You will work closely with the Development Managers to ensure a consistent and high quality service delivery; and lead by example to maintain a positive and empowering ethos within the team.

Some of the essential criteria for this role are:

  • Previous experience of staff management, ideally from within the social care sector
  • At least two years’ experience of providing person-centred services to individuals who have support needs
