Our client provides Supported Living, Residential, Outreach and Community Services to individuals with multiple or complex needs such as learning disabilities, autism, ABI and/or challenging behaviours and they are currently recruiting for a Deputy Service Manager in Virginia Water.

The role will include day to day person centred, active support with service users, (personal care, shopping, cooking, social activities etc.) with some admin work and management of staff teams (shift leading, recruitment, rota’s, updating support plans, probations reviews/supervisions etc.)
