About the role:
Be a Registered Manager and you'll develop your social care career with one of the leading names in the learning disabilities sector. You'll go to work each day knowing you can make a real difference to the lives of adults with learning disabilities.
There's no such thing as a "typical day" here. As a Registered Manager, you will be responsible for leading a "cluster" of services, inspiring your team and putting the tools in place to ensure your services are safe, caring, effective and well led. This is a great opportunity to gain registered status, take on new responsibilities and build your management and leadership skills.
You'll be managing teams of people and using the Charity's unique, person-centred model to support adults with learning disabilities, enabling them to lead enjoyable, fulfilling lives. They give their Registered Managers significant accountability and opportunity. This is a key role and you'll have a wide range of responsibilities across two different residential support services on the same site.
One is a Dementia service that has great potential to become a flag ship for their Dementia support services, the other is also residential covering a variety of complex needs but not diagnosis based.
Responsibilities cover people management, legislation, compliance and finance. You'll be managing your own business unit, with accountability to your Regional Manager, who will offer guidance and support.
You will care about how you work in partnership with others, working closely with the people the chairty supports and their families, along with your colleagues, local authorities and other agencies. You'll speak out for the people they support, negotiating the best possible support contracts. You'll have great scope to innovate, network and make the most of collaborative opportunities.
This is a demanding role for someone who is ready to step up and take their leadership and management skills to the next level. You need to have a Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People Level 5 or equivalent. If not, you will need to be able to achieve this, with their support, within your first 12 months. You'll also need experience of working with adults with learning disabilities, ideally with people with complex needs. Experience of supervising and managing a team is essential.
You'll need to ensure that support from your registered services meets all the relevant fundamental standards and you'll need to demonstrate you understand your legal responsibilities and know what to do to ensure a service is compliant.
