Colten Care are recruiting for an exceptional Home Manager to manage staff and resources so that each resident can enjoy a dignified and fulfilling life. You’ll be working closely with your Clinical Lead and the wider healthcare and hospitality teams to ensure the quality of individual service and care consistently meets our own high standards and those of our external regulators.

Reporting to the regional Operations Manager, you will create and lead a vision for the home to ensure a philosophy of continuous improvement, encouraging and supporting the home’s journey to ‘outstanding’. Whilst managing people and processes, being a Home Manager is a complex, influential and highly rewarding role involving close liaison with residents, their families, professional contacts and multi-disciplinary teams.

There is plenty of scope to build and maintain community contacts, whilst developing the home's profile and seizing marketing opportunities in the local area. To help you achieve and be successful, you’ll be supported by our fantastic customer service and marketing teams.

So what can you bring?

Our ideal candidate will have relevant care home management experience and a good track record of performance in line with CQC standards and expectations.  You’ll have experience of working within the private sector in medium to large nursing homes and understand the commercial aspects of the business. You’ll enjoy the marketing side of the role and relish the challenge of bringing in new business.

If you are a qualified Nurse, that would be great but not essential, as you will be supported by a Clinical Lead.  A Level 5 diploma/NVQ qualification in Health and Social Care is desirable.

You’ll match our values, being an individual who is friendly, kind, honest and reassuring. An effective leader and communicator, you'll share our goal of delivering excellence in person-centred care for our residents. 

In return we offer a competitive salary, bonus and benefits.  Full induction and ongoing training provided, supported by a network of clinical and professional support teams.

In addition, the benefits include:

  • Generous bonus scheme, up to 40% of salary
  • Reimbursement of relevant annual professional subscriptions, including NMC registration
  • 25 days annual leave plus 8 Bank holidays
  • Free parking
  • Support for revalidation (for qualified nurses)
  • Support with further studies and diploma qualifications
