Reboot West is an innovative programme trialling the use of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) approaches to help care leavers across the region to succeed in education, training and work. We are now expanding the programme and are seeking a new Operations Manager to lead the current, highly skilled team of up to seven EET and Wellbeing Coaches. We are particularly keen to increase applications from Black and Minority Ethnic groups and men as they are currently under-represented.
We are a leading youth homelessness charity based in the South West, working with over 2,500 young people. We have strong local partnerships and adhere to the best practice in the sector. We build trusting relationships between our young people and our colleagues and this is at the core of our work.
What we are looking for:
- You are able to enthuse and motivate others to deliver creative and effective services to young people who’ve experienced trauma, disadvantage and discrimination.
- You are committed to the principles of Psychologically Informed Environments (PIE) and the use of reflective practice in your work.
- You are keen to learn more about ACT and develop your own and your team’s ability to use it in your work practice.
- You are able to understand, interpret and monitor financial and performance management data.
- You thrive when working under pressure, juggling tasks whilst remaining positive and focussed.
What you will be doing:
- You will support, motivate and manage a team of up to seven EET and Wellbeing Coaches, including one Senior Coach.
- Through constructive communication with partner organisations (e.g. local authority colleagues, employers and training providers) you will share learning and jointly develop innovative solutions to meet care leavers’ needs.
- You will be focused on outcomes and ensure contract targets are achieved by checking, collating and presenting quantitative and qualitative data.
Your line manager will be our Senior Operations Manager.
What we are offering:
- An opportunity to work in a psychologically informed environment (PIE) and develop experience of using ACT in a non-clinical setting, with support and supervision from the world leading professional on ACT for adolescents.
- Very generous annual leave entitlement of 30 days per annum plus Bank Holidays.
- Flexible working hours.
- A very supportive environment with reflective practice, regular supervisions, team and cross departmental and company development days.
- Hours per week: 37.5 (this represents full-time hours)

- Pay: £30,451 to £32,910 per annum
