To take leadership and management responsibility for the development and shaping of dynamic and creative plans for children and young people age in the home, with a complex range of needs due to, but not exclusively early trauma and attachment. These children and young people often struggle to build relationships and understand their emotions which can result in complex and risk taking behaviour. Children and young people may need additional therapeutic support or specialist input which you will be responsible for identifying within the care planning process to ensure these needs are met.

You will manage the home in order to safeguard and promote the well-being of children and young people, taking the role as designated safeguarding lead for the home; and take all reasonable steps and support staff in the home to locate and ensure the safe return of any young people who are missing from the home. You will be committed to safeguarding young people and have an excellent understanding of child protection procedures.

Ensure the home operates within the Quality Standards and Children's Homes Regulations (2015), paying attention to detail to ensure the home is judged as 'good 'or 'outstanding' by Ofsted. The post holder will lead the Regulation 44 monitoring visits and regulatory inspections from Ofsted, as well as supporting the staff to contribute to the process. You will ensure that timely, focussed action plans are developed and implemented to meet any requirements or recommendations following Regulation 44 monitoring visits or Ofsted inspections. You will complete the Regulation 45 Quality of Care Reviews every 6 months, ensuring that feedback is gained from all stakeholders to inform and develop the Children's Home Development Plan.

You will ensure that the home has a staff development and training programme that enables staff to be skilled and knowledgable in order to meet the needs of young people in the home as defined by the Home Statement of Purpose and Function
