Delivering support with a difference. That’s when it hits home.

We have a fabulous opportunity for you to join our awesome team! As a great leader you’ll have a genuine passion to lead our services to deliver aspirational person centred housing related support.

You'll have overall responsibility for managing our new Community Wellbeing Scheme, Webb Ellis Court. Our service will offer 63 apartments for customers 55+ years and a range of support services to meet their needs. The overall aim being to support people to live as independently as possible. You and your team will ensure that our customers have a safe place to live and can access all of the opportunities our service has to offer.

You’ll lead a team of housing colleagues, whilst working alongside our Registered Manager and care team to deliver efficient, high quality, cost effective and customer centred services. You’ll empower our customers to live independently and make it a great place to work for our colleagues. As Team Manager you’ll ensure the high performance and quality assurance of our services using your experience and strong skills in effectively motivating and directing colleagues. You’ll also monitor service performance against contractual targets and ensure that the service is visible and accessible to referring agencies and self-referring customers too.

About our teams

As this is a new service you will be able to create your own fabulous team alongside the Registered Manager.

Together you’ll be able to make sure our colleagues are super passionate about supporting customers to reach their goals and celebrating their achievements. You’ll be creating not just a team but a ‘work family’, with around 40 colleagues working across the service. Who won’t just love to support our customers, they’ll be there for each other too!

You will also join our wider Yorkshire management team and will work for our Operations Manager, Nicky who has worked for us for 6 years. Nicky is passionate about providing brilliant care and loves to explore new places all over the world during her time off.

Working hours

It’s the team’s unwritten rule that you attend the important appointments in life, be it your child’s school play, your partner’s graduation, or to get your new fridge delivered. You can elect to fit these around your working day or use your flexi to take the time off. Our focus is on getting the job done, not your working hours and that means trusting each other!

A bit about you

We want someone like you, who has significant experience as a Service Manager in managing large contracts, associated KPI’s, budgets and can drive the consistent delivery of high quality services to meet the needs of our customers and commissioners.

To be awesome in this job, your key strengths will lie in people management and motivation, bringing colleagues together to share information and best practice. You’ll maintain strong professional relationships with your peers and their teams as well as external stakeholders.  We’ll be impressed with your passion for promoting independence and social inclusion, as well as your focus on quality, efficiency and your ability to develop service provision in new and innovative ways.

We do need you to have an excellent working knowledge of the Housing and Care and Support sectors, safeguarding processes and housing law. You’ll be able to respond quickly and appropriately to emerging risks to individuals, teams or the contract and it’s also important that you have excellent communication skills, IT skills and strong analytical skills too. So join us and lead a team which is doing things differently and spending more time making a real difference to vulnerable people’s lives.

To make sure our customers are well supported, it’s important that you have worked in a Supported Housing, preferably Extra Care or Community Wellbeing, environment before. Don’t worry, we won’t drop you in the deep end, we’ll help to you understand how things work at Home Group!

It would be amazing if you have worked in this type of environment before, however it’s your “can do” positive attitude and enthusiasm that are critical to make this role a success. We can nurture your talent, just let us know in your cover letter why you have a passion for working here!

If you are successful, we need you to have an Enhanced Disclosure Check through the Disclosure and Barring Service which we’ll pay for.
