Join Our Team – Careers at Southern Healthcare


At Southern Healthcare, we believe in helping our team to reach their full potential.

Each of our four homes – The Old Rectory in Exeter, Parkwood House in Plymouth, The Seaton Nursing Home and Sefton Hall in Dawlish – pride themselves on being unique settings with a powerful, shared ethos.

And we understand that close, quality relationships between the team and residents are crucial to making our homes happy places for those who live and work in them.

Our passion filters down from Southern Healthcare’s Managing Director, Geoffrey Cox. Geoffrey is dedicated to driving up standards in nursing and residential care and helped to found the Devon Kite Mark which has become a benchmark of best practice for the industry.

On a personal level, Geoffrey also loves to get involved in activities for the residents – especially the provision of live music.

We are a friendly and dynamic team – everything we do is for the benefit or our residents, but we like to have fun while we are doing it. As well as providing exceptional care, we create meaningful activities for our residents, such as themed events, trips out and animal therapy. And we love to include families and friends wherever possible.

We offer competitive rates of pay, including staff bonuses, and run our own bespoke training sessions to develop skills and enhance career prospects.

We are always happy to hear from nursing and care professionals who are fun-loving and passionate about providing exceptional care for the elderly. We are looking for individuals who want to see their work as more than just a job, and to be instead, part of a dynamic, forward-looking team. In return, we offer a stimulating, person-centred environment with a strong emphasis on team wellbeing and development.

We are very honoured that our team has been recognized for the amazing work that we all do.

Currently, we have two Homes that have received ‘Overall Outstanding’ from the Care Quality Commission

  • Three of our Homes hold the Eden Alternative UK & Ireland Certificate of Recognition and feature on the Eden Alternative register of Homes
  • Our Activities Team at Parkwood House in Plymouth is award-winning, they won the Best Activity Coordinators Award at the Celebrating Excellence in Care Awards 2017. They have been recognised for the innovative and meaningful activities that they provide for our residents at Parkwood
  • Sefton Hall holds the Butterfly Kitemark National Award from Dementia Care Matters. The Butterfly Model is based on how ‘feelings matter most’ in dementia care. We are very proud of this award and the team has worked very hard to achieve this.
