing! To be successful in this role, we really need you to:
- To understand the needs of our customers and maintain their files and computerised records to make sure they are up to date at all times.
- You will be meeting new care workers and start their work as quickly as possible. It's really essential to establish and maintain good working relationships with customers and with colleagues.
