About us

We’re Consensus, an award-winning independent provider of support services for people with learning disabilities and additional health and social care needs.

We believe everybody can achieve their aspirations and do amazing things. Our role is to provide people-centered 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.

Newlands Cottages

Newlands is a small registered service in Caterham on the Hill, CR3. The service provides support for 4 men who have mild learning disabilities and varying mental health conditions/personality disorders. Some people living here find it difficult to engage in work placements and activities and spend a great deal of time at home. Others have a variety of work placements and activities. There is a small staff team structured as service manager, team coordinator, team leader and support workers who between them deliver around 330 support hours each week.

The Service Manager role

We’ll look to you to lead the team at The Manor, 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.

You will receive:

  • Competitive Salary
  • Yearly Bonus
  • Welcome Bonus paid at 3 months and 6 months
  • Fantastic support and development opportunities
  • Paid annual leave 25 days per year plus Bank Holidays
  • Employee benefits platform providing discounts at over 150 retailers
  • Employee Assistance Programme, confidential telephone counselling and        legal advice 24 hours a day, 365 days a year & a Health & Wellbeing portal

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-centered services that we are – services that help people to a better life.

Everyone who joins Consensus to work for us shares our values –

Choice & Respect; Ambition & Imagination; Reliability & Professionalism; Honesty & Integrity; Responsibility & Accountability; Inclusive & Supportive

That way we can be sure that every member of every team and service in our organisation is focused on supporting opportunity, choice and success for the individuals we support. We also follow this ethos for the people who work for us.  We value your talents and we’ll give you every opportunity and support you need in your rewarding career with us.

Consensus supporting opportunity, choice and success.
