Bramble Court, South Shields
Up to £24,000
Salary: up to £24,000, dependant on skills and experience.
About the role
The role of an Location Manager is an exciting and dynamic one, with no day the same as the last. You’ll be responsible for delivering excellent customer service which meets and exceeds expectations, supports the needs of the individual and promotes happy living. You’ll have great people skills, a ‘can do’ attitude and empathy. As well as being a people person, you’ll also be business minded and always be on the lookout for opportunities to improve and enhance Anchor’s services for our customers.
You will get the best of both worlds with opportunities to work as part of a team and on using your own initiative. Knowledge or previous experience of working with older people, managing budgets, complaint handling and safeguarding of vulnerable adults is preferred, but not essential for this role. A level 3 certificate or diploma in housing is desirable.
We believe that later life is for living.
Helping people enjoy later life is our passion. It has been for nearly 60 years. And today, in an ageing society, our housing, care and support is needed more than ever.
As England’s largest provider of specialist housing and care for those in later life, we’re committed to creating choice and opportunity for everyone. We put our customers at the heart of everything we do, listening carefully and shaping our homes and services around them.
And we’re proudly not-for-profit, which means every penny we make is reinvested into our properties and services, building more and innovating for the future so that people can have a home where they love living in later life.
