The purpose of the role of Team Manager is to provide leadership and guidance to our teams of Support Workers who provide person-

centred support to adults and children with learning disabilities and other support needs.

You will manage large services, and whilst some aspects of team leadership will be delegated to the Assistant Team Managers, you will retain overall responsibility for team management, staff performance and quality of service standards.

Exceptional organisational skills and the ability to juggle conflicting priorities are essential, and your attention to detail will be second to none.

You will work closely with the Development Managers to ensure a consistent and high quality service delivery; and lead by example to maintain a positive and empowering ethos within the team.

  • Previous experience of staff management, ideally from within the social care sector
  • At least two years’ experience of providing person-centred services to individuals who have support needs
  • An SVQ 2 in Social Care or equivalent qualification
  • The ability to complete a SVQ 3 in Social Care within 12 months of taking the post
  • Please note that post holders must be registered with the SSSC within 6 months of starting the role. If already registered then you will need to update your membership accordingly.

    Positions are also subject to satisfactory references and health clearance, and a satisfactory PVG.
