Our client is a charity creating life-changing, education-focused children's homes to ensure that children in care have the same opportunities as everyone else. They believe that children growing up in residential care should go on to achieve great things and lead fulfilling lives. They believe that social pedagogy, a focus on education, people and place is the best approach to supporting young people.
The team is driven by a shared commitment to creating empowering places where everyone has the opportunity to grow and learn. They follow key values of Respect, Play, Difference, Empowerment, Curiosity and Excellence.
They have reached an exciting point in their journey - launching their first not-for-profit children's home, which will support up to six 12-18 year olds and is set to open in late 2021. We are recruiting an office manager to work alongside the team in the home to provide high quality and efficient administration service to support their overall aim to improve outcomes for children.
Difference is one of our core values, and we strive to take the broadest possible view of diversity. We value people from all backgrounds - by this we mean ethnicity, gender, age, and any other visible or invisible quality that makes you unique. We welcome that every person brings their own perspective and experience to our children's homes, to contribute to our vision.
As the Office Manager of the first children's home, you will be responsible for undertaking a variety of administrative tasks to ensure the smooth running of the home.
This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Office Manager to support the creation of a new home from the beginning. They have purchased a building, which is undergoing carefully-designed and bespoke refurbishment so it best meets the needs of our children. You will assist the Registered Manager and Head of Operations in the set up of the systems and processes in the home.
The role requires working closely with a range of stakeholders, including staff, young people, families and carers, schools, health services, police and others external agencies. You will build relationships with these people who come into contact with the home and be part of creating a welcoming environment.
As we are setting up a new home, it is likely the role will start in October 2021.
Interviews to be held beginning of September. Apply now!
