They want to help their residents age well, live independently and maintain their quality of life for as long as possible.
It’s an exciting time to join them as they move forward towards achieving their aim of becoming the 'Market Maker' in Independent Living. They embrace a ‘One Team’ ethos and employ people who are pioneering and who strive to be outstanding in their role. In return, they empower them to be the very best that they can be.

Astraline, their in-house call monitoring centre, offers customer-led flexible solutions for a variety of services including Telecare, Lone Worker monitoring, Out of Hours call handling and Anti-Social behaviour.
Joining them as Telecare Team Leader, you will support the delivery of an excellent Telecare service to end users and corporate clients through effective supervision of staff, pro-active line management of the Telecare operation and supporting the creation of a high performing culture.
Supervising the Telecare Operators, providing support and dealing with escalated actions where necessary, you will respond to alarms generated by the Alarm Monitoring System, taking appropriate action and ensuring a satisfactory resolution.
