What our Home Managers say; 

Being a manager is all about leading people, so interpersonal skills are vital for the role but so is being able to share your vision, and explain your plan to your colleges, so that together, you can achieve the best for the home. You also need to be able to motivate and empower those you work with, so that they can complete their job successfully. I always try to be positive around the home as this not only rubs off on the residents but also the staff’s mentality, which makes for a much nicer work environment. Communication skills are another indispensable skill, as you will constantly be with residents, their family members, professionals and your team, so being able to communicate efficiency and appropriately would be advantageous in this role.
