Team Leader

Do you think in a person-centred way? Do you want to make a difference to people you support? Are you interested in leading a team, but don’t want to sit in an office? Are you an outstanding support worker / key worker looking for the next step? Or are you a Team Leader already and really want to join an outstanding Charity with great values?

Our client is proud to be recruiting for a Team Leader for their team working within a shared lifestyles scheme.

As Team Leader you will play an important part in developing and delivering innovative person-centred services. Working on rota, and reporting to the Service Manager, you will be responsible for ensuring the service consistently meets internal and external quality standards.
