“May you live all the days of your life”*
Simeon is a story of determination and drive succeeding in the provision of excellent care to residents in a warm and friendly care home. If you believe in upholding dignity for older people in the last phase of life, and have the enthusiasm and ambition to ensure that the whole of a person's life has significance, meaning and purpose - then this is the role for you!
Simeon is a success story - a triumph of good will and dedication. It was founded by Camphill in 1983 to pioneer a model of elder care that would provide a therapeutic home and community; run in a deliberately informal way that encourages social interaction, rehabilitation, wholeness, well-being and safety. Care Inspection grades of 5 and 6 have been consistently awarded over several years.
A successful capital appeal has provided Simeon with a new home in September 2015. Simeon House has 23 ensuite bedrooms with dementia-friendly features and an energy efficient building. They are now looking for a successor to their current General Manager to continue and further develop Simeon’s distinctive approach to old age care.
The General Manager is the most senior post holder within Simeon - responsible for the safe and effective management of the Care Home. The ideal candidate will therefore be experienced in managing multi-disciplinary teams with knowledge of the Care Inspectorate and National Care Standards. You will have a strong understanding of budget management and financial planning and the ability to make informed decisions and advise your Board of Trustees.
The successful candidate will be supportive of the ethos underpinning Simeon and the wider Camphill community. You will be a caring and compassionate individual committed to providing the best care possible for older people in Simeon.
