Job description

Do you have a passion for ensuring people with learning disabilities live fulfilled lives? Do you want to help lead a community that values people for who they are and what they can do? 

L’Arche London is a community of more than 100 people with and without learning disabilities. It is a place of belonging where people with learning disabilities can live independent, yet connected lives. We’re looking for someone to join us as our Head of Support and Care, the registered manager for our supported housing scheme and registered care home, which support 34 people with learning disabilities.

You will lead a small supportive team of seven coordinators and deputies. Together your team will ensure that we provide and develop high quality person-centred care supporting the practical, social and spiritual needs of those who call L’Arche home.

You will be joining us at an exciting time as we’re looking to increase choice for the people we support and explore ways that we can grow.

We’re part of an international federation of L’Arche Communities in over thirty-five countries worldwide. We welcome people of all faiths and none, although our roots are Christian. Our vision is a world where everyone belongs.

Knowledge and experience in care or supported housing would be useful for this role, but far more essential is an enthusiasm for our values and the ability to inspire others. You might be looking to step up as a manager or to use your management experience in a different way. If you are interested in being part of a mutually supportive and lively community, then we want to hear from you!

"At L'Arche there is always room at the table..."
Richard, L'Arche London Community Member

To apply please send a CV and a letter of around two sides of A4, outlining how your experience, knowledge, skills and values meet the person specification. The closing date has been extended to 9am on Monday 16 March 2020. Interviews will be held w/c 23 March 2020.
