The opportunity

The Council’s Change for Children Transformation Programme seeks to build a strong and financially sustainable future for children and families across Buckinghamshire. In the context of increasing demand on services, it aims to achieve changes in the way we deliver services so we provide children and families with the right support at the right time, target services better and work with partners to ensure we can continue to educate and protect children and improve their life chances.

About us

As part of this programme, we are embarking on introducing four new Children’s residential homes in Buckinghamshire.  Our residential homes will provide stable, effective placements for young people, including those with challenging behaviour – providing them with a safe, caring community in which they can learn how to build positive relationships.

We are therefore looking for a Residential Manager/Head of Home for our new short term emergency placement Children’s Home situated in Aylesbury who can provide a positive living experience for the resident young people by caring for their physical, emotional and social needs.

About the role

You will encourage and stimulate emotional and social growth by devising and organising out-of-school activities, encouraging the children/young people to socialise and to join organisations outside of the Home.

You will make specific contributions to the formation and implementation of care/placement for young people and work in partnership with families and carers of children, Social Workers and other outside agencies, as required.
