When it comes to the practical, day-to-day management of a home, this is the role that really counts.  Supporting our Registered Manager, you’ll use all your experience and knowledge to continually improve standards, develop services and manage change.  Both clinical and support staff will look directly to you for leadership.  And you’ll provide it, developing quality working practices and training that gets the best from everyone.

Your everyday experiences will put you in a position to influence key decisions on budgets, workforce development and clinical care planning.  In addition to mentoring and coaching staff, you’ll play a key role in building relationships with everyone from visitors to professional agencies and individuals - including GPs, OTs, Health Trusts and PCTs.  Underpinning everything will be your commitment to meeting residents’ individual needs.

To join us, you’ll be a qualified Nurse with a proven track record of working with older people/people with dementia.  We’ll expect you to combine your skills in staff management, training and development with the confidence to manage relationships with outside partners from the health and voluntary sectors.  Not least, you’ll need to be a natural problem solver who’s focused on creating meaningful change.
