What we look for

Great care starts with great people.

That’s why at Sunrise Senior Living we like to surround ourselves with the best. Because we know it’s the way we treat our residents; the way we make them feel every day, that makes all the difference.

What we’re looking for is attitude, an inherent compassion and genuine desire to help, plus the willingness to learn. Skills can be taught but to make a difference to our residents every day we need team members who really care.

From caterers to carers, managers to maintenance, our homes rely on a diverse team of professionals to deliver the levels of service for which we’ve become renowned. And there are always opportunities for new members to come onboard.

If you share our belief that senior living should be designed to put the needs of every resident first. If you think individuality should be celebrated, and independence and self-fulfilment encouraged in whatever small way possible, then we’d love to hear from you.

“Seeing the residents enjoy my food is what gives me the greatest happiness.”

Working in the care sector can be challenging at times, but when a family member sees positive changes in the wellbeing of their loved one it’s the most rewarding job in the world.

Show us the passion you have for your role and you’ll be rewarded with a competitive salary and benefits that range from our automatic pension scheme to shopping discounts with Everyday Discounts and the Sunrise Heart & Soul Awards, rewarding and recognising outstanding and long service with cash bonuses.

You’ll also be able to access all the development and training opportunities you need, giving you the flexibility to mould and shape your career to suit your skills and desires.

“I started as a carer and moved into housekeeping. I’ve had lots of opportunities to progress in the 9 years I’ve worked for Sunrise.”

Visiting arrangements

As our residents are all particularly vulnerable to the COVID-19 infection, we have taken the difficult decision to temporarily suspend all visits from relatives and friends, unless in exceptional circumstances. We do not take this decision lightly; reducing visitors into our homes will help protect the health and safety of residents which is our priority. Visits from healthcare professionals and for matters relating to health and safety continue with appropriate precautions.

Our intention is to follow public health advice to determine when visits will return to normal. We will continue to do our best to support residents to keep in touch with loved ones via other methods, such as phone and video calls, letters or emails in the short term.
