Carepoint is a market leading provider of high quality care to some of the most vulnerable people living in our communities. We have very high expectations of everyone who works for us and you will need to be kind, caring and compassionate. You will oversee the delivery of exceptional care to those in your charge, whilst ensuring that the care delivered is person-centred, safe and fully in-line with the care plan.

As a Regional Service Team Leader, you will lead a well-trained, motivated regional cluster of Care Workers, driving best practice in the delivery of care packages, service implementation, and assisting with rota scheduling. We know that the care we provide is only as good as the staff we employ and therefore we are very particular about who we employ. That’s why you will play a key role in working with our central resourcing teams to ensure you have sufficient numbers of good quality carers available for you to accept new packages of care and for your region to grow above your targets. You will have a winning mentality and you will work closely with other service team leaders to offer peer-level support and guidance.

If you think you have what it takes to work with one of the fastest growing care organisations in Ireland, one that puts the quality of the care we provide above all else and one who recognises that we are only as good as the great people we employ, then we would love to hear from you.

Please make sure that when applying, you state clearly where you live and confirm that you hold a full driving license with full-time use of your own car. Although we get very high numbers of applicants for every job we advertise, we guarantee that we will contact you to advise whether you have been successful or not.
