We also offer a range of residential and nursing care settings for older people with varying levels of need.

Job Advert Location Description

Job Advert Role Description

We are currently seeking to recruit a Deputy Manager. You will provide guidance to a team of support workers and keyworkers to ensure delivery of high standards of person-centred support and care to the people who use our service.

This will include ensuring safe levels of staffing at all times, supervising your colleges, management of medication and finances as well as supporting staff to effectively meet the people we support needs through role modelling the behaviours we aspire to as a group.
