11 May New Luxury Cannock Care Home to Create 50 Jobs for Local People
Cannock’s newest care home, Littleton Lodge located on Bishop Street in Hednesford, is recruiting for up to 50 team members ahead of its eagerly awaited launch later this year. Positions available include care management, care assistants and kitchen and domestic staff. The new team will complete a thorough induction period before the home opens in April when they will provide first-rate residential and dementia care.
Littleton Lodge which has benefitted from a £10m investment, will be provider Ideal Carehomes 23rd home and boasts a lavish cinema, an airy botanical room leading onto landscaped gardens, a traditional tea shop, beauty parlour and opulent Sky Bar. The caring staff team will be focussed on creating a welcoming and fulfilling lifestyle for the people who live at Littleton Lodge via their round-the-clock support, regular and varied activities, healthy and nutritious food and laundry and housekeeping service.
Head of Development and Engagement, Sarah Colling, said, “It is a great time to join the Ideal Carehomes family and even to start a career in social care if you are new to the sector. Over the course of the pandemic, the media has really shone a light on how amazing care workers are and it is wonderful to see them get the recognition they deserve. Our annual Ideal Care Awards is always flooded with nominations and this year will be no exception!
We have unique training and development initiatives through our Ideal Academy, including industry-leading training, career progression opportunities via a range of learning resources such as E-learning and specialist workshops. We have recently launched our ‘future managers’ training programme – there are always things to get involved in and opportunities to progress for the right people.’
Staff will have access to some of the most innovative and supportive care technology in the industry and will be provided with a recently updated uniform, offered in a range of colours determined by job role, as well as all the PPE they require. Ideal Carehomes will also facilitate the Covid-19 vaccine for any new members of staff who have not yet received the jab.
Managing Director, Stacey Linn, said: ‘We are very excited to be opening our first luxury care home in Cannock and are keen to hear from people living in the local community who are seeking fulfilling careers within social care. Whilst our environments are second to none, it is our staff team who make our homes the best places to live and who help our residents to retain their independence whilst supporting them to live an active lifestyle. We are looking for people who really want to make a difference and would like to be part of the Littleton Lodge story right from the very start’.
