Seaside Care Homes launches recruitment drive as it prepares to open second site

Seaside Care Homes, the Essex-based provider of residential care for people with complex needs, has launched an ambitious recruitment drive, as it prepares to open its second site in Clacton-on-Sea next month.

The organisation, founded in 2008 by Amanda Owen and Sarah Crow, will create more than 10 jobs within the area, which could increase to up to 30 positions depending on the individual needs of the people in their care. 

The support worker roles will be based at residential care home, Marella Lodge – a brand-new £500,000 facility for people aged between 18 and 64. The residential setting, which has been designed and developed to the highest standard, offers a fully accessible, home-from-home environment for four individuals with complex health needs and can be adapted to meet their requirements.

The new employees will be responsible for providing a stimulating, creative and varied environment at Marella Lodge – conducive with promoting residents’ individual development and maximising their quality of life and independence. They will be supported by specialist nursing staff and a clinical coordinator, together with a highly skilled management team, led by Managing Director Amanda Owen – former Children's Matron at Colchester General Hospital.

Amanda commented: “The opening of a new residential care home, specifically designed to meet the needs of young people with complex health needs, is another significant milestone for Seaside Care Homes. The much-needed home will perfectly complement our existing facility also in Clacton and comes at a time when demand for such a facility is extremely high. 

“We are looking to grow our talented team and bring onboard like-minded individuals who reflect our values and have a very care-centric approach to their work – people who are passionate and committed about ensuring the best possible outcomes for the young people in our care. These individuals may have limited experience in a social care setting. Most importantly, they must demonstrate empathy, understanding and patience.”
