Locality Manager

Locality Manager (Registered Care)
Location - Redditch, Worcestershire. 
Full time - 37.5 hours per week

Dimensions is a national provider supporting adults with learning disabilities and/or autism. We believe that people are the most important part of everything we do and we need someone brilliant to help us do great things as a Locality Manager in Redditch, Worcestershire. 

The successful applicant will join our established, experienced and supportive management team to help us support people even better. Our supported living services need your creativity, your passion and your commitment to take our services to the next level – your knowledge, experience and enthusiasm will help us to deliver our “Better Lives for More People” strategy over the next couple of years.

There’s lots to get your teeth into with the delivery of high quality, innovative, compliant services, but you will have lots of support, guidance and expertise to make sure you get there. This role is based from home with the expectation that there is sufficient presence at the services, which means that we will supply you with all the kit you need to manage this effectively. Working hours are broadly Monday to Friday (office hours) but with the flexibility to provide guidance and assistance to the locality and to be part of a team on call. This may require some evening and weekend working on occasion.  The role may also require occasional support and personal care for males and females at times. 

But – why would I choose to work for Dimensions?

Dimensions have all of the resources and expertise of a large organisation, but with the local support and structures of a much smaller one. We are a not-for-profit enterprise committed to developing and rewarding our colleagues. So, if you are right for this role, we will offer:

  • A salary of £33,034 per annum (based ) on 37.5 hrs per week
  • Up to 35 days’ annual leave entitlement (including bank holidays)
  • Access to discounts on high street shopping, cinema tickets and meals out
  • Employee Assistance Programme
  • Pension scheme, Long Service Awards and Life Assurance.
  • Employee recognition scheme ‘Inspiring people’

What will I be doing?

As a Locality Manager you will lead and model your teams, providing a positive example of practice leadership. You will provide oversight of services to deliver highly personalised support, promote maximum engagement and promote a meaningful presence in local communities. Ultimately your aim will be to support people to lead positive lives that make sense to them and to give your teams the ability to develop this, while keeping an eye on and encouraging their development aspirations.  

Our Locality Managers are accountable for facilitating and leading safe and person centred  practice, ensuring high quality support which complies with both CQC and Dimensions requirements, while managing budgets and delivering on partnership commitments within their community.

For a full list of what you could soon be a part of, please review our attached job description.

What will I need?

  • Knowledge and understanding of CQC regulations
  • Willingness to register with CQC under a domiciliary care location
  • Experience of managing a team, setting objectives and ensuring goals are met 
  • Experience in delivery of services to comply with contracts
