We are excited to be recruiting a Registered Services Manager into our Senior Operations Team to lead in enabling 1625ip to successfully register and comply with new Ofsted regulations on supported accommodation for care-experienced young people.  
This is a new post offering an exciting opportunity to shape and improve services, and place 1625ip in a strong, compliant state of readiness for Ofsted regulation and inspection, as this post-holder will be responsible for ensuring compliance and upholding quality standards across all 1625ip registered settings.

Please find full details of how to apply via our website in the advert below. The deadline for application submissions is 23:59, Monday 05 June 2023.

We are striving to better represent the young people we support and therefore are particularly keen to increase applications from Black/Black British, Muslim, and male candidates as they are currently under-represented in our organisation. We also encourage applications from people with relevant lived experience. 

If you need an adjustment to be made to any part of the recruitment process, please let us know as soon as possible.

  • Ofsted have a requirement that a Registered Service Manager must have experience of having worked for at least two years, within the five-year period before the day on which they apply to register, in a position relevant to the residential support of children or adults.

You will be in Senior Operations Team and your line manager will be our Operations Director (Accommodation).
