Home Manager - Star and Garter Home, Surbiton, Surrey

Job Description

This is a truly, exceptional opportunity to lead one of the fantastic and unique Homes of a much-loved military charity. The Home at Surbiton has 63 residents and a staff team of 120 all of whom care deeply about their work and the people they support. The Home is a place of love and laughter and this is obvious from the moment you step through the doors. We are seeking someone who shares our desire to provide the very best for people who have served their country.

We are looking for a registered nurse who has experience leading a successful team and who wouldn’t have it any other way than to be hands on and who demonstrates a can-do attitude. We want someone with a clear and constructive communication style, who can build teams and who has a confident and fair approach to their leadership.

You will be based at the Surbiton Home which is close to Kingston upon Thames, Surrey, but will be required to occasionally visit our other Homes in Solihull and High Wycombe to share best practice with your peers.

It is expected that the Home Manager:

• Selects and motivates staff who are clearly happy, friendly and positive about the work they perform
• Creates an environment where everyone feels acknowledged as valuable individuals and as important team members
• Manages and develops staff to ensure they understand and demonstrate caring relationships with the people they care for – no controlling care
• Is well equipped with enabling items to promote and support quality of life
• Supports a positive, ‘can do’ culture, which is receptive to innovation and change – a home, not an institution
• Creates and enables staff teams who provide person centred care – rather than task completion and routine jobs
• Seeks opportunities and engages substantively with the local community
• Places importance on the significance of meaningful occupation for people who live with us
• Expects high standards, demonstrates positive outcomes, and has the ability to combine person centred and clinical care

Reporting to the Director of Care you will:

• Lead the team to achieve an ‘outstanding’ inspection report
• Lead, develop and manage a team of experienced staff
• Oversee the quality of care provided to our residents
• Be responsible for all issues relating to safeguarding
• Have a flexible attitude towards your working hours to meet the needs of residents and staff
• Be responsible for a staff team of 120 with direct line management of 7.

We offer a competitive salary and pension scheme, as well as 25 days annual leave. We are also open to discussing other benefits including a relocation package so that geography does not become a barrier to you applying.

Personal Specification

Be educated to degree level
Be a Registered Nurse with current PIN
Have senior management experience ideally in a care setting
Have significant experience of successful people management
Be able to demonstrate up to date clinical CPD
Have an affinity with the Military Service community
