Registered Manager – Supported Living – Harrogate and Ripon

 

The Wilf Ward Family Trust is a well-established, values driven Yorkshire based charity which employs over 800 staff across more than 70 locations. We are financially sound, have just agreed a significant pay rise for all front-line staff and have a clear vision and strategy for the future. Our mission is to support people with learning disabilities to live extraordinary lives and we like to think that we do this really well. We already have achieved ‘Outstanding’ status with the CQC in two separate registrations and we have the aspiration, plans and support to achieve this across all of our services. We are recruiting a Registered Manager to cover our Harrogate and Ripon region, who will be based from our Ripon office, to develop and lead the supported living services in the region.

 

There are 7 services providing support to 24 individuals in this region, spread across Ripon, Knaresborough and Harrogate. Each service is part of a cluster of 2 or 3 properties and has its own dedicated management team. The individuals we support are fully engaged in their communities, have high levels of engagement with their families and other support networks. You will be motivated by spending a lot of your time meeting the people we support, family members and professionals, as well as mentoring and guiding your managers and staff teams.

 

Experience of working with people with learning disabilities is useful but not essential and we would encourage applications from other social care and health sectors. Due to the nature of the role applicants should have a full current driving licence. Preferably you will have experience of working within a CQC regulated setting but we are willing to consider applicants who can demonstrate ambition and the desire to deliver the best possible outcomes for the people we support.

 

What we can offer you in return:

 

  • A salary of £37,500 per annum
  • Excellent training and career progression opportunities
  • The opportunity to undertake a fully funded Level 5 qualification
  • An annual leave entitlement above the statutory minimum
  • Enhanced auto enrolment contributions in the pension scheme
  • Access to an employee support helpline for you and your household
  • Access to rewards and discount scheme
  • Access to Transave our credit union saving scheme
  • Death in service insurance
  • Refer a friend (get paid for referring friends to work for the Trust when they are successful in the recruitment process)
