A minimum of 2 years’ recent residential childcare experience and 1 year’s management experience is essential.

You’ll have detailed knowledge of safeguarding, Children’s Homes Regulations 2015, behaviour management strategies and you will be responsible for leading, managing and motivating your team to deliver the desired outcomes under the Quality Standards.
