Work with us
Elizabeth Finn Homes employs over 750 people across its nine Care Homes around England. We are extremely proud of our teams and the contribution they make to the excellent quality of life experienced by our residents in each Home.
We believe in providing the very best in care and lifestyle for our residents, and our employees share in the desire to make this a reality through their service delivery and engagement with our residents. We seek to employ the best in order to provide the best, and our employees regularly achieve awards in the sector that recognise their achievements in customer care and service delivery.
Elizabeth Finn Homes offer competitive terms and conditions in all of our Homes. This includes supporting employees through their development, offering learning opportunities and qualifications. Along with our excellent staffing levels, our Homes are equipped with the very best equipment to assist the team in going about their duties and ensuring the comfort and safety of those we care for.
We appreciate that our employees may well have commitments of their own outside of work and we support them by offering opportunities to undertake part-time or flexible working that enables them to meet their personal demands as well as continuing to be part of a successful team.
We help new employees to quickly become part of the team by assigning a colleague to act as a ‘buddy’ and help them through their first days and weeks as part of our Induction Programme.
Many of our employees stay with us for their whole careers and make long-term friendships, whilst others work on a more interim basis, such as during holidays or whilst studying. Whatever the length of time we are pleased to support them in becoming part of a happy and confident professional team.
Elizabeth Finn Homes prides itself on the high standard of care we offer our residents. This is only possible by having a team of dedicated professionals working tirelessly to deliver these high standards.
Work Opportunities with EFHL
Here are brief descriptions of the principal job functions within our organisation. Details on how to apply are at the foot of this page.
As General Manager of one of our Homes you will oversee the entire operation, bringing leadership, enthusiasm, management and passion to the business. Leading and developing a competent team in the delivery of services to our residents, you will have the business acumen to ensure the sound operation of the Home and the commitment to excellence in customer care and engagement. You will also have the opportunity to be involved in development outside of your own Home as a member of the wider management team of Elizabeth Finn Homes. To be a General Manager you will have experience of management in a healthcare setting and be a Registered Nurse.
As Administrator you will be part of the management team in the Home and entrusted to ensure that financial, HR and administration procedures are carried out effectively. You will enjoy working with finances and will have a close working relationship with Head Office functions.
You will also oversee the performance of the reception personnel. Our Receptionists take care of initial communications for the Home whether by phone, mail or visitors and residents directly; they will also undertake a number of administration duties. Administrators will bring experience in administrative and financial practices and the use of computer systems, whilst Receptionists will also be computer literate and have experience in front of house services.
You will be part of a professional team delivering the best in clinical care. You will be a Registered Nurse with an empathy for older people and a commitment to the delivery of exceptional care. We have opportunities for differing levels of nurses from a member of the nursing team, rising to clinical and care management positions. All positions have the opportunity for supported professional development.
You may already be a Carer in a different setting, although even if you have not been involved in care work but have a caring nature, a commitment to excellence in customer service and a willingness to learn, then you will be given the opportunity to develop your skills as a Care Assistant. We have a Career Programme that will see you go through your initial Induction and then go on to achieve vocational qualifications. After this there are opportunities to progress your career to Senior Carer and above.
Each of our Homes have opportunities for Social Engagement Leaders. Working closely with all teams you will be responsible for organising interesting and enjoyable themed events for our residents. You will also support and lead other team members in facilitating residents maintaining their own social lives and in accessing hobbies and interests. You will have a broad range of interests of your own, probably in the creative arts in order to engage with the residents, and you will also have excellent planning and organisational skills. This is a very rewarding role within each of our Homes, working with all of the teams to ensure a stimulating and rewarding lifestyle is achieved for those who live with us.
We employ Hotel Service Managers, Chefs and Food Service Assistants, all of whom are encouraged to develop their skills to deliver the very best in food service. All of our menus are created daily on the premises with fresh quality ingredients for a very selective and appreciative clientele. There are also frequent opportunities to create fabulous celebration menus for larger social events for our residents and their guests.
Cleanliness and hygiene are essential in our Homes. The well-being of our residents relies on a housekeeping team that take pride in their work ensuring the quality of this service. You may not have worked in housekeeping before and we are happy to train new joiners in what is required. If you have a sunny nature, a commitment to customer service and a willingness to learn, we will support you to become a part of a great team.
Maintenance and Gardening
These teams ensure that the presentation of the Home and gardens are kept up to scratch. As a Maintenance Officer you are likely to come from one of the property trades, such as electrical, plumbing or decorating. However, you will not need to have a qualification in any of these, and you are more likely to have a general level of skills in one or more of these areas. A knowledge of health & safety is preferable as the role involves undertaking many of the safety checks for the Home. However, training will be given in this area. Gardeners will ensure that our grounds are always presentable and safe at all times of the year. They will also be assisting the Maintenance Officer in indoor duties at quieter times of year in the garden.
Company Head Office positions
Outside of the Homes we also have opportunities amongst our support team and head office functions in areas such as Operations and Hotel Service Support. These roles require travel around the country supporting and overseeing the operational performance of each of the Homes. We also have a Finance team and Human Resources team all based at our London Head Office but who also travel around the Homes.
