I am working on behalf of a fantastic residential service for children and young people to recruit for a Deputy Manager

As a Deputy Manager you will be supporting with managing a home that is making a huge difference to lives of children who have suffered trauma, neglect and abuse.

The role includes:
- Managing the home to an outstanding standard
- Support in ensuring an open culture is created, one in which children feel that they can complain and that they are listened to.
- Promote and actively encourage the delivery of a safe, structured, and nurturing environment. Promoting the young person's independence and developing their life skills
- Ensure that staff are aware of the individual needs of all young people and deliver the support required to ensure life chance opportunities and positive holistic development.

- Work closely with the Senior Management Team to ensure the home goes over and above in providing exceptional care
- Salary of £25,000 - inclusive of first 5 sleep ins each month. Additional sleeps are £76 each.
Whilst the role has its challenges, the results you will see from the children you work with will offer incomparable job satisfaction.

Could this be you?
- 1-2 year's experience working with young people in a residential setting (Essential)
- 1 year's experience as a Team Leader or Deputy Manager within Residential Childcare (Essential)
- Ideally a full driving licence with access to own transport.
