Lewisham, London
c. £85,000

PLUS offers support services for adults with learning disabilities in South London. Our work is based on developing and maintaining people’s independence and having a real presence in their local community. We aim to provide the standard of service and support we would choose for ourselves or those close to us. We are registered with the Care Quality Commission as a residential and domiciliary care provider, and only support adults with learning disabilities. We work in the London boroughs of Lewisham, Southwark, Greenwich, Sutton, Croydon and the nearby surrounding areas.


Based in Lewisham, PLUS is a charity that provides care and support services for adults with learning disabilities in South London. Our family focus is at the heart of our work, and at a time of significant change with our founding CEO stepping down after 30 years of service, we are looking for someone who can bring that same caring and inclusive approach as we look to the future. 

Having recently reviewed our strategy we have identified exciting opportunities for our future growth and development and as our new CEO you will be integral in leading PLUS to fully realise our potential and ensure we continue to provide high quality services. We are looking for an experienced strategic organisational leader who possesses strong financial acumen and commercial experience to help ensure the long-term sustainability of PLUS. Relationships are central to PLUS’s work and as our new CEO you must be able to demonstrate a deep understanding of the people, communities and families we support and possess the ability to build strong relationships internally and with external stakeholders.

Our people are at the heart of everything we do, and you will be a “people first” leader, deeply committed to our purpose and focused on delivering the best outcomes for those we serve. Everything we do is underpinned by the principle of maintaining people’s independence as much as we can. We do this by having a visible and active presence in our local community and we are guided by the principle that we provide the standard of care that we would want for ourselves and those closest to us. We want to better reflect the communities we serve, and equality, diversity and inclusion are at the heart of PLUS, for the people we support, our staff and from a culture perspective and we actively welcome applications from underserved communities for this role.

If this opportunity inspires you help shape the future of PLUS and work with our dedicated and committed team to make a difference to people in south east London, we’d love to hear from you.
