Registered manager

About the job

“Being a registered manager can be challenging; you need to approach things with a positive attitude and see the best in people. If you have that drive and determination, it’s such a rewarding career”.

As a registered manager in adult social care you’ll be responsible for a care service. This could be working with adults of all ages with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, dementia, or mental health conditions. You could be managing a service that supports people to live independently in their own home, in a care home, or in supported living accommodation. As a registered manager your role is likely to include overseeing the day to day running of a care service, leading and managing staff so they can perform their roles safely and to the best of their ability, managing budgets and contracts, making strategic decisions about the future and growth of your care service and leading on specific projects or clinical areas.

Lou – registered manager

Meet Lou, a multi-site registered manager for two care homes in Newton Abbot and Plymouth.

Throughout my time at school I didn’t really know what I wanted to do. I wanted to do something like nursing, but I was never sure, now I honestly can’t imagine doing anything else.

First I became a support worker, and then progressed through the different levels from senior support worker to deputy manager and then on to a registered manager.

Find out more about Lou’s journey, her role now and how she found her passion.
