You might already be working as an Assistant Manager in social care but looking to take on a bigger challenge. Perhaps you have the relevant experience but are currently working part-time and want to increase your hours. Maybe you’ve been on a career break and seeking a return to full-time employment. Whatever the reason, if you’d like the opportunity to help manage the day-to-day operations for the elderly (and deputise for the manager when required), 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. Currently we’re looking for an Assistant Manager to join the team at Sancroft Hall in Harrow, a modern care home helping residents who require high levels of personal care, as well as specialist care in dementia.

Sancroft Hall specifically provides for people who need care around the clock. And, we want you to help us by making sure everyone who uses our services receives high quality care and support. Providing management expertise to a team of carers working in specific flats will be important too. Indeed, you’ll be seen as something of a role model when it comes to exceptional care practice. Liaising with health professionals, organising key sessions for team members and ensuring the health & safety of flats - all are aspects of this highly responsible role. 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.

You must have previous experience working within a residential home and have a QCF level 3 qualification or equivalent. You will be required to provide leadership and management throughout day-to-day operations, whilst ensuring high quality care and support is delivered at all times. Your management style will inspire staff to deliver excellence in all aspects of their work and to develop both personally and professionally. You should have a clear understanding of care and knowledge of all CQC standards and whilst being compassionate, caring and hardworking, you have a good standard of literacy and numeracy too. 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.
