Changing Faces is looking for an experienced, qualified, innovative Service Manager to lead us through an exciting time in our Wellbeing Service.
Working closely with the Head of Wellbeing Service, the successful candidate will lead the development and implementation of our new clinical model and head up good practice and quality assurance across our range of wellbeing services to people affected by a visible difference.
We are always looking for talented people from all backgrounds to join us and help improve the lives of people with visible differences. Changing Faces is committed to achieving greater staff diversity. We welcome applications from people from all sections of the community irrespective of race, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief. In line with our commitments to race equity, we are particularly seeking applications from people of colour/ people from BAME backgrounds. We actively encourage people with a visible difference to apply. We are also always open to conversations about flexible working.
People with visible differences are vulnerable to isolation, loneliness, social anxiety and low self-esteem. They face staring, harassment, bullying and even hate crime. They experience lowered expectations in school, problems getting work and stereotyping in the media. This can have a devastating, and lasting, impact on their wellbeing – we know one in three people with a visible difference feels depressed, sad or anxious because of how they look.
Changing Faces provides unique practical, social and emotional support for children, young people and adults affected by visible difference, we challenge discrimination, and we campaign for a world that respects difference.
Our Wellbeing services build confidence and resilience – giving people the tools to manage their feelings, cope in different social settings, handle other people’s reactions or deal with transitions such as starting school, university or work. We are going through an important period of change and development in the Wellbeing Services – both launching our national children and young people’s model and embarking on a revisioning and redefinition of our 1-1 and clinical model across the service.
Changing Faces wants a future where everyone with a visible difference on their face or body has the confidence, support and opportunity to lead the lives they want.
Salary range / benefits: £37,938.34 – £42,688.68 (Changing Faces’ policy is to offer posts at the first point on this scale / negotiable); 25 days basic holiday; 6% pension contribution
