Braeburn Home is an independent care home offering high quality nursing care. It is situated in a quiet residential area close to the Royal Botanic Garden. It offers care to older people who require nursing and social care and who will benefit from the support and companionship of other residents.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and experienced Administrative Assistant to deal with telephone, email and general enquiries to the home.

Excellent communication skills are essential – verbally, an excellent telephone manner, and written formats including minute taking, as is an attention to detail. You will have experience in various IT packages, and be capable and competent to apply this knowledge and understanding to sector-specific software.
