You will be providing support to the Registered Managers to ensure compliance with CQC regulations, undertaking quality monitoring and oversight, supporting the service to implement the new electronic system and will be supervising Scheme Managers.

You will need to have excellent communications skills, an ability to build strong relationships, will need to be able to manage as well as motivate a team and will need to ensure the team delivers a quality and effective service.

Applicants must be available and willing to take part in an out of hours on-call rota. Additionally, some working outside of traditional business hours will be required.

Please note, an Enhanced DBS check is required for this post.
