An exciting opportunity has arose for a care focussed, driven and motivated service manager to oversee the day to day running of a supported living service for adults with learning disabilities, complex care needs and behaviours which may challenge in Stoke-On-Trent.

As service manager, you will be employed by one of the UKs leading provider of care and support services and will actively manage services which enable the individuals in your care to be as independent and able as possible in the community and form meaningful relationships. You will continuously promote an ethos where the people you care for are respected and valued.

The service manager role will require you to effectively manage a multi-disciplinary staff team, deliver care and support in line with CQC and company policies and procedures and achieve quality and compliance. You will provide specific management support, advice and motivation for your staff team. Most importantly, you will create and manage diverse services which have a strong focus on promoting and achieving personal goals for the people you support.

To apply for the service manager vacancy, you will be able to demonstrate a proven background supporting adults with learning disabilities and complex care needs. You will be a strong deputy manager looking for the next step on the career ladder or an established manager who is looking to work for a leading, national care provider.

As well as relevant care experience within the supported living or residential care settings, you will also hold a professional care qualification such as the QCF level 5 in leadership and management, NVQ 4 in health and social care or the RMA. As this role involves overseeing more than one site, you will hold a full UK driving licence and have access to your own vehicle.

In addition to relevant care qualifications and management experience, you will be able to demonstrate a passion for care and support, excellent communication skills and the drive and motivation to inspire others.

This exciting opportunity is offering successful candidates a salary in the region of GBP24000 per annum, continued training and development, internal progression opportunities and other exciting benefits.

As this is an urgent vacancy, I am looking to receive applications of suitably skilled and qualified candidates without further delay. Interviews will be conducted relatively quickly and whilst an update service DBS is not essential, it will allow for a quicker start date, especially if you have little or no notice period.
