About the role:

Here at Signature, we recognise that great managers who can lead and coach their people and build engaged and empowered teams will make extraordinary differences to the lives of our residents. This takes time and effort, so within Signature all of our Care Manager roles are not included in our shift rotas. Instead we expect our Care Managers to be on the floor working with their staff, coaching, mentoring, instructing and leading by example to ensure we deliver the best possible care.

  • Working in partnership with HR to ensure that all members of staff are effectively inducted into Signature and receive the ongoing training and development support required to meet legal requirements, perform well in their current role and fulfil their potential. This includes:
    • Completing all mandatory training and relevant updates within the required timeframes
    • Providing mentoring and coaching support to develop individuals in role and to complete further studies
  • Carrying out effective and timely recruitment to ensure the appropriate skill-mix to maintain service for current and future residents.
  • To act as a role model for all staff and to ensure that a consistent high standard of care is provided.

  • An experienced people manager with the leadership skills to engage and motivated others to deliver exceptional care.
  • Kind and caring disposition with a real commitment to delivering the highest level of care at all times.
  • The ability to prioritise workload and be able to work under pressure.
