Creative Support, a not-for-profit provider of social care services, is pleased to be working in partnership with Liverpool City Council to provide a floating support service for vulnerable adults across North Liverpool. The service provides a tiered, time-limited support service for adults and young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in the community. You will work with individuals with a range of support needs including mental health issues, alcohol and substance misuse issues, people with a learning disability and/or physical disability and people from the refugee community. The service will be based at a Community Hub in North Liverpool which will house the support team, provide drop-in services, courses and activities and a touch-base service.
As the Project Manager you will lead and coordinate the support service across North Liverpool, managing our Community Hub Coordinator and the Referrals and Allocations Coordinator. You will be responsible for ensuring the effective and consistent delivery of the service. You will work with our commissioners, senior colleagues and other key stakeholders to ensure the service provides value for money and achieves key outcomes as part of the commissioning standards and key performance indicators. You will be an effective operational manager, with a track record in robust staff performance management, financial management and contract management.
You will ensure that the service provided is responsive to the needs and preferences of service users and you will work the senior staff team to develop partnerships with the other service providers, external agencies, services and community groups that will be beneficial to the emotional, physical and financial wellbeing of the people we support.
As a manager you must have a professional approach with the ability to supervise, coach and guide the staff team to deliver a consistently personalised service. You will need excellent written and verbal communication skills and you will be fully IT literate. A relevant social care qualification is desirable and experience within a community-based support service is essential. You will have the ability to maintain excellent records and meet monitoring requirements as set out by the Council.
