Due to the retirement of the previous Head of Adult care FHC is recruiting to this key post. All the current services are run on site or in the local community in a setting that combines a beautiful semirural/coaching town location with easy access to the motorway network. Three of the four services are provided in purpose-built well-designed buildings; the fourth (the Day service) has had significant refurbishment in the last two years.

This post requires someone with wide experience of current developments in service provision across the sector. You will be responsible for four key services including St Joseph’s Residential Care home for the elderly and dementia and three Disability services: a residential service for adults with profound disabilities, a Day service, and Domiciliary care for adults with moderate learning disabilities. Three of these are CQC inspected and are led by Registered managers.

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 to financial sustainability presented by the external environment. At the same time you will be open to the development of new services.

You will be expected to have substantial Adult care experience, be familiar with the requirements of CQC, have senior management experience and a clear record of establishing financial sustainability for services, so that you can support and lead your management team, and negotiate successfully with commissioners.

A Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care or equivalent is required as a minimum.

An Enhanced disclosure from the Disclosure & Barring service (DBS) will be essential if successful.

Closing date 5 p.m. 20/11/2018 Interview date 27/11/2018
