Job Description

We are FitzRoy, a national charity transforming lives of adults with learning disabilities. Our vision is a world where people with disabilities can live the life they choose and are treated as equals. The people we support are at the heart of everything we do, and we are driven by our values to ’see the person’, ’be brave’ and ’be creative‘.

We are determined to continue transforming lives, even in these tough times. We need a Service Development Manager to support a range of our learning disabilities services in the South East. This is an exciting and varied role, you could be setting up a new service, stepping in when a manager is absent, or supporting a team to improve their care standards. If you are a Care Manager looking for your next step, or a change of direction, this could be the role for you.

About you:

  • You have proven experience leading a team to deliver a quality service to people with a learning/other disability
  • You have a proven track record of implementing sustainable improvements within Regulatory frameworks including CQC
  • Have turned teams around, developing your people and improving the quality of care provided
  • Have knowledge of the relevant sector requirements for the safeguarding of vulnerable adults
  • Have a full, clean driving licence and are willing to travel extensively and stay away from home frequently – often for several days at a time over several weeks
  • Ideally you have been a Registered Manager or held a peripatetic position and worked with Learning Disabilities, Challenging Behaviour or Complex Needs

 

This home-based role supports our South East region, and involves extensive travel to our services across Hampshire, East Sussex, South London and Kent. Therefore the successful candidate must be based within reasonable travelling distance of these locations.

In return we can offer:

  • 25 days holiday (+ bank holidays) rising with service
  • Pension
  • Retailer discounts and a blue light card
  • Excellent Learning and Development opportunities

Plus the chance to be part of an amazing organisation that lives its values. If this sounds like you, apply today!

Please note internally this role is named ‘Service Development & Implementation Manager’ but may appear with other titles on our adverts to attract the right candidates.
