Vulnerable children in the UK need your help

Wherever you work in the Action for Children family, you'll be helping to change the lives of the most vulnerable children in the UK.

Last year, we helped more than 670,000 children and families across the UK. From direct work in communities to national campaigning, we are focused on making sure every child has a safe and happy childhood, and the foundations they need to thrive.

Why Action for Children?

Working here is more than a job. Everyone in the Action for Children family is passionate about protecting and supporting children. It's the sense of purpose that drives us every single day. Because we know that, when we work together, we can make a huge difference to bring lasting improvements to vulnerable children's lives.

A bit about the role

As Registered Manager you will work with a range of professionals, parents and carers in the Derbyshire and East Midlands area to ensure that our children and young people who have a varying level of learning and physical disabilities are supported with a person-centred approach, helping them to develop to their full potential and through the next stage of their life journey.

As Registered Manager you will lead, inspire, and motivate your team to hold the highest aspirations for our children and young people and oversee the running of our 4 bedroom home liaising closely with Ofsted to ensure regulatory compliance and excellence. We will actively support you in your role and provide you and your team with specialist training, development, and supervision.

How you'll help to create brighter futures

Some key responsibilities of your role as a Registered Manager will be;

  • Establishing a new long stay children's home for children and young people with learning and physical disabilities including the recruitment and induction of a new staff team.
  • Providing high quality supportive 1:1 and reflective supervision to direct reports.
  • Promoting and delivering the highest standards of safeguarding practice utilising existing processes and best practice to create a safe positive work and service environment.
  • Developing and maintaining effective working relationships and maintain channels of communication with colleagues, community organisations, partner agencies and other external agencies.
  • Developing and maintaining effective networks, relationships, partnerships, and contacts to improve outcomes for children, young people and families.
  • To work closely with Ofsted to ensure we are operating a home that is deemed to be offering each child high quality care through effective leadership and management.

Let's talk about you

Whilst a management qualification Level 5 would be great, we are open to those with experience in a management role within a residential/social care setting. 

  • At least 2 years experience in the last 5 years of working in a position relevant to residential childcare and at least 1 years experience in a leadership role.
  • Creating an inclusive service, in terms of meeting the needs of the children and establishing a workforce that further enables an inclusive environment.
  • Knowledge and understanding of the OFSTED requirements.
  • Demonstrable experience of working with children with complex needs.
  • Experience of leading by example with the application of safeguarding practices and policies.

We look forward to receiving your application
