The Job:
This is a varied and exciting role for the right individual. This role represents an excellent opportunity for an experienced and enthusiastic operations manager to contribute to our developing service during an exciting time for the Child Brain Injury Trust.

You will be joining us at a time when we are reshaping our service to meet the future needs of families, focussing on early intervention, community inclusion, education support and helping isolated and hard to reach communities. As a Deputy Service Manager, you will be instrumental in supporting the Head of Brain Injury Services in reshaping the service and supporting the management of the day-to-day operations.

This role requires someone who is Innovative, forward thinking, outcomes focussed and a great communicator at all levels. It requires someone with a knowledge of the support networks families affected by ABI access, and someone who will be able to develop a great relationship with clinical colleagues across the major trauma network of hospitals as well as have an understanding of how different Health Trusts and Boards operate and work across the UK.

Our Deputy Service Manager will provide direct line management to three Lead ABI Coordinators who in turn support three separate teams of ABI Coordinators. As we reshape and develop the service further, the Deputy Service Manager will lead a specific service within the Brain Injury Team, focusing on improving health outcomes for individuals at an early stage of injury or illness. Reporting directly to the Head of Brain Injury Services, the post-holder will need to work closely and effectively with the Head of Brain Injury Services, having clear and open dialogue at all times.

The post-holder will have experience of neurodiversity, and a comprehensive understanding of the current operating environment within the disability or ABI sector. As part of the management team, you will work alongside all department leads within the Child Brain Injury Trust, ensuring that the strategy set by our CEO and leadership team is fully and clearly implemented and communicated.

You will need to be values driven, be a good team player with excellent interpersonal and communication skills as well as have the ability to work independently and to lead teams and work streams of your own, with a clear sense of direction and purpose.

While operational experience is key and an added advantage, the skills and qualities of a deputy service manager are key to carrying out the role effectively.
