Recruit drive for High Wycombe home

The Royal Star & Garter Homes has launched a recruitment drive ahead of the opening of its new home in High Wycombe; at least 140 new staff members will be needed to work at the £26 million care home, which will welcome its first residents in early 2019.

Registered nurses, care assistants, housekeepers and catering staff are all needed to work at the new home, which will have its own fully equipped physiotherapy room providing residents with in-house therapy. As a result, the charity is also looking for physiotherapists. 

Chelle Daly, High Wycombe home manager, says: “I am looking forward to recruiting my team and delivering the excellent care The Royal Star & Garter Homes is so famous for. I am looking for people with a strong team ethic, an outstanding passion for care but above all people who can go the extra mile to ensure our charity can continue to deliver the best care possible.”

A series of assessment days for prospective employees is scheduled to begin from 15 October. Once open, the home will provide the charity’s award-winning specialist nursing and therapeutic care for 74 residents and include a specialist dementia care wing for 30 residents.

The Royal Star & Garter Homes also has homes in Solihull, West Midlands, and Surbiton, south west London.
