The Avalon Group is a social care provider and a registered charity. Despite the challenges faced by the Adult Social Care sector, Avalon continues to grow and develop to provide responsive, personalised care and support to enhance and enrich the quality of people’s lives.
They are now looking to add a new Regional Operations Director to the senior management team. You will be committed to their mission and values and you will join a team of experienced, hard-working and supportive senior managers. You will need to be flexible, open and confident and enjoy working as part of a team.
They have established an excellent reputation with our commissioners and have achieved a rating of Good in the eight recent CQC inspections.
Avalon are therefore looking to appoint a senior manager who is able to maintain these high standards, to ensure customers continue to receive the highest quality person centred care and support.
You will be responsible for overseeing r services in a number of localities supporting the Locality Managers in the day to day management of staff and monitoring progress of customers.
You will already be working as a senior manager, with the ability to demonstrate good knowledge and experience of health and social care policy as well as having the understanding of how this impacts on the delivery of care services. You will also have experience of leading teams, ideally across a multi-site environment with the ability to innovate and drive forward change. Working with business development colleagues, you will identify and develop growth opportunities and take a lead role in the preparation of tender documentation.
There is a requirement to travel as you will be spending a significant part of the week in the localities you support, so access to a vehicle that can be used for work purposes with a full valid driving licence is essential.
You will need to be able to work flexible hours to meet the needs of the role, as occasionally you may be required to work outside of office hours. The role is currently based at their Head Office in Harrogate, however this can be negotiated for the successful candidate.
They offer up to 30 days paid holiday entitlement, defined contribution pension scheme, on-site parking, and access to our employee discounts scheme with 24/7 employee assistance helpline.
