Job Advert

Does your substantial social care 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 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 that we can tailor to meet local and individual needs.

Right now, one of our partners, Richmond Fellowship, is looking for a Team Manager to join the team at our new service in Surrey, providing employment advisors situated within the seven Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) providers to deliver employment support.

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 to 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. And, if you have a relevant professional qualification to go with your impressive experience, even better.

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

Subsequent salary progression up to a maximum of £26,401.00 will apply to this post, subject to the postholder meeting the eligibility and performance criteria.

So, get inspired today. Visit our website and take the first steps towards a more fulfilling career.

Closing date:  31st August 2018

Interview date:  19th September 2018
