We currently have an exciting job opportunity for a Deputy Children’s Home Manager for a brand-new service opening in the Stoke-on-Trent area of Staffordshire. This is a great opportunity to be involved in a service from the get-go!
Our client is a smaller provider of specialist care and education. With no more than three children in each home, this means they can really focus on the Children and being an outstanding provider.

The Children they support have very complex needs and high-risk behaviours and their job is to build their self esteem and enable them to have a bright future ahead of them. To do that they need a Manager that is a true leader!
