Service Manager

London, Greater London (On-site)
Starting at £38,369.69 and rising incrementally to £41,528.80 per annum
Job description

The Gray's Inn Road supported accommodation project is an exciting new service, designed to support the mission to address rough sleeping through provision of a 16-bed short stay accommodation service.

Funded by the Department of Levelling Up Housing and Communities and the Greater London Authority, and operated in collaboration with One Housing Group and Camden Council, you will lead in setting up and delivering this new service which is aligned with a strategic vision – to make rough sleeping rare, brief, and non-recurrent.

About the role:

As the Service manager you will ensure that the service is delivered to specification, whilst remaining flexible to respond to local authority and organisational priorities. You will oversee referral and move-on processes, emphasizing ongoing client assessments and creation of personalised support plans which promote independence. The Service manager will direct the team for a consistent, high-quality, and responsive service - maximising opportunities to support the reduction of rough sleeping.

Your oversight of daily keywork, coaching, group work, and access to external services reflects a commitment to identifying suitable next placements and addressing urgent presenting needs. Managing commissioning, statutory, and internal monitoring requirements, attending contract monitoring forums, and ensuring policy adherence contribute to maintaining the service's high standards. Your dedication to quality and monitoring directly impacts client outcomes, ensuring they receive the support necessary for their recovery and overall well-being.

About you:

  • You will have proven experience in leading and directing teams effectively, ensuring a consistent, high-quality, and responsive service.
  • Demonstrated capability in building and maintaining strong partnerships with key organisations and stakeholders in the sector.
  • Experience of leading teams to deliver client focused support, including detailed assessments, onward referrals, and tailored interventions for individuals facing multiple disadvantages.
  • Dedication to safeguarding vulnerable adults, ensuring the quality of risk management plans to reduce and manage risk, whilst creating opportunities to promote independence.
  • Experience of embedding and managing continuous improvement in Health & Safety and Housing Management processes to maintain a safe and compliant environment for residents and staff.
