About KIDS

Passionate, caring and trusted since 1970, KIDS is a national charity that provides more than 120 different services and works with around 80 Local Authorities across England in order to help disabled children and young people develop independence and achieve their aspirations. As well as working with individuals from birth through to age 25, we offer invaluable support and practical help for their families too, in environments where there’s a real sense of achievement. The work can be challenging, and humbling at times, but it’s also hugely rewarding and meaningful. Maybe that’s why our staff tend to stay with us for many years. 

About The Role

Do you have a good understanding of the health and social care sector and its funding streams, plus proven experience of managing service planning and delivery and ensuring compliance with statutory contract and quality standards? Would you like to make the most of your skills and experience in the third sector, for a worthy cause? Then KIDS, has the ideal role for you.

As Regional Manager you will lead and be accountable for a variety of Regulated and non regulated services within the South region.  Participating in the development and improvement of the region as directed by the National Operations Director and other Executive Membership team (ELT) to ensure KIDS delivers its strategic objectives.

You will work alongside the National Operations Director to provide leadership to a variety of services, and ensuring those services meet and exceed regulatory requirements like Ofsted and CQC will be a regular feature of the role, as will supporting the implementation of business plans for the region. Working closely with families and children and young people to ensure they’re involved in service planning and design and driving a culture of quality and continuous improvement throughout my client’s services – these are just two of the challenges that come with a rewarding role that will definitely give you a strong sense of purpose and achievement.

The role of Regional Manager South West is home based but requires candidates to be near Wiltshire or South Gloucestershire with regular travel across this area and Hampshire. 

About You

This is a great opportunity to utilise your skills gained in a health or social care setting, ideally as a Registered Manager, you’ll need a Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People's Service and a management/business and/or finance, social work or nursing qualification. You’ll also need a proven ability to inspire, motivate and develop geographically dispersed teams and influence and negotiate at a strategic level with commissioners, funders and regulators alike. A track record of managing comparable budgets and resources is also required, as is experience of change management, including leading a team through significant changes. As comfortable putting safeguarding principles into practice as you are providing advice and guidance on operational management, you’re a firm believer in keeping abreast of the relevant key policies and good practice too, and have the self-motivation it takes to work independently when required.

Further characteristics are shown within the full job description, so if you believe you possess the skills, knowledge and experience we are looking for, we would love to receive your application.
