Then you can enjoy real responsibility and the rewards to match with the UK’s largest independent provider of health and social care.
What you’ll do
Supporting and deputising for the Home Manager, you will provide inspiring leadership to nursing and care colleagues and oversee the delivery of high quality care. You will focus on residents with complex needs, so it’s vital that you can conform with the latest guidelines, take far-reaching decisions and maintain the highest levels of clinical governance, whilst regularly auditing practices and procedures.

Our highly personal, patient-centred approach has seen us enjoy rapid growth, with three new homes planned for next year, so we can offer exceptional career opportunities to people who care as deeply as we do.
What we offer
As one of our colleagues you can expect comprehensive training in topics such as dementia, tissue viability and infection control as well as management. You will also benefit from our highly regarded “Develop Me” and “Manager of the Future” programmes, which will give you everything you need to move into senior management. What’s more, we offer one of the best benefits packages around, including paid annual leave, a stakeholder pension and life assurance scheme, bank holiday enhancements, paid DBS check, child care vouchers, thousands of online and in-store discounts and free uniform.
Our purpose-built care home in Ware, Hertfordshire, opened in September 2017 and is offering a range of care services including residential, nursing, dementia and short-term respite care.
