Clinical Deputy Managers and Clinical Nursing Home Managers, do you like boats?

Good, because this is neither Bounty (no mutiny) nor Bunty (no Big Bad Barry).

Coconut wrapped in chocolate, however, would be arranged, if you like it, because this employer is PERSON CENTERED. Truly. That's one of the reasons they've been in existence as long as they have (decades), and guess what!?

This position is [basically] a Trainee Regional/Operations Director position.

In the post you'll benefit from:

  • A cohesive team with well-managed on-call systems taken care of by your Managers (all 3 of them)
  • A well-developed way of doing things which we expect you to adopt and represent
  • Encouragement to keep your hand in clinically
  • Working for an organisation with a GREAT reputation
  • Flexible hours of work (full-time)
  • Free Parking
  • Values that very definitely and quite obviously put residents, relatives and staff before business and box-ticking
  • All wrapped up in a healthy dose of West Country pragmatism

That's it. It's like a mini Operations Manager post, perfect for a Clinical Home Manager (you've got to be a nurse for it) to take the next step.

Heck, it's also probably a great next step for a practised Deputy Manager (who is a Nurse) of a larger service, so long as you know the regulations etc.

Other ways I could describe it are:

  • A Peripatetic Management position without national (or even regional) travel and without homes that need turning around!
  • Home Management of a larger service without needing to take CQC registration.
  • Operations Director in waiting.

Sounds cushy, doesn't it? But let's be pragmatic.

A Deputy General Manager is going to be supporting managers with nitty-gritty like HR and Marketing and knee-deep in liaisons with external stakeholders. Plain sailing? You tell me.

Puns aside, there is also a very good reason why a liking for boats could be advantageous but is not a necessity!!

Fundamentally, if a salary in the region of £50k subject to negotiation (possibly as much as £60k) floats yours, call me, Sam Sanderson on 0161 914 5722 to find out more, or apply with CV for immediate attention.
