Work Hours: 36 Hours per Week
Hackney Council is looking for someone to help manage a new team that will bring Adult Services into the heart of our community. As Assistant Centre Manager for Oswald Street, you will have an exciting opportunity to be involved in an innovative new service from the outset.
Opening in September, Oswald Street, our new day service facility will allow a multi-disciplinary approach to support vulnerable adults. Our service users have a range of complex needs such as dementia, autism and learning disabilities. Instead of having various centres dedicated to individual needs, we will be providing a variety of resources under one roof.
The people who rely on this service have been involved in the building's development from the outset. Helping design and name it, having their say on the facilities needed and giving their views on the overall look and feel of the place. The Centre team will mostly work Monday to Friday, although may have some planned out of hours work from time to time.
Hackney Council's Adult Services are pioneers in bringing together health care with support. Our focus is on creating resilient teams able to meet new challenges, while keeping those who rely on us at the heart of our work.
You will be supporting the Centre Manager in creating a direction for Oswald Street from the start and deputising for them in their absence. You should have a broad understanding of the issues facing the people we support, as well as experience implementing policies and procedures. We will need you to help ensure we work according to best practice and exceed standards required.
With responsibility for two Co-ordinators who supervise a team of twenty two Support Workers, we are looking for someone used to motivating and managing a team. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop management experience within a totally new service. You will need a diploma/NVQ Level 4 or equivalent in Health/Social Care along with a management qualification.
Hackney is one of the UK's highest performing local authorities, serving one of London's best places to live and work. We have achieved a huge amount: our services, our schools, our public spaces are all amongst the very best. We have changed the reputation, not just of the Council, but of Hackney itself. Bringing jobs and investment into the borough, securing the legacy from 2012 Games, and making this a place of which we can all be proud.
