The Role

The Executive Director of Support Services is a key role within our organisation, providing strategic leadership of our services, from residential and respite care to support for complex needs and community activities. we support thousands of people at home and in the community – people who start from a position of disadvantage due to their health or their disability and who want more choice, more control and more opportunities. 

As a member of the Executive Team, you will champion innovation and excellence in care in everything that we do. We pride ourselves on the quality of our services, but are not complacent – constantly striving for improvements in the ways that we work and the support that we offer.  This role therefore is a critical one, focused on modernising and growing the impact of our support services; reaching as many people as we can whilst delivering exceptional value for money and ensuring accountability is at the core of our customer-focused work.

We are looking for a strategic thinker, who has demonstrated excellence in care and support services.  Passionate about our customers, you will continually strive for innovation and efficiency and the best quality service provision. You will bring an appropriate level of challenge across our organisation to be the best in class.  With a strong commercial mindset, you will seek out new opportunities, ensuring we continue to grow sustainably and support as many people as possible.  Whether your experience is in mental health or learning disability services, or indeed the wider social care sector, you will put the needs of our customers first and resonate with our values-focused approach.
