Hackney is one of Britain’s most exciting and fastest-changing boroughs. We have changed the reputation, not just of the Council, but of Hackney itself. The challenges that have arisen over the last two years have intensified the need for action and we are determined to rebuild Hackney for, and with, our diverse communities.
We are looking for two Locality Managers for our Care Quality Commision regulated Housing with Care Service.
Housing with Care schemes provide housing that is primarily designed for people aged 55 plus who have both housing, support and care needs. Registered landlords provide the accommodation, for which service users hold a tenancy to their own flat, and the CQC regulated care is provided by London Borough of Hackney staff.
Solutions focussed, enthusiastic and passionate about good quality of care provision, you will assist the Registered Managers to ensure that services meet quality standards; meet regulatory, legislative and council requirements; are innovative; empower service users; and are constantly developing.
You will need to be able to manage as well as motivate staff and will directly supervise Scheme Managers and Welfare & Activity Officers. You will assist the Registered Managers in providing clear leadership and provide strategic input into the development of the service.
You will need to have excellent communications skills, an ability to build strong relationships and a professional demeanour that generates confidence.
This is a busy post and tasks are varied. You will need to be able to prioritise and meet deadlines and have the ability to switch from task to task to meet demands.

Hackney Council works to eradicate discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, pregnancy and maternity, age and marital status.
