We’re on the hunt for genuinely caring, hands-on Activities Coordinators with a passion for enhancing the quality of life of the people we support through the planning and delivery of meaningful, engaging activities that promote growth and develop new skills. Our Activities Coordinators work closely with our care colleagues to support a fantastic group of people!

Our large residential service, set just off the main street in Wellington, is a beautiful home, set in lush green grounds.   It has its own hydrotherapy pool and sensory room and has a welcoming and friendly environment.  You can be sure that no two days will be the same!

Our Activity Coordinators don’t simply organise activities, they craft experiences for the people we support with meaning and purpose ensuring that therapeutic opportunities are open and available to all. You could be organising events and activities within the service, or you could be planning activities that enable the people we support to access their local communities in meaningful ways. Choice will be at the heart of your planning, and you will work closely with the people we support, the service manager and our colleagues to ensure that the experiences you create are both unique and tailored to individual needs. You’ll accurately record and report on the activities that you offer and the session engagement to ensure we are constantly meeting the needs of the people we support.

This is an amazing role for someone who is looking to really make a difference to someone's life and to help them grow in confidence and independence so that they meet their goals, have fun and enjoy experiences like no other.

We’re interested in our Activity Coordinators having both the right experience and the right values. This is why at this service our Activity Coordinators should hold a full UK driving license, be resilient, flexible and composed in their approach, be creative by nature with a focus on customer service.
