Anonymised Application – in keeping with Camden’s commitment to inclusion the recruitment to this role is anonymised and supports the objective of reducing the impact of unconscious bias.
Camden is listening to everyone, including you. We’re giving a platform to people inside and outside our community. Because, we’re not just home to the UK’s fast-growing economy. We’re home to the most important conversations happening today. And we’re making radical social change a reality, so that nobody gets left behind. Here’s where you can help decide a better future for us all.
In this role you will need to demonstrate and install community alarms and telecare equipment. This enables Careline Telecare to provide a high quality, cost effective social alarm response service to elderly, disabled and otherwise vulnerable customers in the community. Providing routine and emergency support on a 24/7 basis, ensuring we deliver a service that promotes the dignity and wellbeing of customers.
You will need to show a can-do attitude and have the ability to install all levels of telecare sensors. These will include epilepsy sensors, property exit sensors and a number of higher level sensors as well as the normal basic installations. As the need for telecare grows there is an expectation that Careline will be capable of meeting this need.
The ideal candidate will need to assess the customer’s needs and determine the appropriate telecare solution on an individual basis, often under difficult circumstances, whilst taking customer’s needs & capabilities into consideration. You will be expected to identify the most appropriate solutions for telecare to be installed into private homes, group housing, care homes etc in such a way that does not invalidate their CQC registration requirements

You will have strong experience of installing basic to more complex telecare equipment such as lifeline boxes, smoke and heat alarms, bed/chair sensors, property exit sensors, epilepsy sensors, GPS trackers etc. The ideal candidate will be confident in working with vulnerable adults and showing empathy for their needs.
You will also be required to answer alarm calls when needed. There will be a requirement for the post holder to demonstrate collaborative working with partners in the community to promote Telecare and benefits it can bring.
