Registered Manager / Service Manager (Charity) 

From inspiring teams, to helping each person grow. Join them and help them change lives. 

Our client is a national charity that supports more than 3,000 adults with learning disabilities.

Our client currently has two Registered Cluster Manager vacancies, one for the Residential Service and another for the Supported Living Service. These are key roles with a wide range of responsibilities across two different services on the same site. One is a dementia service that has great potential to become a flagship for our client’s dementia support services and the other is also residential, covering a variety of complex needs but not diagnosis based.

About the role: 

Be a Registered Manager with our client and you’ll develop your social care career with one of the leading names in the learning disabilities sector. You’ll go to work each day knowing you can make a real difference to the lives of adults with learning disabilities. 

There’s no such thing as a “typical day” here. As a Registered Manager, you will be responsible for leading a “cluster” of services, inspiring your team and putting the tools in place to ensure your services are safe, caring, effective and well led. This is a great opportunity to gain registered status, take on new responsibilities and build your management and leadership skills. 

You’ll be managing teams of people and using our client’s unique, person-centred model to support adults with learning disabilities, enabling them to lead enjoyable, fulfilling lives. Our client gives its Registered Managers significant accountability and opportunity. Responsibilities cover people management, legislation, compliance and finance. You’ll be managing your own business unit, with accountability to your Regional Manager, who will offer guidance and support. 

You will care about how you work in partnership with others, working closely with the people our client supports and their families, along with your colleagues, local authorities and other agencies. You’ll speak out for the people they support, negotiating the best possible support contracts. You’ll have great scope to innovate, network and make the most of collaborative opportunities. 

About you: 

This is a demanding role for someone who is ready to step up and take their leadership and management skills to the next level. You need to have a Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People Level 5 or equivalent. If not, you will need to be able to achieve this, with their support, within your first 12 months. You’ll also need experience of working with adults with learning disabilities, ideally with people with complex needs. 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 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. With Investors in People and Skills for Care accreditation they are committed to investing in their teams to ensure they have the specialist skills and expertise needed to support others to live the best life possible. Your registration and induction process will start as soon as you join. Benefits include private health insurance and life assurance.
