Branch manager – Oxford

Salary: £35,000 - £40,000

Closing Date: 31 Dec 2019

Company Name: 1st Homecare Solutions Ltd

Nature of the Company: Domiciliary Care Branch Manager – Oxford
1st Homecare is a growing, independent homecare group with branches in Oxford, Kings Langley (Hertfordshire) and Leighton Buzzard (Bedfordshire), which provides homecare services to many elderly and disabled clients – some with complex needs.
We are seeking a Branch Manager for the Oxford office, reporting to the Operations Director (who is also the Registered manager), who fits with 1st Homecare’s Values, and who can ensure that the branch continues to provide the high levels of care that this company has always sought to provide over the last 15 years. The manager will have to have an enthusiasm for both the care itself but also for embracing technology so that care can be delivered ever more effectively. For example, the Oxford branch has recently invested in technology so that carers all now have company phones which are used to log in and log out of calls and to record all tasks performed at client premises. [These details are transmitted to the branch at the end of each call so they can be reviewed by management on the same day.]
The branch is a sizeable operation with a full range of care services as follows:
• Privately funded Domiciliary care
• Local Authority funded care
• 2 contracts to provide care support at two Council run Extra Care Housing operations.
• 24 hour nursing care.
It has recently been awarded an Outstanding for its responsiveness by CQC.
The successful candidate will have proven leadership credentials, some knowledge of the local area and with proven experience of leading a care team successfully. This is a great opportunity for the successful candidate to form part of a growing business in the care industry with excellent opportunities [to further grow] as the business expands.
Job Requirements:
• Passionate belief and commitment to providing consistently high levels of care to all clients.
• Minimum of 5 years’ experience in management of domiciliary care services.
• NVQ 3 (or higher) or equivalent QCF qualification.
• Comprehensive knowledge of the statutory regulations and fundamental standards required for domiciliary care
• Knowledge of CQC inspection requirements against the Key Lines Of Enquiry (KLOE)
• Full and clean UK driving licence.
• Ability to work on a full- time basis and to work “on call’ approximately one week in five.
• Level 5 Diploma in Health & Social care.
Competencies & Skills
• Ability to communicate effectively at all levels
• Ability to deal with all matters arising in a patient and consistent manner
• Commitment to continuous learning and development
