Typically 37 hours a week but as required for the satisfactory performance of the role
Mosaic is a long established and successful disability charity helping improve the lives of people living with disability in Leicestershire & Rutland. We are a not for profit organisation who employ 100+ staff and over 50 volunteers. The team have undergone significant change during the last 6 months and we now have a great opportunity for an experienced CEO to continue the delivery of the change plans, update of our working methods to modernise and transition our operations to the next phase of change and growth.

You will have responsibility for leading the strategy, our overall governance framework and development of robust business plans and budgets, delivering streamlined operations and monitoring performance and risk.

This post requires someone who has a proven track record within a not for profit enterprise and who is commercially astute and able to attain outstanding performance from a range of internal and external teams to ensure that we maximise returns and deliver service agreements whilst remaining focused on the customer.

If you have the ambition, credentials and values to help steer our charity to the next level, we would love to hear from you.

You will be responsible for four key services including:-

• Colton Care Domiciliary Services - this is CQC inspected and is led by a Registered manager
• Cre8ing Opportunities - provides day services and group activities for disabled adults with a wide range of disabilities,
• Deprivation of Living Standards (DOLS) - ensures people who cannot consent to their care arrangements in a care home or hospital are protected if those arrangements deprive them of their liberty – we provide an assessor to check they are necessary and in the person’s best interests.
• Direct Payments Support Team – provides support to disabled people receiving a Personal Budget to manage their finances

You will develop a keen understanding of these funding streams across all areas, supporting the processes with your strong financial acumen.

Your role will be to lead and guide your management team and these services so that they adapt and develop in response to current need, best practice in service provision, and are able to meet the challenges of financial sustainability. At the same time you will ensure that the charity remains future focused and identify opportunities and new ways of working to do more for people living with disability in Leicestershire.

You will be expected to be familiar with the requirements of CQC, have a proven track record as a senior manager and be able to demonstrate experience and a clear record of establishing financial sustainability for services, so that you can support and lead your leadership team and negotiate successfully with commissioners.

Ideally you will have a Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care or equivalent or be qualified by experience.

Any offer is made subject to satisfactory references to the business and an Enhanced disclosure from the Disclosure & Barring service (DBS) will be essential if successful.
