Who would you be working for as Registered Service Manager?

After visiting this Provider last week, meeting the CEO and Head of HR, I got a real sense of pride - not just regarding the people they support, but the positive difference they have made to the adults they support. The Chief Executive told me several 'goosebumps' stories - one was particularly inspiring. One service user had been systematically failed by all previous placements - our client didn’t let them down. He has since gone on to thrive and flourish and is now so much happier and content!

Our client specialises in a wide range of complex needs; with a particular focus on Asperger’s Syndrome, complex Learning Disabilities, and associated Mental Health needs. They are very conscious of their role in the sector - empowering and enabling the people they help to support and develop - but knowing that every single person is unique.

Are you ready for a challenge?

Our client is particularly interested in employing a candidate who has a wide range of experience with setting up a new, successful residential home - this is a huge opportunity to be at the forefront of launching and developing a new service. With a wide experience of the mental health sector, you will be at the center of future business growth. You will endeavor to provide an unwavering service, for families, social workers and medical professionals.

You will be able to introduce a holistic care planning model; develop a comprehensive training structure for staff of all professional levels, with a focus on continual personal development. In doing so, you will maintain a solid staff team skillset throughout all areas of the home.
