Registered Manager / Services Manager – Charity
It’s not just a job, it’s a life experience. Join us and help us change lives.
This is a national charity that supports more than 2,500 people with learning disabilities. We put the people we support at the centre of everything we do and work in partnership with them to provide services including residential care, day opportunities and supported living – from a few hours a week to twenty-four hours a day.
About the Role:
These roles come with a significant span of responsibility across a number of different supported living and residential support services. It’s a chance to step up and develop your full leadership and management talent.
As these are Registered Manager posts, you will be taking on legal accountability for your “cluster of services”. This role is central to ensuring services are safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led. The responsibilities cover legislation, compliance and finance in addition to people management, and provide support for people with a learning disability. In a sense you will be managing your own business unit, with the guidance and support and accountability to your Regional Manager.
They want you to work closely in partnership with people they support, staff, families, local authorities and other agencies to drive the service forward. There is real scope to innovate, network and make the most of collaborative opportunities.
As soon as you take up post they will begin the registration and induction process with a view to successfully completing both within 6 months. You will need to ensure that support from the registered service meets Fundamental Standards and Regulations of the Health and Social Care act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014.
You’ll need to demonstrate you understand your legal responsibilities and what to do to ensure a service is compliant. They can support you to prepare for this interview and gain Registration.

Experience of working with Adults with Learning Disabilities previous experience in working with people with complex needs is desirable. It’s important that you already have experience of supervising and managing a team – together with the desire to take on more responsibility. A full UK Driving Licence, and access to a vehicle, is essential.
