Calderglen Care Home Manager

An exciting opportunity has arisen at Victoria House Care Home in Blantyre to become the new manager and lead their wonderful staff team. This post has become available as the present longstanding manager is retiring.

Glasgow G72£30,000 – £60,000 a year –  Full-time, Permanent


We are a 50 bed care home for older adults based in Blantyre, in easy commuting distance from many areas including Glasgow. We have all en-suite bedrooms which are on a single ground floor. We are literally across the road from amenities including ASDA and many local shops in Blantyre town centre. The current owners have been involved with this home for around 10 years and therefore are well established and experienced operators.

You will lead a staff team of nurses and support workers amongst others. We have a very enthusiastic activities co-ordinator and have recently invested in things such as a ‘silent disco system’ and a ‘Sharp Meet up Table’ which is valued by the residents and has been very useful particularly during Covid pandemic.

We also have recently developed a link with Glasgow Caledonian University to have Occupational Therapy students based with us on placements. This should be of mutual benefit to the home, its residents and the students.

We also have a very hands on General Manager who works between Victoria Care Home and our sister home ‘Calderglen House’ which is a residential rehab facility for adults with alcohol and drug problems. Both sites are situated in Blantyre.

Therefore you will have support and supervision from an experienced General Manager and work closely with the company directors. Indeed management experience is not necessary although we welcome people with said experience. What is more important to us is employing someone dynamic who has drive, ambition and is willing to learn along with us.

We do ask that you are a registered nurse (RGN or RMN) and have a valid NMC pin number.

If you have any questions about us or the role please do not hesitate to contact us. The salary is a guide and we aim to be competitive for the right candidate and dependent on experience.

Job Types: Full-time, Permanent

Salary: £30,000.00-£60,000.00 per year
