MacIntyre are looking for a Frontline Manager - Shared Lives - Central Bedfordshire
Full Time (38 hours a week)
Salary: £26,142 a year
MacIntyre is a national charity supporting people with learning disabilities and last year we were awarded a new contract to run the Shared Lives scheme in Central Bedfordshire. Could you be the lynchpin of this scheme as our new Shared Lives Manager?
Your first (big!) task will be to recruit 25 new families into the scheme as Shared Lives Carers. You’ll have two years to achieve this, using your skills and imagination to “sell” the scheme in a variety of ways.
You’ll lead the matching process between Carers and people being supported, who will all be adults with learning disabilities. You’ll monitor placements, developing close relationships with all concerned, as well as liaising with the local authority and other stakeholders.
You’ll have an understanding of the needs of vulnerable people, their families and carers. You’ll be a confident networker, with great communication skills. Ideally, you’ll have operational knowledge of social care support schemes.
Generous annual leave allowance of 33 days (including public holidays) rising with service
Workplace pension scheme
Employee Assistance scheme to support your health and wellbeing

Closing date: Tuesday 18 December 2018
