Be part of something new! Help us set up, shape, and lead our new Children's home.

We are very excited to be opening a brand new Children's home within Walsall caring for children and young people aged between 7-18 years.

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, highly motivated, experienced individual, who has the appropriate skills to set up and lead a new Children's home, through to Ofsted registration, and take on the role of Registered Manager. The ideal candidate will have a minimum of one-year experience managing and supervising staff within a Children's Residential home and possess a Level 5 diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care or equivalent qualification.

As this is a new home, the successful candidate will be on board from the beginning and take a lead role in shaping and developing the home, its systems and procedures. This would ideally suit someone looking for a challenge to succeed and an opportunity to progress their career and instil their own vision, plans and ideas, whilst also promoting the ethos and vision of Walsall council.

The successful candidate should be able to demonstrate an excellent understanding of the needs of young people in care. They should have extensive knowledge and understanding of the Children's Homes (England) Regulations 2015, the guide to the Quality standards, Ofsted’s Social Care Common Framework (SCCIF) and other relevant statutory legislation, guidance and good practice.

We are looking for somebody who can demonstrate strong leadership in a team that will aspire to deliver the very best care and support that enables children and young people to fulfil their potential.

If this is you, we would love to hear from you. Do you have the skills we are looking for? Are you restorative and reflective in your approach and always willing to learn?
