Priory Adult Care is the UK’s leading independent provider of specialist adult care services. Our aim is to provide the right support in the right home for all the individuals we accommodate.

With community-based residential care settings, as well as a network of supported living services, we support adults over the age of 18 with autism, dementia, learning disabilities, mental health conditions, Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) and behaviours that challenge. We also offer a range of residential and nursing care settings for older people with varying levels of need.

Amberley House is a purpose built care home for older people and is designed specifically to meet the needs of older people requiring nursing or specialist dementia care. The home is conveniently situated in a residential area of Bentilee, Stoke on Trent and is easily accessible from the M1 and via national rail services. The home provides residents with extensive communal space within a modern, homely and supportive environment. Each bedroom, which has the added benefit of en-suite facilities, is designed to ensure comfort and safety and the friendly and welcoming decor helps residents feel at home. There is a tranquil, fully enclosed garden, which offers a relaxing atmosphere and a quiet retreat for our residents and our dedicated team ensure we meet the resident’s individual care and social needs. There is an open visiting policy and families and friends are always welcome.

The work is both interesting and varied. You will support the Clinical Teams who deliver specialist care to our residents, of course. But you will also play a major role in making the lives of our residents as happy and fulfilling as possible – not just by showing real warmth to them and their families, but by continuously looking for ways to engage their interest and enhance their experience every day.

The qualities and skills we look for:
  • First-class communication skills
  • A strong sense of responsibility
  • Personable and motivated
  • Organised, resilient and hard-working
  • Flexible with a strong ‘can-do’ attitude
In return, we will give you:
  • Market competitive rates of pay
  • Specialist dementia training and support from our award-winning, university-accredited ‘Creative Minds’ programme
  • Full library of interactive learning resources from the Aged Care Channel in every home for personal & professional development
  • Range of salary sacrifice benefits including childcare vouchers, pension, car leases, gym membership, technology purchase schemes and more
  • Online benefits portal with a range of offers and cashback rewards

We are also keen to add to our team of Bank Nurses, Care Assistants and Support Services staff, so please get in touch if you are interested in one of those roles too.

*Under 25’s may be offered the appropriate national minimum wage depending on experience, subject to discussion at interview stage
