Voyage Care lives its values by promising to EMPOWER each other, work TOGETHER, promote HONESTY, be a leader in OUTSTANDING quality and to always be SUPPORTIVE in everything we do…. Could this be you?

About the Role:

Essex DCA is our central hub/branch located in Clacton-on Sea where we provide high quality, person centred services to 6 supported living schemes, a day centre, domiciliary care packages, and outreach support across the Clacton/Harwich/Colchester areas. So, no two days are the same and every day is rewarding!

Across our services, we support adults aged 18-65 with a variety of different needs including learning disabilities, mental health needs, complex needs and behaviours that may challenge. We support people to leave hospital settings, to live a good and ordinary life in their own home as part of a community. It takes passion, dedication and resilience to lead a team providing this type of support – do you have what it takes?

As a Deputy Branch Manager, you will promote good practice at all times and act as an effective and positive role model. You will be responsible for line managing and supporting Senior Support team members, creating and maintaining person centred support plans and ensuring high quality care and support is being provided to the people that we support. You will also be involved in the day to day running of the hub/branch which will include responsibilities around setting up new schemes, assessments, support plans, reviews, medication, finances, supervisions & appraisals, communicating with support staff and providing them with support, ensuring staff training & compliance is up to date, rota management and oncall duties.

Although this role is predominantly off rota, there will be times where you will be required to provide hands on support. You will also carry out other duties designated by the manager and will be required to be the Acting Branch Manager in their absence.

Previous senior/leadership experience is required for this role and you must be working towards or have attained your SVQ/NVQ Level 3. You will be familiar with relevant legislation, budget management and administration and you will have previous experience in learning disabilities, mental health, complex needs and Positive Behaviour Support.

The Deputy Branch Manager role is a 37.5hr contract primarily working Monday to Friday although some flexibility will be required in order to meet the needs of the individuals and provide effective support to the staff team. This will also include part of a 24/7 on call rota which includes evenings and weekends.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work with a wonderful team and as an organisation we will also support you to develop your skills and work towards relevant Care Management Qualifications.




*COVID19 safety is important to us all, we support our staff and the people we support to stay safe by wearing correct PPE, including Type IIR Fluid Resistant Surgical Masks (FRSM), aprons and gloves at all times. We have a in-house team that ensures that all of our services have plenty of PPE at all times.  All care and support is carried out following the latest Government guidance.  Our aim is to keep you and the people we support safe.”
