We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced social care manager to join Key’s senior management team in Highland.

We are seeking a highly motivated, confident, and enthusiastic individual for this role, with excellent leadership qualities and a commitment to personalised support that helps people lead their best lives.

You will have a degree of flexible working and responsibility for managing and developing Key’s services in Invergordon, Alness and Muir of Ord.

You will join two other local Area Managers and work as part of our Highland senior team, providing strong and effective leadership that achieves positive outcomes for the people we support and ensures high quality and creativity in personalised service development and delivery.

Key is passionate about delivering innovative, personalised services which support people to live the lives they choose, close to their family and friends and connected to their communities as equal citizens.

We are seriously committed to Self-Directed Support with the principles of choice, control, involvement, and participation being central to what we do.

You will have significant experience in leading, developing and managing flexible, responsive, person-centred social care services along with the personal and professional skills to work at both an operational and strategic level.

This role includes responsibility for regional learning and development, so experience of induction and training delivery, as well as coaching and mentoring staff would be an advantage.

You will have excellent communication skills-both written and verbal, with the ability to motivate, support and connect with others.

As the post holder will also be a Registered Manager, you must already hold a level 7 practitioner qualification to meet the requirements of the Care Inspectorate. You should also either have or be able to complete the relevant qualifications to enable your registration with SSSC.

If you are a highly committed and flexible manager, who shares our values and has a serious commitment to working in partnership with the people we support to help them achieve what they want out of life, this is the post for you.

You will be based from one of our staff bases, however a degree of non-contractual hybrid working will be available. The role will involve regular travel, and some support to teams out with normal office hours.
