Has your experience of health and social care management given you a good understanding of CQC regulations? 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 Registered Manager.

Recovery Focus is a new group of expert charities 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. Each partner organisation has its own rich history of success, but together we believe we can lead the way in evidence‐based recovery pathways, tailored to meet local and individual needs.

Right now, one of our partners, Richmond Fellowship, is looking for a Registered Manager within one of our existing supported housing services, which is newly CQC registered.  Eastbank Road and Park Road are 12 and 24 hour supported housing schemes, where we work with individuals to develop a specific package of support using the Recovery Star framework. We support individuals to regain skills and confidence to achieve greater independence. We work with individuals to take control of their support, develop coping strategies and better manage their mental health. In addition to this, we support our tenants to maintain their tenancy, work on aspects of daily living, and access volunteering and employment opportunities.

As well as responsibility for the operational management of the service, including service delivery within policies, procedures and quality standards, you’ll make sure we comply with relevant legislation. You’ll also manage team leaders and/or recovery workers and help the locality manager to prepare and deliver business plans and budgets. Preparing the service for inspection visits to achieve an ‘Outstanding’ rating, managing contracts and risk, monitoring compliance and implementing improvement plans – you’ll do all of this, and more.

You will have substantial experience leading and motivating a team, as well as the ability to manage change effectively. Building relationships will be vital to this role, specifically with commissioners, community mental health teams and your internal colleagues.

Experience working within Mental Health is essential, as is a good understanding of medication, risk management, safety planning and CQC regulations. The successful candidate will be outcome focused and have a flexible approach; as well as having the ability to motivate and inspire others, manage conflicting priorities and negotiate with tact and diplomacy.

In return, you can expect some great benefits, including 25 days' annual leave plus statutory bank holidays and a contributory pension scheme after a qualifying period.
