Ticehurst Care Home With Nursing is rated as 'Good' by CQC. It is an 86 bedded dually registered nursing and residential care home for older people with dementia and those who need caring due to physical frailty and old age. We provide professional and compassionate care in a friendly and welcoming environment.

When it comes to the practical, day-to-day management of a home, this is the role that really counts. Supporting the Registered Manager, you will use your experience and knowledge to continually improve standards, develop services and manage change. Providing leadership to both clinical and support staff, you will develop both quality working practices and training that gets the best from everyone.

Your everyday experiences will put you in a position to influence key decisions on budgets, workforce development and clinical care planning. In addition to mentoring and coaching staff, you will play a key role in building relationships with everyone from visitors to professional agencies and individuals - including GPs, OTs, Health Trusts and PCTs. Underpinning everything you do will be your commitment to meeting residents' individual needs.

To join us, you will be a qualified Nurse with a proven track record of working with older people/people with dementia. We will expect you to combine your skills in staff management, training and development with the confidence to manage relationships with outside partners from the health and voluntary sectors. Not least, you will be a natural problem solver who's focused on creating meaningful change.
