We are looking for Deputy Manager who has excellent leadership skills to work in one of our projects in Oxford (City Patch). You will be supporting individuals with severe and enduring mental health needs to live their lives in a positive way, and assist them to improve their physical and mental well-being and promote and encourage as much independence as possible. To do this you will attend and facilitate professional meetings when needed to ensure a cohesive and shared approach is being adopted by all agencies involved in supporting our residents. You will also provide day to day line management and supervision to a small team of support staff, in partnership with the Area Manager.

The ideal candidate for this position will have a track record of working with service users in the Mental Health or similar field and will ideally have previous experience with your own client caseload. You will have experience of working to safeguard and protect vulnerable residents/potential residents and manage crisis situations. This may involve raising safeguarding alerts and organising and attending multidisciplinary meetings. You will be expected to ensure; where possible, that family and friends are fully involved in the creation of bespoke support plans that guide the recovery of residents

Experience within a care or mental health setting is desirable, qualifications are advantageous, however, we have a Learning & Development team who will support you and your personal development and work to progress your career with us!

Above all, we are looking for people that share our values below and want to make a real difference to people’s lives:

Caring – Our residents are the heart and soul of all that we do, we provide person-centred care that enables residents to live a life worth living. We believe that differences should be celebrated, and each resident’s uniqueness enhances not only our community, but also the support we provide.

Safe – Honest and open relationships help to make all of our residents feel safe, and we provide a safe place for recovery for as long as a resident may require.

Creative – Continuous learning from one another is key. When working with a resident at their own pace there is/ are many ways to get creative with how they are supported.

Aspirational – Recovery is focused on what a resident can do, not what they can’t.

The role can be challenging but very rewarding. You will be able to use your initiative and demonstrate your leadership skills to ensure that residents are empowered and supported to work towards their life goals and independence.

Response is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We aspire to achieve an equal and diverse workforce.  Disabled applicants who meet the essential criteria of the Person Specification will be given an interview. All roles have a requirement for successful applicants to hold a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check (formerly CRB check) obtained by Response.
