As a Peripatetic General Manager or Regional Support Manager at Barchester, you’ll travel across your division to help us deliver the high standards we’re known for. We’ll look to you to support care homes that have been identified as having concerns in improving their services or providing support where there is a General Manager vacancy. You’ll be working alongside Care Home General Managers and Care Home Deputy General Managers to develop and implement action plans that make sure resident’s needs are met.
As part of your wide range of responsibilities, you can expect to help investigate formal complaints, collaborate with external healthcare professionals to resolve concerns and promote policies within our care homes. You’ll also be committed to getting our teams to the very best clinical standards through learning and development programmes. In the role of Peripatetic General Manager, you’ll make a real difference to resident’s lives across your division – and be truly valued and respected for what you do.
You will have experience of leading and supporting care homes through change. Whether it be issues around quality, occupancy, agency usage and staff turnover you will take a diverse approach to troubleshooting. Experience of dealing with complex concerns and complaints is important, as is your understanding of the independent social and healthcare sector.
Self-motivated, innovative and compassionate, you’ll be able to build strong professional relationships in every care home you support as well as with external health professionals. You’ll also need to have a full driving licence to be able to travel across the division. Finally, like us, you’ll pride yourself on your person-centred care.
The position is full time and will cover our South with focus on the South West so you must be willing to travel and be flexible to stay away from home where required.
As well as a competitive salary, Barchester offers one of the best rewards packages in the care sector. Your generous benefits would include:
• Automatic enrolment into our profit share scheme, with the opportunity to earn up to 100% of your salary
• 8% ER Pension Package
• Free learning and development
• A range of holiday, retail and leisure discounts
• Automatic entry into Barchester’s Excellence Awards and annual bonus scheme
• Payment of NMC Annual Registration Fee.

If you’d like to use your clinical and people skills in an organisation that provides the quality care you’d expect for your loved ones, this is a rewarding and empowering place to be.
