Holly shares her story
"My name is Holly, I'm 17 and I have cerebral palsy. I go to Henshaws Specialist College in Harrogate. In my spare time I like to watch TV. My favourite shows are Call the Midwife, The Big Bang Theory and Queer Eye. I also like to go on weekends away with my friends. I use an eye gaze computer to communicate. I have a wicked sense of humour!

Due to a restructure within our care management team, we are looking to recruit an additional Care Lead to ensure that the service meets all regulatory framework within OFSTED and CQC, and delivers outstanding, person centred care for our students.

Duties of the role include:

  • Alongside any deputies under your supervision, manage a team of enablers, carrying out regular supervisions, appraisals and observations in order to support individuals to develop and progress their skills.
  • Meet the requirements of the Quality and Audit Cycle, ensuring that self-assessment and improvement is ongoing and reflective of the service.
  • Be responsible for managing the individual budgets for the service

The successful candidates will have NVQ 5/Diploma in Health and Social Care or a willingness to achieve within a set period. Previous experience of working with people with learning disabilities would be a distinct advantage.
