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, we’re looking for someone like you to manage the day-to-day running of our 24 hour Supported Housing service in North Shields. Here at Pele Tower we have more than 15 years’ experience of supporting people with emotionally unstable personality disorders and associated mental health problems. A Therapeutic and Psychologically Informed Environment, we are accredited and quality assured through the Royal College of Psychiatrists Community of Communities and our unique, structured therapeutic support can help stabilise lives without intensive use of medical and psychiatric services.
But, we need your help in order to provide the very best recovery focused delivery. 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, 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.
The starting salary for this post is £25,612-£26,894 per annum.
This is a rolling recruitment process, shortlisted candidates will be interviewed as they apply.
So, are you ready to take on this rewarding role that comes with some really great benefits, including a smartphone? Apply now via our website.
