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 with a positive and can-do approach to manage our care home in Carlisle. At Durranhill Care Home we provide an intensive rehabilitation to individuals leaving hospital after an extended stay in a mental health unit or locked rehabilitation unit. We also accept individuals from a number of other avenues. We are a 10 bed residential project with full 24 hour support, set in over one acre of beautiful gardens.
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 reviewing the services we deliver and implementing changes to improve them – you’ll do all of this, and more.
You will have substantial experience of contract management and the competency it takes to manage regulated activity and attain relevant qualifications as well as meeting the standards required by CQC. A proven ability to develop business plans and manage budgets is important too, as is an up-to-date understanding of the recovery model and the ability to ensure the safe management and administration of medication. Outcome focused, with a collaborative and flexible approach, you're great at motivating and inspiring others, adept at managing conflicting priorities, negotiate with tact and diplomacy and have good investigation skills.
Subsequent salary progression up to a maximum of £29,290.00 will apply to this post, subject to the postholder meeting the eligibility and performance criteria
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.
So, get inspired today and take the first steps towards a more fulfilling career.
Closing date: 30 May2018.
