Are you an experienced Deputy Manager looking for your next challenge?

Want to work in a role where you can make a real difference every day?

We have a fantastic opportunity for a committed and passionate Deputy Nursing Home Manager to join our Care team in Cardiff!

This sounds great, tell me more...!

We are part of Linc Care and operate in the not-for-profit sector. Our Nursing Homes are fully redeveloped modern, purpose-built facilities with en-suite bedrooms, well furnished rooms, landscape gardens, car parking and hold exceptional reputations in the area. One of our Homes is also currently undergoing an exciting period of transformation and modernisation. Our standards of care exceed CIW requirements and place individuals at the heart of everything that we do. Our recent residents and relatives’ satisfaction survey showed an incredible 100% are happy with the quality of their relative’s care and support.

What skills do I need to have?

You will need to be an experienced and enthusiastic Nurse (RGN / RMN / RNLD) with valid a NMC pin and currently operating at a Deputy Manager level. You will be a clinical expert in elderly nursing who can demonstrate strong clinical knowledge and a passion for delivering the highest standards of person centered and palliative care. You will be able to draw on your extensive experience as a Deputy Manager to make effective decisions and sound judgment supported by theoretical knowledge and have a passion for continuous professional development.

Ideally you should possess a QCF Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care or equivalent (NVQ Level 4 in Management in Care) or be willing to work towards this.

In supporting the Registered Nursing Home Manager, you will have strong leadership and management skills and able to address queries and concerns with professionalism and confidence, ensuring that an effective service is continued in their absence. You will have an empathetic and coaching approach in supporting staff across the Home to develop to their full potential. Your fantastic communication skills and confidence in delivering clear instructions to your team will be vital. Listening skills are equally important as you’ll encourage and receive regular updates from the staff throughout the day.

You will be expected to lead by example at all times, ensuring that the Home remains compliant with all current regulations and legislation, and be able to communicate sensitive information to Elders and their relatives with empathy and reassurance. Alongside your clinical knowledge and leadership skills, you will build on existing business management acumen to ensure the stability of the Home.

Did you know...?

The role will essentially involve working 9am-5pm, 5 days out of 7, with the expectation that the Deputy Manager will provide a management presence in the home on some weekends. The role is essentially supernumerary to our nursing team, however the successful candidate will be required to be both flexible with their hours of work and attitude to provide nursing cover on the floor as and when needed, which may sometimes be at short notice.

In addition to the basic salary, we offer 34 days’ annual leave (including bank holidays), up to 6 months full sick pay, enhanced maternity pay and a generous pension.

This is exactly what I’m looking for! How can I apply?

The closing date for applications is 23.59 on 4th November 2018, however applicants are advised to apply for the role as soon as possible as Linc reserves the right to interview and appoint before the closing date should an outstanding applicant be found.
