Integral to this will be the overseeing of all operational aspects of Spectrum’s care services as the charity’s Registered Individual.

Since it began in 1982, Spectrum has grown to become a leading provider of specialist care for autistic individuals in Cornwall. We are a registered charity and proud of our track record working with children and adults with complex and challenging needs. We operate 18 residential homes, a community outreach service and a specialist education centre.

As our Head of Operations, your key responsibilities will include:

  • the leadership, development, and oversight of an effective governance framework for Spectrum’s services and ensuring risk mitigation controls
  • identifying opportunities for continuous service development and improvement
  • building and leading management capability amongst our registered managers
  • the flow of information from houses to the Senior Team and board of trustees
  • deputising for Spectrum’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) when necessary

To be successful in your new role you will need to:

  • have a broad knowledge of the Care Sector and autism specific support
  • hold a relevant Management Qualification or equivalent experiential learning
  • experience of building positive relationships with regulatory bodies (CQC and Ofsted), local authorities, government partners and key stakeholders
  • have the capacity to quickly idenitify potential risks and key actions required 
  • effectively delegate roles and tasks to actively manage and control resources
  • be a responsible leader with an analytical and strategic mind
  • be flexible in your approach, transparent and an excellent communicator
  • able to build and coach skilled and motivated teams to Spectrum’s value-base
