Are you an accomplished Manager in the Health & Social Care field who's ready to move from day-to-day service level issues and take on a more business focused role? Then consider a move to Richmond Fellowship.
One of the largest voluntary sector providers of mental health services in England, with a turnover of £40m, we're already leaders in our field. However, we operate in an ever-changing environment that we expect to remain just as challenging in the future. Our aim? To add value at every level of the business and empower decisions that will improve our service offering, as well as outcomes for our service users.
As a Locality Manager, you'll be taking on a business management role with key operational responsibility for business planning and budget setting for our services in Cambridgeshire.

Your key responsibilities:
- Ensure the implementation of business plans and service delivery within your locality

- Be responsible for all risk management, from a business perspective, within your locality
- Directly line manage team leaders and ensure locality training & development needs are met
- Contribute to organisational development and management projects as required.
To succeed, you'll need good judgment and delegating skills plus proven experience of managing a community based/employment service in a related environment. You'll also need:
- Substantial experience of developing business plans and managing budgets
- The ability to interpret management information to improve service performance
- Excellent negotiation and contract management skills gained working with either service providers or commissioners
- A proven flair for business development and bringing innovation to services
