If you are looking for a varied and dynamic service manager position within a well-established charity, where you will enjoy autonomy and the ability to make the role your own, we may just have the perfect opportunity for you!
We are currently looking for a driven and efficient individual to manage a supported living project for 10 adults, as well as a growing outreach service for more than 50 service users. Both services provide support to adults with mild-moderate learning disabilities and a range of other needs, including mental health and complex health needs.
The role will include coordinating and providing excellent person-centred care and support to service users, enabling them to live independently in their own home and be supported in all areas of day-to-day living. You will oversee the development and implementation of care plans designed to provide meaningful choice and a range of activities and support to meet people’s individual needs. As Project Manager, you will also contribute to the development of the team and be responsible for encouraging a culture based on respect and dignity for those in need of care and support, providing supervision and clear management to a team of Support Workers.
The ideal candidate will have experience of leading and coaching a team supporting people with learning disabilities or another vulnerable client group. Experience of supporting people with high and complex support needs would also be an advantage. In return, we offer a supportive environment in which people are encouraged to develop their skills, as part of a well-established and experienced team of managers.
