We are particularly adept at providing solutions which involve a period of internal organisational change or transition. Our internal communications and employee engagement interim network is market-leading.

We source only the highest calibre Interim Management professionals with speed and efficiency and ensure that each Interim Manager has been rigorously vetted to ensure they bring lasting value from day one.   

We recruit for Interim Managers in the following areas: 

Regional/Area Managers 

Responsible for leading, developing and motivating managers, which includes supporting individual and professional development, providing regular performance feedback, and conducting appraisals. Regional/Area Managers have regular contact and build effective relationships with all managers by carrying out regular visits and holding group meetings.

It's their responsibility to agree with local managers and submit annual business and financial plans for approval to the Group Director, as well as review monthly management accounts, and initiate actions plans based on improving overall performance. 

Regional/Area Managers in Health and Social care must possess in-depth knowledge and understanding of social care and health issues, along with the core principles of care, quality standards and good practice in care and community services. 

Operations Directors 

Operations Directors in Health and Social Care are typically responsible for the development and operations of the full remit of services, maximising performance, improving quality, leading success, and making a major contribution to managing stakeholder relationships. Overall you will provide leadership to managers, as well as assuming responsibility for the growth of the region.

They will also negotiate contracts and fees with Local Authorities and healthcare commissioners for new and existing services, and ensure effective monitoring and control of financial performance by Home and Area Managers. 

Regional Directors 

Health and Social Care Regional Directors will provide support to a team of managers across a specific region. It will typically be their responsibility to maintain quality care standards, as well as deliver on financial and growth targets for each adult care or supported living facility. 

Communicating local and corporate policies to all staff in the organisation and leading by example, Regional Directors will also forecast on budget related to business levels, financial and personnel needs, organisational plans and facility requirements. 

Area Support Managers 

Supporting residential/nursing care homes, Area Support Managers in Health and Social Care carry out precise operational or quality projects within a home or across the area as directed by the senior management team. They provide strong, professional leadership within residential homes to ensure the efficient and economical use of pre-agreed resource levels, as well as delivering advice and mentorship to help managers achieve the highest standards of care. 

They will additionally undertake operational and quality project work, either in relation to a specific home or homes within the area, be it through management reviews, auditing or investigations, team building, mentoring and training. 

Peripatetic Manager

Peripatetic Managers help run the home in the absence of a Home Manager or provide support and assistance to Home Managers as and when required by the senior management team. They will typically oversee the highest quality of care and prepare monthly reports collected for the senior management team.

In addition, Peripatetic Managers will liaise with residents, relatives, friends, GPs, community nurses, specialists and pharmacists, and foster effective links with local authorities, local councils, voluntary bodies and any other associations related to the care for residents.
