About the role:
There’s no such thing as a “typical day” here. As a Registered Manager, you will be responsible for leading a “cluster” of services, inspiring your team and putting the tools in place to ensure your services are safe, caring, effective and well-led. This is a great opportunity to gain registered status, take on new responsibilities and build your management and leadership skills.
You’ll be managing teams of people and using Hft’s unique, person-centred model to support adults with learning disabilities, enabling them to lead enjoyable, fulfilling lives. Hft gives its Registered Managers significant accountability and opportunity. This is a key role and you’ll have a wide range of responsibilities across several different residential support services.
Responsibilities cover people management, legislation, compliance and finance. You’ll be managing your own business unit, with accountability to your Regional Manager, who will offer guidance and support.
You will care about how you work in partnership with others, working closely with the people Hft supports and their families, along with your Hft colleagues, local authorities and other agencies. You’ll speak out for the people we support, negotiating the best possible support contracts. You’ll have great scope to innovate, network and make the most of collaborative opportunities.
This is a demanding role for someone who is ready to step up and take their leadership and management skills to the next level. You need to have a Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People Level 5 or equivalent. If not, you will need to be able to achieve this, with our support, within your first twelve months. You’ll also need experience of working with adults with learning disabilities, ideally with people with complex needs. Experience of supervising and managing a team is essential.
You’ll need to ensure that support from your registered services meets all the relevant fundamental standards and you’ll need to demonstrate you understand your legal responsibilities and know what to do to ensure a service is compliant.
What we offer:
Hft is a national charity that supports more than 2,500 people with learning disabilities. We put the people we support at the centre of everything we do and work in partnership with them to provide services including residential care, day opportunities and supported living – from a few hours a week to twenty-four hours a day.
The career development opportunities are excellent. With Investors in People and Skills for Care accreditation we are committed to investing in our teams to ensure they have the specialist skills and expertise needed to support others to live the best life possible. Your registration and induction process will start as soon as you join. Benefits include private health insurance and life assurance.
