We are looking to recruit two Assistant Team Managers who have enthusiasm, drive and commitment and who want to focus on great practice that makes a real and positive difference. This along with an ability to form positive and sustainable relationships with children, young people, their families and carers is essential in ensuring a high quality and consistent service is achieved that will promote and support positive life chances for all children and young people in our care and care leavers.
