Mencap have a fantastic opportunity for a Service Manager to lead 3 services located in Sudbury, Suffolk where we support individuals with a learning disability.
We are looking for someone who loves a challenge, is creative and has a passion for positive change, with the confidence to make decisions under pressure. You will be self motivated and determined to achieve the best outcome for the people we support. You will achieve this through leading and motivating a dedicated team of support workers to ensure and maintain the delivery of high-quality support. The successful applicant will need to be confident in communicating with the people we support, staff, family members and partner agencies.
Reporting to the Area Operations Manager you will be responsible for the continued positive outcomes for the people that we support through management of the services. You will be responsible for cultivating and contributing to a "continuous improvement" environment and will be proactive in the management of your staff, the rotas, and the budgets for your services.
You will be responsible for the quality of the service, as well as the finances and team performance, ensuring that the people that we support are given opportunities to pursue their interests and life goals.
Whilst it is not essential that you have direct experience as a Service Manager, it is important that you have some management experience, and a good knowledge of the health and social care sector. You will be working within the registered service and support living environment.
Strong leadership is key to the success of our services. We have developed an exciting leadership approach at Mencap that we call Our Leadership Way. We want to recruit leaders who can demonstrate they have the potential to excel within this framework. In return, we are committed to developing your potential even further.
The role will challenge, excite and never be dull but will be truly rewarding.
If you are looking for that next exciting career development opportunity, then this could be the one you have been looking for.
