About the role

You'll speak out for the people we support, negotiating the best possible support contracts. You'll have great scope to innovate, network and make the most of collaborative opportunities.

Experience of working with people with complex needs is desirable. Experience of supervising and managing a team is essential.

You'll need to ensure that support from your registered services meets all the relevant fundamental standards and. And you'll need to demonstrate you understand your legal responsibilities and know what to do to ensure a service is compliant.

What they offer
The career development opportunities are excellent. Your registration and induction process will start as soon as you join. Benefits include private health insurance and life assurance. They offer a national network of directors and managers to share knowledge and experiences and have excellent training programmes (with Skills for Care Accreditation), so staff development is at the heart of everything they do.
