Area Manager – Carlisle
Salary – £35,000- £36,000 per annum
Contract type – full time, Permanent
Business unit – Learning disabilities
Location – Carlisle
We support people across England with Learning Disabilities. Making a real difference to their lives, you’ll motivate, manage and grow a team of service managers to enable more people to discover new possibilities in their lives. We now have an opportunity for an Area Manager for the current and future Supported Living & Complex Support services that we provide for individuals across Carlisle.
As an Area Manager you will support the Locality Manager with the continued transformation and growth of our existing services as well as supporting with new business and service development. The support provided is as varied as the people we support but with a particular emphasis and expertise of supporting individuals with complex health care needs. As one of our management team, you’ll enjoy the scope and support to enhance your own life too, as you benefit from an exceptional level of internal and external training as well as a highly supportive management team.
Building on your experience of working with people with learning disabilities, you’ll set, maintain and develop standards as part of our supported living services for adults with learning disabilities. As Area Manager, your focus will always be on ensuring the delivery of consistently high quality support, all within a challenging, but very rewarding environment. In this varied Area Manager role, you’ll also carry out risk assessments, support Service Managers to implement support plans and handle some operational management.
The Ideal Candidate
Managing a team through a time of change, management experience and a background of working in supported living will be a real advantage. The ability to meet financial and business targets will be just as important, as will a track record of supporting and empowering people to live more independently in their community. Flexibility is essential, and ideally, you’ll also have a full driving license and access to a car. In return, we can offer generous benefits that include childcare vouchers, excellent training and the scope to progress your career with a sector leader.
As a leading health and social care provider with more than 300 locations across England, we take real pride in the services we offer.
Across the varied regions, sectors and settings we operate within, our organisation is held together by a shared vision – and our people are connected by the same values. These include belief in potential, confidence in communication, embracing positive change and always treating each other as individuals.
We run all of our services on a not-for-profit basis; instead, we invest every penny back into our services and people. We never stop believing in change for the better, and we work constantly to improve the lives of the people we support.
Our people bring our vision to life. So, if you are enthusiastic, motivated and committed to support others to fulfilling their potential, we don’t just offer you a job – we offer you a career.
What benefits will I receive?
Of course, we know it’s not about the money. But that doesn’t mean we don’t reward our people for their invaluable work with a benefits package that includes:
