Scottish Autism is an organisation dedicated to enabling autistic people to lead happy, healthy, and fulfilling lives. A key expectation of everyone who works for Scottish Autism is that they live and breathe our values; Collaboration, Change Makers, Compassion and Contribution. Our values come into play throughout everything we do at work – how we work together, and how we deliver services to the people we support and to the people we work alongside. An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and committed Services Manager to work in our Fife Area Service who shares and demonstrates our values.
In keeping with our new way of working, a coaching model promoting and developing the autonomy of our teams, the key outcome for this role is to manage the Service to the highest quality. The successful candidate will manage the financial and budgetary targets involved in the provision of these services and participate in the planning, update, and review of these budgets.
With strong leadership, coaching and mentoring skills, you will provide and maintain a quality service, where the focus will be on developing skills, strategies of intervention and maximising independence for those we support and the autonomy of the teams you oversee. You will have demonstrable experience of liaising with multi-disciplinary teams, developing and auditing various care and/or support plans, risk management, people management, and developing close links in the local community, promoting the service and the organisation. This is a superb opportunity to undertake exceptional training and lead a hard-working team to success.
Scottish Autism has undergone digital transformation which is making our way of working smarter and allowing more time to be focussed on supporting individuals. Our training is second to none and as the Organisation plans to move to a new way of working which focusses on enabling and empowering practitioners to have more autonomy of their day support role, making teams more autonomous while continuing to work in partnership with supported people and families. It is an exciting time to join Scottish Autism as we adopt the coaching and mentoring model of support with supported people at the centre of everything we do.
Suitable candidates will have a relevant experience and qualification as set by the SSSC such as SVQ level 4 in Health/Social Care and the Leadership in Management and Care Award; coupled with experience in a management role.
