The Mews and Wilton Terrace are registered supported living units for adults with a learning disability. We also provide a domiciliary support service to adults with a learning disability, mental health problems and challenging behaviour living in the community.

The comfort and wellbeing of our service users is paramount, and you will need the skills to work with complex and diverse cases to meet individual needs in a sensitive and effective way under diverse circumstances.

For this role you need strong leadership skills and be dedicated to promoting excellent care practice and the smooth running of the service through your staff. It is important to the Authority that these services receive both local and national recognition so you will need the relevant skills to develop, in conjunction with specialist officers, a marketing strategy that clearly sets out the vision of our residential services.

You require a strong business mind and be capable in budget management and financial accountability in line with the authority’s financial procedures. Changes in policy and procedures at service level will also need to be effectively implemented. In this senior role, you will be expected to represent the service at meetings, conferences etc, presenting a positive image of the Service and communicating its values, aims and objectives at all times.

You will need to be aware of the policies required to manage your establishment and deal with all aspects of HR management, including monitoring staff skills set and ensuring that the general safety and security of the building is maintained, with standards of hygiene and cleanliness being maintained throughout.

Staff development is a fundamental aspect of the work and as Manager, you will need to ensure your staff receive formal induction training, professional supervision and performance appraisals in line with corporate policy, as well as striving for personal development.

We are looking for a friendly and personable team manager as a large part of your role will be to establish and maintain relationships with service users and relatives, as well as other professionals and support networks.
