On behalf of our well-respected Client in the Healthcare industry, we are seeking a first-level RN Nurse Manager for our 65 bed home which is registered for general nursing and dementia in Croydon.

The role of the Registered Manager is to manage all aspects of the Home’s daily operation, ensuring that the highest possible standard of care is provided in accordance with company policy and registration with the CQC, where clients are enabled to live with dignity and well-being. Residents and families are encouraged to contribute to the care planning process, and respect their choices, diversity and maintain their dignity at all times.

Long-term stay beds in the Home aim to provide a ‘real home’ for Residents and to maintain their right to make independent decisions about their lifestyle. Residents are to be encouraged to retain as much independence as they have motivation and physical ability to do so and, where possible, to achieve more independence. All staff are expected to ensure a harmonious happy environment in which Residents can feel secure.

The Registered Manager takes responsibility of the environment including the site grounds.


The Registered Manager is the Registered Person for CQC purposes and is therefore responsible for the total care and wellbeing of clients, and for ensuring that the nursing and MS requirements are met in accordance with the policies and procedures of the Company.

The Registered Manager is responsible for maintaining and/or improving the CQC rating for the Home. The Home Manager will head the Management Team made up of the Deputy Manager, and working alongside them is the MS Service Manager and Administration Manager who will be responsible for all administration, human resources, communication and public relations issues that are of a non-nursing nature. In view of the wide diversification of duties, time management and the ability to prioritise are essential. Knowledge of IT is needed as the Home operates a computerised Care Management System, and has time and attendance recording and appraisal systems.

A staff development programme operates, and all trained staff are required to keep up-to-date in accordance with the NMC Registration. In addition, the Registered Manager will facilitate the on-going training, development and supervision of the healthcare team.

We are now inviting CV's from all interested parties.
