Leadership that makes a difference

Our Managers and Directors are responsible for ensuring the highest quality care and the best possible outcomes for the people in our care. If you have the vision, leadership and passion to support our teams and colleagues, we can support you in embracing a rewarding role with a range of opportunities.

Inspiring exceptional results

We need our Managers to be able to apply a wide range of skills seamlessly in their day-to-day work. By blending commercial awareness with insights and an ability to see the big picture, they are the champions and guardians of our personalised patient-focused model of care. If you do this, and lead with confidence and dedication, you can help to shape the future of our care, maintaining the excellent standards that make such a difference to each individual person in our care.

Building relationships at every level

To be a Cygnet Manager you need to understand the unique role that everybody plays in delivering outstanding care. Only by understanding the needs and ambitions of all our staff, the people in our care and their families, can you get the best out of everybody and support the continuous improvement of our service over time.

We’ll support you in building the strong long-term relationships you’ll rely on, as you become a valued and instrumental part of your immediate team and our organisation, and provide the kind of enthusiasm and vision that is central to our culture.


“Since joining Cygnet as a Preceptor Nurse, I have had several opportunities to develop my career. I have received promotions to Senior Staff Nurse, Clinical Team Leader and now Ward Manager. Since becoming a Ward Manager my level of responsibility has increased towards both staff and people in our care, so it is really important that I am able to ‘do what I say I will do’ and instil this into other staff to ensure we provide the highest standard of care.”



Sacha Barnes, Ward Manager
