Vacancy Description

The Role:

We’re looking for a Scheme Manager to join our Support & Care department. Taking responsibility for Estuary’s private retirement scheme at Pembridge Court, you will act as a link between the scheme’s residents and the Association.

This hands-on role includes ensuring the overall wellbeing of residents, overseeing the work of cleaning and maintenance staff, and managing repairs and maintenance to the scheme.


The successful candidate will possess previous experience of working with elderly people, and ideally some experience of supervising staff. You will demonstrate excellent communication and organisational skills, coupled with the vision and innovation to develop and promote services within the scheme.   Demonstrating a caring, diplomatic approach, you will have the ability to be firm when necessary, be highly self-motivated and able to work with minimum supervision.

The Scheme Manager will reside onsite – a one-bedroom rent free flat at the scheme will be provided by the Association, along with a payment to cover council tax.
