Creative Support is a national, fast growing not-for-profit organisation providing support to individuals with a wide range of care needs. We are currently looking to add a Supported Living Manager to our team in Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire.

We are recruiting a highly motivated, professional individual to join our exciting service, which accommodates 20 individuals in central Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire. The Supported Living Manager will oversee and develop the high-quality housing with care scheme for people with a learning disability and/or autism, some of whom may have other support needs including physical disabilities and mental health needs. Poplar Tree Avenue is a new-build scheme of 12 self-contained flats and 8 bungalows, situated in the town of Scunthorpe.

Our focus is to provide person-centred, outcome-focused support, which enables people to lead fulfilling and valued lives, maintain their tenancies, participate in the local community, develop independent living skills and achieve their personal goals. The Supported Living Manager will ensure that the service maximises positive outcomes and aspires to the highest standards of service delivery, contract and CQC compliance. You will be responsible for all aspects of operational management, including:

• Leading, managing and supervising a team of staff
• Ensuring that caring and respectful personalised support is provided at all times
• Achieving positive outcomes for all service users
• Managing the accommodation and facilities effectively and ensuring that they are maintained to a high standard
• Ensuring that the service is provided in accordance with the individual’s support plans, the service specification and CQC requirements
• Maintaining excellent relationships with stakeholders and commissioners

A high level of motivation and personal commitment is required, along with demonstrable skills and experience in assessing needs and planning support, deploying and supervising staff and working effectively with stakeholders. A degree or equivalent vocational qualification in health or social care is required (such as NVQ or H&SCD 4/5).

This responsible senior role will require flexibility across the 7-day week, and working time will include providing direct care and support, as well as off-rota management time. As the Supported Living Manager, you will be expected to fully understand the needs of all service users and to act as a professional role model, coaching and mentoring staff.

You will ensure that staff encourage and support people to express their aspirations, make choices, develop skills and actively participate in planning the support they need. To achieve this, you will also be expected to work professionally alongside the multi-disciplinary team and communicate positively with families, carers and friends. You will support the Registered Service Manager in maintaining the overall quality of the service, ensuring that it complies with the CQC’s essential standards of care. Specific development of good practice is welcomed around medication support, person-centred practice and staff induction.
