Do you have a good understanding of health and social care management and substantial experience of developing business plans and managing budgets? Would you like to be part of an organisation that counts on the professionalism, insight, expertise and passion of its staff to inspire individual recovery for the people they work with? Then join us as a locality manager.

Recovery Focus is a new group of expert charities with the shared aim to inspire individual recovery nationwide. Between us we have a track record of more than 200 years of developing and running personalised services that work with people with mental health, substance misuse and other complex needs to achieve their ambitions. Each partner organisation has its own rich history of success, but together we believe we can lead the way in evidence-based recovery pathways that we can tailor to meet local and individual needs.

Right now, one of our partners, Richmond Fellowship, is looking for a locality manager. You’ll be taking on a business management role with key operational responsibility for business planning and budget setting for our services in Cambridgeshire. These include supported housing, employment support and community-based services, providing a range of co-ordinated support to local people with mental health problems.

We’ll also rely on you to make sure business plans are implemented and services delivered effectively by checking performance, quality and compliance. Taking the lead in relationship management with key stakeholders, including contract negotiations, will also be down to you. And, when it comes to managing risk, line managing team leaders or ensuring staff training and development needs are met; again, it's you we'll turn to.

As well as a track record of managing contracts with service providers or commissioners, you’ll need some experience of business development and innovation. Well-organised, outcome driven and adept at negotiating with tact and diplomacy, you have a flexible approach to working hours too, and are great at leading, supervising, motivating and inspiring others. A flair for deciphering complex information and data and interpreting management information to improve service performance is also vital, together with the ability to delegate.

In return, you can expect some great benefits, including 25 days' holiday, contributory pension scheme, employee assistance programme and childcare vouchers, plus exceptional professional development and training opportunities.

So, get inspired today. Visit our website and take the first steps towards a more fulfilling career.
