ROLE OVERVIEW

As a leader in health care and support services for individuals throughout the UK, Voyage Care supports thousands of people with learning and physical disabilities, brain injuries, autism and other needs. We operate over 400 care homes and 20 rehabilitation centres across the country and we provide specialist care and support to people at home and in the wider community…and we’re growing every day!

Voyage Care are currently recruiting a service manager for a brand new opportunity to expand and grow within the Greater Manchester area. We are currently establishing a presence in Greater Manchester for outreach and supported living schemes to support people with learning disabilities and additional needs. You will be integral to the success of growth in this area and be committed to the principles of supporting people effectively in both supported living and outreach settings. Voyage Care prides itself on delivering high quality care so you will lead and develop a staff team that delivers each person the best possible support.

We are looking for someone who is extremely motivated and driven with experience in liaising and developing relationships with local authorities. You will have a strong track record of business development and growth. Additionally, you will have experience working in supported living settings and of managing multi-site teams, and a demonstrable track record of supporting people with learning disabilities is essential.

For this post it goes without saying that you will have full working knowledge of the ‘essential Standards of Quality and Safety’, REACH Standards and Supporting People’s Quality Assessment Framework.  .

Financially astute and exceptionally organized, you will join us with a Registered Managers Award plus your Level 5 Diploma or equivalent qualification or be eligible to complete the Level 5 Diploma. You will certainly be experienced in care management and will possess excellent knowledge of Care Standards, Regulations and Valuing People. Above all, you should be as approachable, as reliable and as dedicated as we are, and you’ll be poised to hit the ground running.

We ensure that the people we support reach their full potential – and of course we’ll make sure that you reach yours.

Due to the nature of this post, a full UK driving license is essential as travel across all areas in Greater Manchester will be required.
