A fantastic opportunity is now available for a Registered Nurse (RN Adult or RMN) to become the Deputy Manager for a CQC-“Outstanding” care home in historic Henfield.

Purpose-built to maximise accessibility and integrate memory-friendly features, the home provides luxury residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for older adults across its main building and coveted assisted living apartments. The team’s efforts have been recognised as outstanding when it comes to caring and responsive support, provided against a backdrop of sprawling, award-winning gardens amid the charming Sussex countryside.

As Deputy Manager, you will support the delivery of optimal nursing care across the home and assist with the home’s operations: monitoring regulatory compliance, assuring quality in all areas, and overseeing your team’s clinical practice and wellbeing. In doing so, you will help to ensure every resident gets the very best care and quality of life possible.

In return, the home is committed to offering you an outstanding place to work and will provide you with one of the care sector’s best career packages, alongside engagement opportunities, reward/recognition schemes, and bespoke options to up-skill, gain new qualifications and advance. Additionally, a £2,000 sign-on bonus is now available* to help you get settled in.

This is a permanent Deputy Manager position, full-time (40h per week) with a days-only working pattern.

Due to the home’s rural location and limited public transport in the area, you will likely need to be able to drive for a reasonable commute to and from the home.
