You will also manage the staff to deliver support plans to our service users and work with healthcare professionals to ensure support plans are to the highest quality.

The Team Leader will have responsibility for the day-to-day management of the service, therefore, you will be able to demonstrate excellent social care project management skills and have a working knowledge of current legislation relating to the social care sector.

Benefits of working with us include:

  • Competitive Salary
