Job Description

If you have a passion for caring and the motivation to help us achieve our ambitions, we would love to hear from you.

As a Development Lead you’ll make sure that the Home Instead CAREGivers delivering our varied range of care services in the community have the training and development they need to provide the best person-centred care for our residents and patients. As an organisation, we put a huge emphasis on training and development, and you’ll be pivotal in ensuring our provision always is second to none. 

Your specific responsibilities will span the part of the recruitment of CAREGiver staff, training delivery, staff inductions and the learning/development journey, which makes this a very varied role. You can expect to be involved with everything, from planning training calendars, championing e-learning and supporting employees through their induction, to attending conferences and analysing our ongoing training needs.

This is a demanding but incredibly rewarding role that will see you delivering exceptional training and, in turn, having a lasting impact on the lives of our teams, our residents and our patients.

We encourage applications from all sections of the community as we want to reflect the neighbourhoods in which we work. Home Instead Senior Care is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of adults and expects all staff to share this commitment. This role is subject to DBS enhanced disclosure.


As a Development Lead you should have a minimum of a Level 3 Diploma in Health & Social Care (or at least 3 years experience of working in the care sector) and a good working knowledge of legislative requirements within the care industry. We’ll also want to see some experience of coaching and mentoring others, excellent communication skills and the ability to work well as part of a team. 

With a flexible approach and a full, clean driving licence, you’ll be comfortable working out in the field at our clients homes and undertaking shift patterns that may include some evenings, weekends and early mornings – we want to give everyone the best possible access to our training. Strong organisational skills and plenty of initiative are also essential.

I'm Interested!
