Position title
Care Assistant, Robert Harvey House

About Us

We’re BCOP, a charity that’s been providing care and support to the older people of Birmingham for the last 75 years.  We own three nursing homes and several housing schemes for older people in the city.

All three of our nursing homes have great local reputations - BCOP was given a carehome.co.uk 'Top 20 Recommended Small Care Home Group' award for the West Midlands in 2020 and Anita Stone Court received ‘Top 20 Recommended Care Home’  in the West Midlands.  We use an electronic care planning system so you can spend more time caring for residents and less time on paperwork.

We know that little things matter and really get to know each resident as an individual.  No matter what their role, every member of staff works together to provide the best possible support for our residents.

You’ll have an NVQ Level 2 in Health & Social Care (Adults) or higher and you may have experience of working in a care home, but this is not a requirement.
