You’ve got an in-depth understanding of mental health issues and substantial experience of working in a Housing and Social Care setting. All you need is the perfect environment to put your skills to great use. Welcome to Richmond Fellowship as a Service Manager.
Right now, our Northampton Step Down service is looking for someone like you to join the team. This is a new, bespoke 24-hour service for two men with Mental Health and Learning Difficulties who are on the Autistic spectrum. As well as ensuring the quality of service and support provided to people who use our services, we’ll rely on you to manage service contracts and commissioner relationships, line manage front line staff and organise any building maintenance requirements. Whether you’re carrying out an induction, undertaking an investigation, putting team development plans in place or providing support to our business development team, one thing’s for sure – you won't be short of challenge and variety.
Substantial experience gained managing a caseload of individuals with complex needs is a given, as well as being outcome driven and able to lead by example using your firm but inclusive management style. Some experience of housing management is desirable, but not essential. You’re open and encouraging too, and have lots of tact and diplomacy. What's more, you're great at managing conflicting priorities on time, have a flexible attitude to working hours and are willing to participate in on call arrangements. And, if you have experience of carrying out investigations, writing reports/recommendations or managing budgets, even better, although it's not essential.
