You might be working as a senior carer but looking to take on a bigger challenge. Perhaps you have the relevant experience but want a change and to make a difference. Maybe you’ve been on a career break and seeking a return to full-time employment. Whatever the reason, if you’d like the opportunity to help manage the day-to-day operations for Learning Disabilities (and deputise for the manager when required), The Fremantle Trust could have just the job for you.

Established since 1992, we’re an award winning charity and not-for-profit organisation that provides first class care and support for older people and adults with learning disabilities. Today, we have 1,800 staff supporting over 2,000 residents at 58 services across Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Hertfordshire, Milton Keynes and North London. And, right now, we’re looking for a Deputy Manager to join our team at My Time.

Now, we want you to help us by ensuring we provide a relaxed and safe environment and that our residents receive the very best support services. We want you to play your part in making sure everything runs smoothly. Day-to-day, you’ll help the manager ensure effective care and support systems are in place and that we operate in a fully compliant way. We’ll also rely on you for performance management of staff and budget management of the home. Above all, you’ll see that every member of the team is focused on providing the very best customer care.

You must have previous experience working within a supervisory position. It will be advantageous if you have a NVQ level 3 qualifications or equivalent or working towards. You will be required to provide leadership and management throughout day-to-day operations, whilst ensuring high quality care and support is delivered at all times. Your management style will inspire staff to deliver excellence in all aspects of their work and to develop both personally and professionally.

You should have a clear understanding of care and knowledge of CQC standards and whilst being compassionate, caring and hardworking, you have a good standard of literacy and numeracy too. Specialist knowledge of the client group is beneficial; in a role where treating everyone with respect and dignity and doing all you can to help enhance their quality of life will be key to your success.

If that sounds like the kind of good news you're looking for, why not get in touch?
