    We are looking for an experienced sales, marketing and business development professional, whose role is to ensure the home meets its occupancy and revenue targets. You are not necessarily from the healthcare sector but you will be able to confidently demonstrate an ability to sell in a compassionate and consultative style and drive enquiries by building strong community ties.

You will work closely with heads of department in your home, Care UK’s marketing and operational teams.

    In this hugely rewarding role you’ll be working with families who are looking for care for a loved one, at what is often a very stressful and emotional time. Therefore, it is essential that you have the ability to drive challenging business targets balanced by empathy, care and passion for improving people’s lives.
