Trainer / Recruiter

Shawnee and Douglas Counties

Ready for a change to have a better work/life balance. Would you like to be the person to educate new Caregivers on how to go out and care for our elderly community! Help make a difference in the lives of those who got us all this far in life!
Home Instead is looking for a Registered Nurse (RN), LPN or a person with at least 7-10 years experience in Health related field who is ready for a rewarding full-time career in a more causal and relaxing environment that still allows them to utilize their extensive nursing experience. In this position the Nurse / Trainer & Recruiter will assist our Recruiter to hire, train, and oversee our many Caregivers that work with our in-home clients. Although Home Instead focuses on "non-skilled / non-medical" services like bathing, transferring, meal preparation, and companionship, this position requires regular interaction with the agencies that provide the skilled / medical services for our clients in their homes.

Become part of Home Instead's mission to enhance the lives of aging adults throughout our community. Aging in the place our clients call home allows them maximum independence and reduces the risk of falls and injuries. It also promotes mental health, minimizes dementia symptoms, and increases life expectancy. Our top priorities are the safety and wellbeing of our clients and caregivers. Home Instead has offices in Topeka and Lawrence and our Caregivers serve clients in both Shawnee and Douglas Counties, however this position only involves occasional travel to those areas.

The Nurse / Trainer & Recruiter is expected to perform a variety of duties that relate to training and hiring including:

  • Create a monthly training calendar
  • Schedule and conduct Caregiver Training, Quarterly On-site Quality Assurance Visits, and performance reviews
  • Assist with the Recruitment of Caregivers by responding to employment inquiries, interviewing, and hiring in a professional and friendly manner

  • Develop monthly in-service topics to meet Caregiver and office needs
  • Develop, plan and facilitate quarterly Caregiver Meetings
