With over 20 years of success, Lifeworks provides a range of programmes and services for people with learning disabilities. We are committed to supporting individuals to lead the lives they choose with the right person-centred support and rights and opportunities as all community citizens.

We are looking for someone with the right expertise, values, motivation and determination to succeed as well as being able to embrace the opportunity to lead Sesame from Requires Improvement (CQC May 2018) to Good and Outstanding. 

Although judged as Good in Caring and Responsive, some improvements were identified and as such we are already making good progress in these areas. It goes without saying this will be a challenging role but also a rewarding one. 

Whilst working alongside a well-established and committed staff team, relatives who speak highly about the service and good partnership working, you will have the opportunity to develop, innovate and ensure the very best quality of care, support and outcomes are achieved for the residents we are so privileged to support.

- Have a full and thorough understanding of Health and Safety regulations, Health and Social Care Act, Care Act and CQC framework. 
- Have the ability to asses and evaluate service user needs as well ensuring best person-centred care planning and support practices with safeguarding, equality, respect and dignity at the heart of your day to day leadership and management of the service. 

We are a well-established charity that provides an excellent range of staff benefits including 33 days’ annual leave, a company pension scheme, childcare vouchers, staff discount scheme, ongoing training and supervision, continuing professional development and support as well as an extensive induction on commencement of employment. Lifeworks are also accredited Disability Confident Employers.
