Stockton-On-Tees Borough Council has recently undergone a review of its in house residential provision and model of delivery. This is an exciting time to work for the Council as we embark on the implementation of the review that will increase not only placement capacity, but also the range of placements available.
We are looking to recruit an inspirational, experienced and qualified Residential Manager, who holds a Level 5 Diploma Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People’s Services – Children and Young People’s Residential or has the ability and commitment to completing the award within 18 months of appointment.
The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate a proven track record of success in the field, must meet all essential criteria as set out in the person specification and must be able to register with Ofsted.
You will have the skills, knowledge and drive to lead and deliver care packages that puts the young person needs at the centre. Pivotal to this process will be the ability to work as part of a multi-agency team that supports the needs which have been agreed as part of their permanence plan. The home will be supported by a therapist who will be integral to the development and delivery of the packages of support.
Additionally, the newly appointed Manager will be central to setting up the new home and developing the necessary relationships and networks in order to effectively manage the home and the services it intends to deliver. As this develops the Manager will ensure performance is measured and outcomes reported to Partners and Stakeholders.
This post offers a competitive salary and employee benefits including Local Government Pension Scheme, and employee discounts.
We now have an additional opportunity for a Residential Manager in another of our medium term residential homes. In view of this the closing date for these vacancies has been extended.
