You might already be working as a Deputy Manager in social care but looking to take on a bigger challenge. Maybe you’ve been working part time and want to return to full-time employment. Whatever the reason, if you’d like the opportunity to help manage the day-to-day operations of a multi-cultural care home for the elderly, The Fremantle Trust could have just the job for you.

Established since 1992, we’re an award winning charity and not-for-profit organisation that provides first class care and support for older people and adults with learning disabilities. Today, we have 1,800 staff supporting over 2,000 residents at 58 services across Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Hertfordshire, Milton Keynes and North London. And, right now, we’re looking for a Deputy Manager to join the team at Sir Aubrey Ward, a care home that’s dedicated to supporting an active and dignified lifestyle for older people with care needs.

Sir Aubrey Ward House, a warm, friendly, and cheerful home provides high levels of personal care, including specialist care in dementia, to 60 residents. We want you to play your part in making sure everything runs smoothly. Day-to-day, you’ll help the manager ensure effective care and support systems are in place and that we operate in a fully compliant way. We’ll also rely on you to assist with the recruitment, deployment and performance management of staff. Above all, you’ll see that every member of the team is focused on providing the very best customer care.

As well as NVQ Level 3 in Care (or equivalent), you’ll need an excellent knowledge of the care industry, including the relevant legislation, plus proven management or supervisory experience. Compassionate, caring and hard working, you have a good standard of literacy and numeracy too. What’s more, you're calm under pressure, have great leadership skills and the highest standards of professionalism. Specialist knowledge of the client group is also vital, in a role where treating everyone with respect and dignity and doing all you can to help enhance their quality of life will be key to your success.

If that sounds like the kind of good news you're looking for, why not get in touch?
