Deputy Manager – Cheadle

Are you an organised, methodical and passionate healthcare professional about delivering positive change? At Care UK you can build a fast-moving career whilst help our residents fulfil their lives. Tracy and the team at Abney Court Care Home have a great opportunity for a passionate and hands on individual to join the home as Deputy Manager.

Abney Court is built within the beautiful grounds of Abney Hall in Cheadle. Even though the care home is a state-of-the-art new building, it has been designed to reflect the character of the local area. The home's lounges, dining rooms and the coffee shop are named after local landmarks and historical figures, and vintage photos around the home enable residents who have lived locally to recall memories, people and places from the past. Abney Court is built over three floors, with each floor divided into smaller suites or units. Each suite has its own comfortable lounge, bistro-style dining room and en-suite bedrooms. It's a design with proven appeal for residents who are living with dementia, who prefer less hustle and bustle and like to see the same familiar faces.

The ideal manager will be a personable and hands on manager who is passionate about delivering best practice and be someone who is looking to join a hardworking and friendly team. At Abney Court  you can expect the best quality care combined with a warm welcome from Tracy and her team.
