At least two years’ experience of working within a children's setting at a senior level.

Due to location, it is essential that you have a full UK driving licence and access to a car. 

The Deputy Care Manager is an important management role. You will be leading the home's operation during any period of duty management and holding case co-ordinating responsibility.  The person appointed to this role will play a pivotal part in consolidating and developing care practice within the Services.

The successful candidate will be one of a team of 5 Deputy Care Managers supporting the Registered Manager and Head of Care. Deputy Care Managers lead shift teams, hold casework co-ordination roles for key children, support individual team members’ professional development and deputise for the Registered Manager whilst acting as duty senior.

This is a great opportunity for someone within a social work, health or educational environment who wishes to extend their experience, or for those who aspire to the management role as the next stage in their development.

Your current post may have contractual obligations to repay training costs for diplomas or other significant courses if you leave. Our client value's that experience and therefore if you were successful in securing a role with our client, they would relieve you of that obligation to your current employer and meet those costs.

- General organisation and operation of the home on set designated shift times

- Be responsible when on shift for the co-ordination of all medical aspects of the running of the home with regard to children

- Monitor Child Protection issues as per policy

- Have an outline knowledge of Local Authority Services, placing agencies and how they are involved with the home
