Middlesbrough Council are seeking to appoint a Deputy Operations Manager for its Edge of Care service. You will have the drive and determination to contribute to the future development of Edge of Care, improving performance and ensuring quality in the delivery of our work.

The Edge of Care Service will provide structured, evidence-based interventions that enable families to develop problem solving skills, build resilience and achieve positive, sustainable behaviour change. Our trained and experienced staff will provide a rapid response to children and families in crisis, enabling them to address and overcome the difficulties that have led to the family being at risk of breakdown, and prevent further escalation and referral to care proceedings. Whether it's to limit the risk of children being moved into care, to address complex multiple needs across a family unit or to support the re-unification of families, we are passionate and committed to developing and delivering innovative and impactful solutions that meet need and improve the lives of children and families.

You will join a strong and experienced management team and a stable, integrated and committed workforce who are focused on improving outcomes for young people through the application of best practice and high professional standards.

You must have proven management skills, experience of working in residential childcare or a related area and the ability to lead, develop and support a team of residential staff and community outreach workers. You should have experience of working with young people with complex needs and a proven ability to improve outcomes. The ability to build and maintain effective relationships with colleagues from partner agencies is a key skill for achieving success in this role. There will be an expectation that the Deputy Operations Manager will register with Ofsted and this will be part of the role.

The successful candidate will have a proven working knowledge of the Children's Homes Regulations 2015 (including quality standards).

Middlesbrough Council is committed to investing in its workforce and all staff benefit from induction, supervision and for manager's there is an extensive development programme.

Required qualifications: Level 5 Management (Residential Pathway) or equivalent.
