Does your background include having worked in a mental health service setting based on social inclusion and recovery? 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 is an 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 that we can tailor to meet local and individual needs.

Right now, one of our partners, Richmond Fellowship, in conjunction with the local NHS team, is looking for a Team Leader at their Isle of Wight Safe Haven service. In providing community based support for those in distress and crisis, we enable individuals to progress their recovery at a pace appropriate for them. But, it’s only possible with the help of people like you.

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 building maintenance. We’ll also rely on you to develop a service/location training and development plan and look after the service’s budget. Managing all aspects of risk will be important too, as will ensuring data entry onto our MI and reporting systems is 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 significant knowledge and experience of working in mental health and undertaking risk assessments. You will be solution focused and outcome driven, with a firm but inclusive, open and encouraging management style, lots of tact and diplomacy and the ability to lead by example. We’ll also be looking for a flexible approach to working hours and a willingness to participate in an on call rota. Adept at managing conflicting demands and priorities, motivating staff and delegating work also comes naturally to you.

The postholder will be required to work evenings and weekends.

Subsequent salary progression up to a maximum of £24,485.00 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.
