Deputy Manager - Learning Disabilities

Posted 31 January by Consensus Ended

Deputy Manager based within our Residential Service in Littlehampton.

Offering a starting salary of £24,000 per annum

About us

We’re Consensus, an award-winning independent provider of support services for people with learning disabilities and additional health and social care needs.

We believe everybody can achieve their aspirations and do amazing things. Our role is to provide person-centered support - support that starts each person we support on the road to greater independence, empowering them to reach their full potential.

The Deputy Manager role

You’ll support people with learning disabilities to develop a varied and fulfilling life style. Like us, you believe in a person-centered approach, that allows the people we support to make their own choices about the support they need and the direction their future will take.

You’ll lead your team to deliver an innovative service that ensures everyone you support is safe, happy, healthy and full of plans to learn and develop. Day to day, you’ll be doing anything from managing rotas, to performing risk assessments and implementing support plans, helping your team develop their skills to ensuring we’re achieving your budget. Above all, you’ll help make sure that everyone we work with is supported in a way that suits their needs and wishes, and means they’re always making progress.

The skills you’ll need

To join us, you’ll need to have plenty of experience working with those with learning disabilities or complex behaviors. An NVQ 3 in Health & Social Care is also a must, as is a good knowledge of relevant H&S regulations. Ideally, you’ll also have been a supervisor or manager. You’ll certainly have strong leadership, interpersonal and communication skills. Confident, flexible and efficient, you’re happy to work on a shift basis, and, where required, to be on call. Above all, you’re committed to giving the people you work for the respect, the choice, and the future they deserve.

"We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age".
