Do you want a role which is challenging, rewarding and enjoyable? In an organisation that will value and empower you to achieve excellent outcomes for people with a visual impairment?
We are looking for two people who have a passion for excellence and innovation in service delivery and understand the need for continuous learning and service improvement. You will have responsibility for a service and will need to ensure it is safe, compliant and effective whilst also recognising opportunities for improvement.

We have been providing services to people with a sensory loss for over 170 years and are established as one of the key providers of services for both older and younger adults with a visual impairment.
Our business continues to grow, and whilst the majority of our service users continue to have a visual impairment, we have developed expertise in working with adults who have other specialist needs including acquired brain injury, learning disabilities and autism.
Today we support more than 180 people in a range of services including supported living, extra care, housing with care and small care homes.
You will be passionate about delivering good quality personalised Care and Support and would value working in a small organisation which will give you the support to flourish.
You recognise that for each individual ‘good’ will look different and you are willing to listen and co-produce services with the people who use them.
You will have proven experience of leading and motivating a team in a comparable service and an appropriate care qualification. For the registered post you will need QCF Level 5 in Care/Management (OR NVQ Level 4 / Registered Manager’s Award or equivalent).
