Your role at Signature

You’ll lead individual and group activities within the home’s person-centred care philosophy, focusing on elements of wellbeing including occupational, spiritual, physical and social. You’ll organise key events throughout the year, such as the summer fete, seasonal celebrations and charity events.
You’ll be on top of local activity opportunities, birthdays and anniversaries, and local volunteers whose contact will be beneficial for our residents.
