We have recognised that a large number of care providers are struggling to recruit good managers to their services.  It is a legal requirement to have a Registered Manager and there is a dramatic shortage of good candidates at present. In fact  recruitment in the whole Health and Social Care sector is experiencing a crisis, exasperated by the Covid-19 Pandemic, many people are opting to leave the care sector and this is leaving a huge shortage of at all levels.

The reasons for this include: Increasing demands from regulators and stakeholders, stress or exhaustion, work/life balance. Many Registered Managers are stepping down  from the role or leaving the sector all together.  But above all,  the main reason we hear from those  we speak is “Lack of Support” and this is such a shame as it is so easily rectified.

One of our biggest challenges right now is recruiting Registered Managers, across all service types. Under pressure services are losing managers through burnout because the support and mentoring structure is not in place or not robust, A Registered Manager who does not FEEL has the potential to lead to serious harm to your business with a decrease in quality, non compliance with the regulatory framework and ultimately lost revenue if service users/residents leave or a restriction is added to the service.

In addition to services under pressure the increased demand for care is seeing new services that are being opened at an unprecedented rate, Employers are having to offer highly attractive salary packages with all sorts of add on’s including welcome bonus’s, fancy cars and bonus and commission structures just to attract interest from a decreasing pool of experienced managers.

However none of these things guarantee that a newly appointed Registered Manager will succeed or stay.  To address this Social Care Consultants Ltd and OSA Healthcare Recruitment Ltd  have created a package of “Recruitment and Support” to minimise these threats and give both your service and your new manager the best opportunity to not just succeed but THRIVE.
