Scooby Dooby Doo, where are you? We’re looking for a Service Manager to join our Scooby gang!  

You will be working in our Children’s Short Break Service in Shrewsbury. Working with Children and Young People who have a learning disability and you will also be supporting their families.

You will be responsible for management of the Registered Children’s Home. This is a vital role as the people who visit this service really rely on us. We pride ourselves in the quality of service we provide and ensuring that we are always looking to improve.

We require someone who is creative, self-motivated, determined, has a passion for positive change, and loves a challenge. You will lead, manage, motivate and develop a dedicated team of support workers to maintain our high quality support service.

At Mencap one of 5 values is that we are Inclusive. It’s so important to us that you build a relationship with the people supported in this service and because of that we have included 6 profiles made by our Scooby gang!

Not only will you manage the service but you will play a big part in providing days that can only be described as spectacular. If you haven’t guessed from this advert one of the children we support really loves Scooby Doo and talking all about it, maybe you could help organise being part of the Scooby Gang as their spectacular day. Another one of the people we support loves paw patrol so you could help arrange a visit from Chase and Marshall in order to create this spectacular day. Everyone’s day will be different but the work you will do to create these spectacular days for the people we will support will be memorable for all.

Due to the requirements of the service you need to have management experience, have worked in an environment governed by Ofsted and you should have a Level 5 in leadership & Management for Residential Childcare (Or Equivalent).

And finally, one of our children absolutely loves Abba, so – Take a chance on Me…ncap! If you take a chance on us then we will take a chance on you and help you to reach your maximum potential.
