We’re looking for someone exceptional!

If you are a quality Manager driven with ambition, we’d love to hear from you.

Our 41 bed residential care home in Surrey is seeking an exceptional leader.  Our vision is to find a like-minded individual who shares our values in striving to become the best, develop high quality nurturing care and inclusive team working.

We already have a committed and diverse team of staff working to provide the best care for our residents.  Managing our Care Home will require someone who is friendly, approachable warm-hearted and patient whilst also able to balance the commercial aspects of a care business.  The ideal candidate will have a nursing qualification and extensive experience within a care home environment.

As a growing Healthcare company you will work closely with a small team of Directors in a flat management structure.  You will be responsible for achieving and maintaining high occupancy levels; compliance in all relevant regulatory requirements; maintaining quality assurance; proactivity in analysing and improving services, systems and resources and ensuring the Home is led by cost effective financial performance.

You will lead and support a varied team of staff including the administration, finance and diversional therapy functions, all to ensure the Home as a whole operates successfully, coherently and profitably. Our Care Home Manager will need to deliver a diverse range of duties and so time management, prioritising and exemplary communication at all levels should come naturally.

If you are looking for career progression and satisfaction in a senior role but still want to enjoy feeling motivated and passionately involved with residential care, we’d love to hear from you.

To summarise our ideal applicant will have:

  • experience in maintaining a home's occupancy
  • previous acumen in quality management and sound knowledge of the Fundamental Standards and Care legislation requirement to register as Registered Manager with CQC

  • self motivated, team player
  • and in conjunction with the Directors: developing policy; formulation of direction and strategy; decision making.

Remuneration Package:  If you tick all the boxes, we anticipate the successful candidate could earn £46,000 pa ; when occupancy reaches 36 a further uplift to £47,000pa ; when full occupancy is maintained an additional bonus of £1,250pa will be awarded.
