A CARE home is looking for new staff with a sense of humour, patience and... friendly faces!

Meadowlark owners, Renaissance Care, are recruiting for roles, including care staff, nurses and administration workers.

Renaissance managing director, Louse Barnett, confirmed elderly occupants in each of the company’s 16 care homes across Scotland are looking for caring individuals to add to their close-knit team.

She said: “Following what has been an incredibly difficult time for residents and staff, it’s more important that residents are part of the recruitment process, finding people that they can build personal relationships with. We offer extensive opportunities for our staff to develop their skillset, and would urge anyone with a caring heart and strong work ethic to apply.”

Residents are involved in the advertising of positions, interviewing of applicants and final selection process. Judging on skills and experience, they are additionally looking for the softer side of the interviewees.

A good sense of humour, patience and friendly faces are top of the list for residents who form close bonds with care staff.

With a wholly person-centred approach to care, staff are offered ongoing training and development opportunities for career progression, alongside strong support from the management team.
