You must want customers to experience a standard of care that would be good enough for your own family. This means valuing the unique qualities of each customer and seeing the whole person, not just a list of care needs. It is essential that you are passionate about promoting the dignity and rights of each customer.

This challenging role requires a strategic thinker who has the ability to switch to a practical hands on approach when necessary. You will enjoy a collaborative working relationship with the Company Directors and staff to grow the business and continuously improve the service.  There will be plenty of opportunities to use your initiative and apply creative problem solving skills to manage the day to day service. A calm manner and the ability to think clearly whilst under pressure are essential for this important role.
