Has your in-depth understanding of mental health issues been gained working in a health and social care environment supporting individuals in crisis or with complex needs? Do you have excellent leadership and communication skills? Would you like to be part of an organisation that counts on the professionalism, insight, expertise and passion of its staff to inspire individual recovery for the people they work with? Then join us as a Team Leader.
Recovery Focus are expert partners with the shared aim to inspire individual recovery nationwide. Between us we have a track record of more than 200 years of developing and running personalised services that work with people with mental health, substance misuse and other complex needs to achieve their ambitions.
Right now, one of our partners, Richmond Fellowship, is looking for Team Leaders to implement and lead a team across a number of new Crisis Services in Blackpool, Preston and Blackburn. The new services, launching between November 2017 and March 2018, will provide support and short term interventions for people experiencing a mental health crisis based in hospital settings.
In this vital front line management role, you’ll be responsible for everything from the day-to-day management of service contracts and staff, through to client support and quality assurance. We’ll also rely on you to develop a service training and development plan and ensure policies and procedures are followed at all times. Managing all aspects of risk will be important too, as will ensuring data entry onto our Management Information Systems in an accurate and timely. In short, you’ll do everything you can to make sure the quality of the service we provide is nothing less than exceptional.
To succeed, you’ll need to be solution focused and outcome driven, with a firm but inclusive and encouraging management style. Passion and enthusiasm to deliver outstanding support is essential. We’ll also be looking for a flexible approach to working hours and a willingness to participate in an on call rota. You will be skilled at managing conflicting demands and priorities, and motivating staff and delegating work also comes naturally to you. Finally, if you have a relevant professional social care qualification to go with your impressive experience in a related field, it may be advantageous!
