At Hollybank we believe in quality of life, for life. This includes supporting people with their day to day lives, as well as engaging them in meaningful and impactful activities that help them to build skills and take part in their hobbies. That’s why, on our main site in Mirfield, we have the ELMS service and Bradbury Centre. Through these vibrant and dynamic services, we offer something new and different every day that really enriches the lives of the people we care and support for.
The enrichment team works closely with the therapies team to support with communication, assistive technology, hydrotherapy, and rebound therapy, but we also provide access to a range of activities like arts and crafts, sailing, abseiling, and music sessions.
We are now looking for an enthusiastic, creative, proactive and passionate Activities Coordinator to join our dedicated Enrichment Team. Please read the job description fully before you submit your application.
The hours for the role are expected to be 08:30am – 4pm, Monday to Thursday and 8:30am – 3pm on Fridays, but this is subject to change as the service grows and expands.
What we look for from our staff:
- Confidence – being self-assured, asking for help when you need it and challenging behaviour or practices that you feel are inappropriate or unsafe.
- Curiosity – being inquisitive and welcoming change, asking questions about the way that we do things and why, and putting yourself forward to try new things.
- Happiness – being cheerful and positive, bringing your best self to work and sharing your enthusiasm for life with the people we are here to support.
- Kindness – being caring and compassionate, reaching out to your colleagues if they look like they’re struggling, being an active member of the team and working together to achieve shared goals.
What we offer:
- A competitive salary and great pension scheme.
- Paid pre-employment training to give you a great head start.
- An employee rewards scheme with retail discounts and more.
- A comprehensive employee assistance program, including support for mental health, a company sick pay scheme, and a life insurance benefit.
- A fantastic, open, and supportive working environment.
- Training & Development opportunities to support your development.
- A wealth of opportunities to gain experience in a variety of skills.
