Supported Living Service Manager
We have an exciting opportunity for a Manager to join this supported living service in Penge, South London, supporting adults with learning disabilities, mental health needs including personality disorders, and challenging behaviour.
The service comprises 9 en-suite studio flats.
This vacancy is to cover a period of maternity absence. At the end of the placement, if we feel the candidate would be a continued asset to our management team, we will endeavour to find a permanent position, however this will depend upon vacancies at the time and therefore cannot be guaranteed.
This autonomous role allows you to take overall responsibility for all aspects of running the service, ensuring the staff team enable the people we support to lead a valued and fulfilling life, maximising their potential physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially.
We want you to be involved in developing new initiatives in care practices, ensuring the overall delivery of a quality service, whilst working in accordance with CMG's philosophy of care, its policies and procedures and all relevant legislation.
With highly effective communication skills, you will interact with all departments internally and externally to ensure the safe and efficient running of the service.
Your duties will be varied, with no two days the same.
This exciting and varied role is perfect for a dedicated and resilient person with a people centred focus, the ability to problem solve, manage financials in a business environment as well as coach and develop your team in line with CMG values.
You will have experience managing a service supporting adults with learning disabilities, or be a Deputy Manager ready to move up.
You will either have, or be working towards, your Diploma Level 5 in Health and Social Care.
The people we support are at the heart of everything we do - they are wonderful individuals and deserve to be treated with respect, dignity and choice. Our main priority, therefore, is to find staff with values, behaviours and attitudes to match our own.
