Working in Activities at Sunrise

Flower Arranging

Our activities teams are at the centre of each home. Their creativity and passion transforms our residents' experience and helps to make Sunrise the place that it is.

The team is full of outstanding individuals who are active, energetic and passionate about helping others. They have the ultimate responsibility for ensuring our activity programme is best in class and delivered safely and to a high standard.

'Sunrise is a place where you are encouraged to be yourself and to express yourself, whether it is dancing the Charleston, joining the bridge club, or just reading the paper. If you want to do it, you can do it! There are very few jobs that offer the daily satisfaction and fulfilment that mine does. I wouldn’t swap it for anything!'
