Fabulous opportunity for an experienced, quality-focused Home Manager to manage a well-established Residential & Nursing Home on the outskirts of Derby.
This friendly, well-presented 31-bed Home, which is run by a small, successful independent care home group, currently offers comprehensive residential and nursing care services for the elderly, some with dementia, from within a pleasant residential setting close to local amenities.
Working initially on a 12-month fixed-term contract to cover maternity leave (but with a very real chance that the position could become permanent thereafter), the successful candidate will assume full accountability for the operational performance of the Home and be expected to maintain and further develop the excellent relationships already established with outside agencies and other stakeholders, with a view to consistently achieving excellent occupancy levels as a result.
Furthermore, the post-holder will work in close liaison with the carer team to drive quality standards within the Home, ensuring the fundamental standards set out by the by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) continue to be adhered to.
Applicants must be experienced Home Managers, ideally with a Registered Managers Award (or equivalent) and significant proven experience of working in a similar role.
Please note, a registered nurse qualification is not required for this post, as plans are afoot to change the home’s registration to residential only.
Outstanding communication, team-working and leadership skills are all essential, as is demonstrable experience in providing a service which meets all CQC registration requirements to a high standard. Furthermore, applicants should ideally have previous experience of managing within elderly care settings, whilst at the same time being commercially aware, proactive individuals, with excellent administration skills.
A competitive annual salary of £32-34k p.a. depending on experience, plus performance-based incentives, awaits the successful candidate.
