Deputy Manager Residential - No Wrong Door
You will be part of the management team that supports a wide range of accommodation (including residential), support and services that makes up a NWD model. We are looking for a No Wrong Door (NWD) Deputy Manager who is equipped to take on a truly unique position; the key purpose of the role is to be responsible for the delivery of a quality Hub model which fundamentally places effective relationships with children and families at its heart. You will lead from the front to generate a change in culture, systems, relationships, practice and ways of working together, whilst complying with national guidance, standards and regulations with the determination to make a real difference to the lives of children, young people and families in the East of North Yorkshire.
The role of Deputy Manager is dynamic and diverse, requiring a confident, autonomous individual to drive forward practice and influence stakeholders, partners and colleagues. We are looking for an innovative professional with experience and resilience in working with young people with complex and challenging behaviours. You will be driven, astute, inspirational and a great communicator who strongly believes in a relationship based approach when working with children and young people, whilst ensuing multi-agency networks are developed and maintained and NWD is kept at the forefront of strategic developments and partner’s priorities, at all levels.
As Deputy Manager you will demonstrate real leadership and direction to enable staff to work at their best, using evidence based models including Signs of Safety and Restorative Practice. You will provide on-the-ground support and drive change in finding solutions, building sustainable and meaningful relationships and manage the reduction of risk, whilst focussing on local placements with the clear objective of improving work with families and safely reducing the number of children entering care.
You will work alongside the Registered Manager to bring systemic change to working with the hardest to reach young people and fundamentally challenge traditional methods of practice and theoretical thinking.
