Chief Operations Officer (Services)

£80,000 per annum

We are dedicated to providing unwavering support to vulnerable individuals who have been underestimated by society, despite having so much more to offer. Our belief is that everyone deserves to feel respected, valued and recognised for their contributions to society. As such, our name consists of three small letters with significant meaning, ubu: “you be you”.


We are now looking for an additional Chief Operations Officer (Services) to join our senior leadership team, to renew and revitalise some of our services and to explore creative options for change and improvement. We want to provide even higher levels of care and support to expand our impact and achieve our aims. Working in close partnership with Linda Bilsborrow, our current COO, you will be integral to achieving our ambitions and ensuring that all of those we serve receive outstanding care and support.

You will be an established leader in social care, with a strong track record of leading services and team across a complex and dispersed organisation. You will be experienced at both designing and delivering strategy and working with others to deliver exceptional person led care for people with multiple and complex needs. A collaborator, you will be driven by the impact you can make as a member of a high quality and committed team and you will thrive in organisations which engender strong relationships and a service ethos. 

We have grown our services across the North of England and into the Midlands and we continue to challenge ourselves to be innovative and inspirational in everything we do. Our values underpin all our work, and we believe in being open, honest, fair, responsible, and accountable in everything we do. Our staff teams strive for excellence in the care they deliver – at all times. 

If you are inspired by our mission and you can bring experience and success as a creative leader of operations and service delivery, we would love to hear from you,
