Assistant Locality Manager
Full-time - hours
Are you a Support Worker who is looking to take the next step in your career? Or perhaps you know someone who is!
Our forensic services in Hull are growing and we have a fantastic opportunity for someone who’s passionate about person-centred care to join us as an Assistant Locality Manager.
This role is ideal for people who want to grow professionally and take on more responsibility whilst still being able to provide the direct support that’s so incredibly rewarding - it's the best of both worlds!
This is a full-time position where you will be working hours per week, with 15 hours in the office and hours delivering direct support. You will be required to be on call and work flexibly on the rota, with shifts usually starting at 8am one day until 8am the following day with a sleep-in shift included. There are also waking night shifts from 10pm until 7am.
The people we support have learning disabilities, autism, complex mental health needs and they have a forensic history. Experience supporting people with behaviours that others may find challenging is essential.

This is your opportunity to build your skills and expertise:
- Supporting the Locality Manager to guide, motivate and encourage your team to provide a quality service in line with our values, policies, and practices
- Working with relatives and outside agencies - including health professionals, social workers, and advocates - to meet the needs of the people we support
- Establishing and monitoring service budgets
- Managing person-centred rotas and the recruitment of new team members
- Leading by example and being a positive role model for your team
- Delivering direct support, dividing your time between supporting people, and working in the office
You already have proven professional qualities, including:
- Experience of working with people with a wide range of needs - for example, autism and complex learning disabilities
- Experience supporting people who display behaviours that others may find challenging
- The ability to prioritise workload, manage your own time, delegate tasks and meet deadlines
- Up-to-date knowledge of the personalisation agenda and Active Support provision
- The personality to develop positive working relationships across Dimensions – including the people we support, their families, internal colleagues and external agencies
