At Carers First, we understand that caring can be hard, but believe getting the right help should not be. Obtaining relevant information and support can itself be a challenge, but with it, carers can thrive. That is why Carers First offers several avenues for people to get the help they need either online, on the phone or within their community. We offer timely advice and work with carers and their families to identify the best way forward, for them. There are many reasons people require care, including illness, disability, mental health issues or addiction.
We are currently seeking an experienced Service Manager to lead our community teams in the London Boroughs of Newham and Hackney. The requirements of the role will include day to day operational management of our services in the boroughs, leading on relationships with commissioners and key stakeholders and working with carers to ensure that all services make a positive difference to their lives.
To be successful you will have experience of managing multiple work streams ensuring contract compliance and funder requirements are met, excellent leadership skills demonstrating experience of supporting and developing teams and a good working knowledge of social care and health. The role requires excellent communication, interpersonal and written skills.
In return, you will benefit from working for a not-for-profit organisation that delivers a service which makes a real difference to people’s lives. We offer training and development to help you grow your career, good annual leave entitlement, flexible working options, access to our work-place pension, employee assistance programme and a Benenden Healthcare package.
