Are you someone who is dedicated and skilled? Do you have experience in working with people with Learning Disabilities who have complex needs? Are you looking for the next step up or to develop your career? Look no further, LDN London has the role for you!
Who we are:
LDN London is an award-winning charity with 60 years’ experience of supporting people with learning disabilities to stay healthy, be safe and live well.
Kingsbridge Road is our respite service in Kensington and Chelsea for people with highly complex needs including mental health needs, autism and learning disabilities. This is a critical service for families and their adult children needing a break and for people whose placements have broken down and new permanent housing needs to be sourced.
The service offers planned and unplanned accommodation to adults with learning disabilities and currently has 2 vacant Deputy Respite Manager positions. We are looking to recruit experienced Deputy Respite Manages to run the service.
About the role:
We require experienced, dedicated and skilled staff who want to work in a challenging, rewarding and exciting service. The role will provide you with an excellent opportunity to develop your potential, learn new skills and make a real and positive change to the lives of the people who use respite and their families and carers. Some of the challenges include regular and short notice changeover of people they support often under crisis themselves; supporting new and emerging needs and providing specialist support to those with behaviours of concern .
We need individuals that know how to help someone have a nice break doing activities of interests in a risk managed way and then returning to their family home until they are guests again.
You will be working in partnership with our services users, families, professionals and other organisations; therefore, you must be highly organised with strong communication skills.
The ideal candidate should have a passion for supporting and caring, and the drive and energy to raise standards of support and service delivery. You must be willing to work alternate weekends and shifts alongside your team as this is not a 9 – 5 management roles.
Why join us:
We offer continuing opportunities for learning and development together with regular supervisions and support for all our staff.
