We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated Team Manager to take on a leadership role within our supportive and dynamic multidisciplinary team. We are an integrated health and social care team providing urgent proactive and reactivesupport to patients in their own homes, either to prevent unnecessary hospital admissions, or to support people home from hospital.

Extensive clinical experience within urgent response work within the community setting is essential. Personal qualities such as emotional resilience, 'can do' solution focused approach and remaining calm and collected during times of increased pressure an pace are required.

You will have the ability to work as a confident and autonomous senior practitioner. You will need high level clinical assesssment and problem solving skills to manage high risk and acutely ill patients in the community. You will need to demonstrate flexibility, excellent time management skills and excellent communication and interpersonal skills.

The role will involve clinical leadership and operational management, the ratio between these three elements will flex to meet service demands.

This is an exciting and fast paced team, where each day can present new challenges and learning opportunities. Working 5 days over a 7 day period.

We are based in an active city in a beautiful part of Devon, close to the coast and moors. If you possess the skills and knowledge we are looking for and want to join our friendly team then we look forward to hearing from you.
