Service Manager (Learning Disabilities)
Service Manager required to join a leading provider of care and support for adults with learning disabilities, dual diagnosis or mental health needs within a stunning area of Stafford.
This service is easily accessible from Stafford, Cannock, Telford and the Wolverhampton areas and would suit a skilled manager who is looking to join an organisation who really does offer genuine career progression opportunities.
You will work for a forward thinking, person centred employer who has both their staff needs and the individual care requirements of the people they support at the forefront of their minds. Well respected by a number of external agencies, you will have the opportunity to develop on both a personal and professional level.
This exciting role will require you to oversee the day to day running of a small residential service for adults with a learning disability diagnosis and some behaviours which may challenge.
Your job role will be varied and will require you to manage a multi-disciplinary staff team, take a key role in staff recruitment and training and liaise effectively with external agencies. You will lead by example and motivate your staff to deliver the highest quality of care possible.
Your purpose is to ensure the people in your care live as independently as possible and have full and rewarding lives. You will actively empower the individuals you support to take control and have belief in their own potential.
This is a great opportunity for a skilled manager who would like to utilise their already excellent managerial skills within a new setting. You will be passionate, motivated and have a "can do" attitude. Most of all, you will be committed to the service you manage and also the people you support.
To apply for this vacancy, you will be able to demonstrate a proven background within the learning disabilities sector. Most importantly, you will have held employment in a supervisory/management capacity and be able to demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the care needs of people with an autism or ASD diagnosis.
A managerial qualification such as the RMA or QCF level 5 or equivalent is essential, as is flexibility to work the "on call" rota.
Due to location of this service, you must hold a full UK driving licence and have access to your own vehicle.
This highly rewarding job role is offering an annual salary of £32000 per annum with the opportunity to earn a competitive annual bonus based on achieving pre-agreed targets. In addition, you will also benefit from a generous annual leave allowance, continued training and development and genuine career progression opportunities.
