An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Team Manager for the Shared Lives Scheme in Nottinghamshire. The person appointed will become the Registered Manager responsible for the service.
The Shared Lives Scheme has been judged by the CQC as “Good” in all 5 inspection areas. We need an experienced manager who can develop and build the scheme to deliver ambitious targets for growth.
You will lead and manage a team of dedicated coordinators and recruit, monitor and support shared lives carers who provide care and support for vulnerable adults in their homes.
You will focus on outcomes and will have a good knowledge of Shared Lives. You will have the drive to support the continuous development of the service which supports people from vulnerable groups, including people with learning disabilities, mental health conditions, physical disabilities, and older people.
Experience in working with one or more of these groups is expected, and you will be qualified as a social worker, nurse or allied qualification. You will be expected to have, or to undertake a management qualification.
Informal discussion about this post is available from Ian Masson, Group Manager on 0115 8040538.
