We’re Consensus, an award-winning independent provider of support services for people with learning disabilities and additional health and social care needs.
Split across two semi-detached houses, The Heathers offers spacious accommodation in a friendly, welcoming setting. There are 12 en-suite bedrooms, two large pleasant communal areas overlooking the front garden, two kitchen dinners and a lovely courtyard garden with seating area.
Supported by a friendly team, the focus is on helping individuals to become as independent as possible. Each person living at The Heathers has a person centred support plan which outlines how they would like to be supported, tailored to their needs and abilities and the goals that are important to them.
We’ll look to you to lead the team at The Heathers providing operational and strategic direction, and making sure everything runs smoothly and cost-effectively. Together, you’ll ensure the individuals you support have the opportunity to develop a varied and fulfilling lifestyle – and the chance to define their own goals and decide their own future.
From ensuring the highest standards of support, to managing budgets, and developing your team, it’s a varied role in an organisation that’s leading the way in supporting those with learning disabilities.
The skills you’ll need
A strong, supportive leader and effective manager, you’ve successfully managed a team in a challenging Learning Disability Service. You’ve also had professional senior level contact with CQC and have developed positive relationships with commissioning teams.
You should have achieved, or be working towards a QCF Level 5 in Health and Social Care or hold equivalent qualification, such as NVQ Level 4 in both Health and Social Care and Leadership and Management in Care Services. Above all, you’re committed to the same high-quality, person-centred services that we are – services that help people to a better life.
We believe everybody can achieve their aspirations and do amazing things. Our role is to provide people-centred support – support that starts each person we support on the road to greater independence, empowering them to reach their full potential.
We’ll take equally good care of you and your career. Thanks to our ILM accreditation, we can offer you a structured management development programme, whilst our impressive benefits package will see you getting the rewards you deserve.
