General Manager: Be at the Heart of Aged Care

Every day, in every way, we bring real heart to work. It’s what drives us to deliver our refreshingly different person-first commitment to care. That’s why we are seeking a General Manager for ABC in Thames. You will enrich the lives of our society’s most vulnerable and be part of an inclusive culture where you can make a difference while growing your career. With 40 care homes and 36 retirement villages across ABC NZ, you can make a true impact.

The General Manager will oversee this beautiful care home and independent village, ensuring person-centred care is always at the focus of what we do. Positioned right next to the sea, ABC boasts magnificent views of the Firth of Thames, while also enjoying the view from our colourful rose gardens. A further smaller village located nearer to the Thames township, Waiokaraka consists of 16 villas close to shops, while benefitting from the communal facilities available at our ABC site.

ABC is focused on providing care that is perfectly tailored to meet residents’ needs, while striving to make each day the best it can be. In this Thames paradise, you will be tasked with leading the care home and village as an integrated site, maintaining the strong community reputation.

This role is diverse and demanding, and you will be required to develop and implement strategies to integrate care across both care home and village.

You will be someone who enjoys walking the floor, helping where needed and providing support to your team, residents, and their families.
Experience leading and coaching large teams while promoting development opportunities.
Financial and budget management experience.
