Can you enrich the lives of young people as a Registered Manager in a Children’s Residential setting?

We are looking for an experienced Registered Manager to lead our fantastic team at Osprey House, Rotherham. As the Registered Manager, you will lead your team to support our Children and Young People in their daily lives, ensuring they are safe, comfortable, and healthy.

This is a great opportunity to continue your leadership career in care, working as part of a team committed to helping children with varied and complex needs. Your work will be challenging and rewarding in equal measure and working within a setting where we maintain a strong safeguarding culture, where Children and Young People are listened to, respected, and involved in as many decisions as possible.

Our Registered Managers are responsible for ensuring our Care Teams have the structure, resources and motivation needed to provide the individual, bespoke support required by the Children and Young People in our care. You will deliver efficient management, delivery, and development of our residential LD and SEMH service, ensuring the highest quality of care and support is consistently given.

When it comes to looking after our children, we never settle for second best. We are looking for an experienced Registered Manager who shares our vision to build incredible futures by empowering vulnerable young people in the UK, to be happy and to make their way in the world.

Already a Registered or Deputy Manager with previous management experience in a similar LD and SEMH care setting, you will bring the right motivation, personal qualities, and levels of resilience to ensure a caring, structured service that provides a calm, homely environment.

Qualified to RMA or QCF L4, Level 3 Diploma in Residential Childcare or equivalent, you will be happy to work towards (or already be in possession of) your Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health & Social Care and Children & Young Peoples Service and will be a calm, engaging, resilient leader able to motivate your team to provide a safe, caring environment where every child can thrive.
