Job description

About us

We are an award-wining and fast-growing local charity with an established reputation for making a real difference in the lives of people who have a learning disability and/or autism. Rooted in our local community we provide services and opportunities for our neurodiverse clients, including a wide range of creative workshops, learning and skills development courses and community projects through to employment support, work experience and job progression. We are proud to have won a Yorkshire and Humberside Social Enterprise Award with the judges comenting that we are "...a small but mighty organisation with so much passion and enthusiasm to make a real difference for their community”.


Our aim is to enable and empower our clients to develop their confidence, skills, independence, talents, health and inclusion –assisting them to lead the best quality, most fulfilled lives they can. Our services are in demand so we are now looking for an Assistant Manager who can help ensure we have the highest standards of service management, quality and delivery as we grow. 


The role

This is an exciting opportunity to join the Outside the Box management team in a role that will combine planning, development, operational management and resource, staff and volunteer management. Working closely with our tutors, support workers, job coaches, volunteers and clients, the role is a varied one that spans recruitment, client support, quality assurance, content/curriculum development, team management, monitoring and evaluation,  marketing and much more. As a relatively small charity with dynamic and person-centred services, the role requires balancing practical tasks with management and forward planning. Whilst every day may be different, helping to oversee and support the high performance and continuous improvement of our client services is at the core of the role.


About you

You may have a background in post-16 education, training or employment support or experience in delivering and developing 'day' services for adults with a learning disability. You will certainly have a passion for our work, strong people management skills and a proven commitment to best quality and continuous improvement. The ability to adapt and embrace a changing, innovative environment and to model and support person-centred, impactful support for our client community are key.
