Prospero Health and Social Care are recruiting an experienced OFSTED Registered Manager for a Residential Children's Home for Young People with Social, Emotional and Behaviour Difficulties in the Sandwell area. Salary up to £35,000 depending on experience.
The 8 bedded Residential Children's Home is privately owned and was opened in 2010 for disadvantaged children and young people from EBD backgrounds. The owner is currently recruiting a new manager as the home has recently been rated inadequate by OFSTED, so is looking for someone who wants a new challenge to bring the home back to the previous "GOOD" or "OUTSTANDING" ratings.

Are you an ambitious manager who has proven experience in working and managing residential services for Children and Young People? Would you like to join a quality focused, growing organisation? Are you ready for the next step in your management career? Would you like to become a registered manager for a residential children's service in the Black Country/Sandwell?

The successful Registered Manager would be responsible for leading, inspiring and mentoring the staffing groups to ensure they are meeting and exceeding the emotional support of the Children and Young People in the home.
You will be regularly monitoring and reviewing the policies and procedures of the service and updating where necessary to keep in line with the regulations.
You will be caring and empathetic and be able to create a therapeutic environment within the Home. You will have the overall budgetary responsibility for the home and be directly reporting to your Regional Manager on a regular basis.
We are looking for an aspiring and proven manager to re-open this service who currently has a "GOOD" track record with OFSTED to ensure the service is being led in the right direction with a view to become an OUTSTANDING home again, with the help of an experienced support team.
