Job description

This is a good time to join St Martins of Tours (SMOT); we are embarking on an exciting service-wide development programme, and are looking for dynamic individuals to support us with our change process. 


SMOT are a London based provider of registered care and supported accommodation for people with mental health needs.  Currently, we can support up to 85 people, and we have projects in Islington, Haringey, Brent and Lambeth with some exciting plans for all our services.  We are an ambitious organisation, aiming to provide high quality services which are recognised for being effective and flexible.

We work closely with statutory mental health services and our partner agencies to provide a recovery based approach.  Our aim is to provide our service users with the opportunity to progress from our services, onto living more independently within the community.


This is a new role at St Martins, and it will be an important part of the team driving the organisation forwards.  The role will be key in supporting the development of our care services moving forwards, as we formalise our referral, assessment and placement pathways by making them more effective and personalised.  


Job Purpose:

  1. the main purpose of the role will be to ensure the efficient and effective delivery of a recovery based model within a specialist mental health housing association.
  2. the post-holder will oversee and assure provision of high quality, safe and responsive services ensuring the service is outcome focused and responds to the needs of service users within registered care homes or supported living accommodation.
  3. the post-holder will provide robust leadership and day-to-day leadership across operational service areas.


Job Summary:

The role will require expertise in mental health, and will work within the following areas:


  1. providing leadership and operational management to the SMOT’s individual service managers, and demonstrating a clear direction to all teams linked to standards of care
  2. actively implementing a range of service developments
  3. proactively managing the overall clinical governance agenda
  4. identifying potential future service developments
  5. supporting the development and implementation of new services
  6. working in partnership with other agencies and our local communities
