We are looking for an inspirational and passionate natural leader to join our team in Argyll & Bute and Highlands as a Senior Operations Manager.

Responsibilities & Success Factors:

As the Senior Operations Manager for Argyll & Bute and Highland (our Rural locality), and a member of the Executive team, you will ensure that Carr Gomm achieves its Mission and Aims as per the Strategic Plan: you will enable people to live safely and well, and to live their best lives.

As an inspirational leader, you will embody Carr Gomm’s person-centred approach and organisational values, ensuring that these foundation stones remain embedded in everything Carr Gomm does. This is a dynamic leadership role in which you will never settle for “good enough”. You will actively seek opportunities to innovate, improve, and develop in the pursuit of a more equitable society in which people can lead full and positive lives as active citizens.

The responsibilities in this diverse leadership role are wide-ranging, but include:

  • Delivering positive outcomes for people and families throughout Argyll & Bute and Highland.
  • Ensuring systems are in place to actively involve people and families in developing and improving their support, their service, and Carr Gomm.
  • Ensuring the locality fulfils its legal, statutory, regulatory, and contractual requirements.
  • Fostering a diverse and committed team of colleagues through robust leadership: instilling the importance of accountability, knowledge, and a strong people focus, whilst supporting colleagues to become the best version of themselves.
  • Investigate, explore, and pioneer innovative approaches to supporting people, families, and communities.
  • Developing and strengthening relationships with commissioners, collaborators, and partners to maximise Carr Gomm’s impact in the locality.
  • Contributing to relevant commissioning and procurement processes.
  • Safeguarding the financial operations of the locality, ensuring that all accounting processes are implemented efficiently and effectively throughout the locality.

This list is by no means exhaustive; rather it gives a flavour of the joy that can be achieved in this dynamic role that will require the post holder to travel widely throughout the locality regularly and routinely.

Who we are looking for

In our eyes, the best Senior Operations Managers are creative, tech-savvy, results-driven, positive, and self-motivated team players who are wonderful ambassadors, analytical thinkers, excellent storytellers, and passionate world changers.
