Home Manager jobs: frequently asked questions
Welcome to our Home Manager jobs page, where we list all the latest roles across the UK.
Here are some handy FAQs for anyone interested in finding out more about this rewarding profession.
What is a Home Manager?
A Home Manager takes charge and responsibility for residential care homes in the private sector and the NHS.
As a Home Manager you’re in control of a wide range of tasks.
You’ll have to recruit and train staff, assess potential residents, plan and carry out care plans, oversee the application of medication, manage the home’s budget – and much more besides.
But residential homes are becoming more specialised, which means your role may be more specialised too.
You may, for example, work exclusively with residents with dementia or multiple sclerosis, and that will entail more specific duties, skills and experiences.
Whatever route you choose, being a Home Manager is a 24-hour job that demands a great deal of commitment.
To succeed in this career, you’ll need to have proven leadership skills and the ability to manage and balance lots of different duties and personalities.
What does a Home Manager do?
Roles can vary depending on the setting, but your duties normally include:
• Undertaking assessments for potential residents
• Creating and implementing care plans for residents
• Ensuring all residents and staff are treated with care and respect
• Managing the budgets for your home, staff and residents
• Recruiting, training and managing staff
• Overseeing health and safety compliance
• Working with other relevant organisations in your local community
• Planning and managing the application of medication
• Working closely with residents’ families
• Running activities and outings with residents
Typically Home Managers work around 40 hours a week, in a shift pattern that includes evenings and weekends. You may also have to be on call or sleep in on certain shifts.
What qualifications do you need to become a Home Manager?
Strictly speaking, you don’t need a degree of any kind to become a Home Manager.
A wide variety of people with different types of skills become Home Managers, and their qualifications can vary greatly too.
However, being a registered Nurse or social worker will normally give you a big advantage.
Most commonly, experienced Home Managers are RGNs who also have leadership skills and management experience.
This mix of skills and experience is ideal for the role. Meanwhile, some residential homes, especially ones within NHS Trusts, will specifically require Home Managers to have a nursing qualification.
So you’ll need to check every organisation’s requirements carefully.
As a graduate, you can also do a 12-month ‘Skills for Care Management Graduate Programme’, which is co-run by the NHS. This post-graduate course gives you a fast-track route into home management, and is open to graduates in any degree subject.
You can work in NHS trusts, local authorities and the charity sector.
As you would expect, the skills and experiences required vary greatly from one sector to another
How much do Home Managers earn?
Home Manager pay isn’t always structured in the same way as a nursing role, with clear salary bandings.
And that’s largely because so many residential care homes sit outside of the public sector.
However, based on market stats we can assume that the average annual salary is somewhere around £30,000.
Entry level Home Managers can expect to earn closer to £25,000 a year.
However, with lots of experience you can easily earn more than £45,000 – and, in certain settings it isn’t uncommon for Home Managers to be paid as much as £70,000 a year.
Don’t forget how much the benefits can vary between the public and private sector.
A position within an NHS trust will mean far more generous benefits than with a private provider.
But with a private provider you may find larger salary increases are easier to come by.
Whatever route you choose, your goal should be to acquire as much experience as possible in a variety of settings.
The most successful and well remunerated Home Managers are those with a solid mix of experience and qualifications built over a number of years.
