Could you lead a care work team to provide "Outstanding" care?
We believe in providing only the highest standard of care at Notting Hill Housing, and this is why we can proudly say that we run the first extra care service in London to achieve "outstanding" at inspection.
We have a management opportunity at our exciting new service in the south of Lewisham, Hazlehurst Court, where we are looking to establish a new team.
This service is unique. The state of the art building, which will provide a care and support service to 60 customers aged 55 years and over, is being developed by a local housing association, Phoenix Community Housing, and will be ready in September. Fantastic communal facilities and a quality restaurant will compliment the excellent community resources already established by Phoenix in the area. There will be community of Extra Care and Independent customers with a mixture of low to high care needs.
Your leadership will make a real difference to the staff who work for us and the residents who live on site. Making sure our residents and our staff are well looked after is absolutely vital to us. With support from the on site Extra Care Manager, we'll look to you to lead your team of care workers. You'll ensure our ethos is put into practice - that customer's needs and wants are put firmly at the centre of everything we do.
We want you to grow in this role. We'll support you by further developing your management skills and specialist knowledge with exceptional training that includes effective needs assessment methods that focus on how our customers want to be living their lives. With the training provided, there will be opportunities for you to specialise in areas like mental health, dementia and end of life care.
No two days will be the same. You'll be supporting vulnerable adults with different levels of care and support needs to have fulfilling lives and make the most of opportunities available to them. With this as our aim it is essential that you already have experience of supervising staff to engage and empower vulnerable customers.
In return we offer excellent benefits including 25 days annual leave (plus bank holidays), health cash plan, season ticket loan, cycle 2 work scheme, childcare vouchers, life assurance and a generous contributory pension offer. You will be required to work late, early, weekends and Bank holiday shifts.
It is a requirement of this role that the job holder hold an enhanced DBS disclosure that we find satisfactory and we will apply for this during the pre-employment process.
