The role will also support the company's 300 staff, and senior management team to deliver exceptional levels of quality care, overseeing a Board of Trustees, and forming part of the charities wider management team.
Our client would be looking to appoint somebody with a strong sense of career mobility, and would expect the successful canddiate to be able to assume a wider managerial position with the charity in the medium to long-term.
The ideal candidate will already be working for another well-respected, larger social care provider currently, either within an Operational or Regional Management capacity, or maybe working within a senior Director capacity for a smaller charity or social care provider, and would like to the chance to be able to work at a more strategic Board level.
In addition to this, candidates will have a strong operational social care background, having managed a number of care services for service users with Learning Difficulties or Complex Care, and will possess strong leadership and commissioning experience. The ideal candidate will have worked with a Board of Trustees previously, or have reported directly into one, and will have the ability to effectively communicate and execute corporate strategy.
The ideal candidate will be a 'hands on' team player, who places the service user and staff at the heart of decision making. The successful candidate will have sound commercial acumen, with a proven track-record of managing a similar care portfolio or region in terms of financial P & L accountability.
