An exciting opportunity has arisen to become the new Registered Manager of our residential children's home in Jesmond (close to Newcastle City Centre). Rated 'outstanding' by Ofsted, this service provides support to children/young people who have a learning or physical disability with additional needs.

The role offers:

• The opportunity to make a difference - you will be instrumental in shaping the ethos of the home through developing a culture of high aspiration for the children

You will have strong leadership skills, a demonstrable commitment and passion for the delivery of excellent care, as well as a drive for continuous improvement. Ideally you will have achieved your Level 5 Diploma in Leadership & Management for Residential Childcare (or equivalent), or be willing to work towards this.

In return we offer a range of benefits including:
• A competitive salary
• 27 days holiday plus bank holidays
• Comprehensive induction programme
• Excellent in house and external training opportunities
• Opportunity to gain nationally recognised qualifications
• Access to a rewards scheme designed to save you money on shopping. Includes specially arranged discounts, savings and cashback opportunities with a huge list retailers
