Job description

You’ve got an understanding of mental health issues and substantial experience of working in employment services. All you need is the perfect environment to put your skills to great use. Welcome to Richmond Fellowship as a Service Manager.

Right now, we’re looking for someone like you to manage the day-to-day running of our Employment service in Aylesbury at the Sue Nicholls Centre. We’re a job regain and retention service embedded and working alongside Oxford Health NHS IAPT and our team provides support, advice and guidance to people in work as well as those either out of work or off sick. As well as ensuring the quality of service and support provided to people who use our services, with support from our Area Manager, we’ll rely on you to manage service contracts and line manage front line staff. Whether you’re carrying out an induction, undertaking an investigation, putting team development plans in place or providing support to our business development team, one thing’s for sure – you won't be short of challenge and variety.

We expect you to have substantial experience gained managing a caseload of individuals with mental health and employment needs, as well as being outcome driven and able to lead by example using your firm but inclusive management style. You’re open and encouraging too, and have lots of tact and diplomacy. What's more, you're great at managing conflicting priorities on time, have a flexible attitude to working hours and are willing to participate in on call arrangements. And, if you have experience of carrying out investigations, writing reports/recommendations or managing budgets, even better, although it's not essential.

The post holder will need to have a full and clean drivers licence and access to their own vehicle. 

We offer great benefits including non‐contributory life assurance policy (to the value of 3 x annual salary), a contributory pension scheme and employee assistance programme. The Service Manager role will report to the Richmond Fellowship Area Manager, who will provide regular supervision and support.

The salary for this post is £ £27,546 with progression to £28,879 per annum.

This is a permanent role.

This is a full time role requiring the post holder to work 37.5 hours per week.

Recovery Focus is committed to working towards equal opportunities and we select staff solely on merit irrespective of race, colour, national or ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, age, social class, religious belief, disability or history of mental health or addiction problems. If you need support to apply for the role or adaptions at interview please contact the recruitment team to discuss.

This is a rolling recruitment process. Candidates will be interviewed as and when they are shortlisted.

But we also know that if we provide the right support, at the right time, we can inspire recovery nationwide and that recovery is possible for everyone.
