Flexible working during office hours

Being smaller, we can be more dynamic and move faster. You will only work with a small number of families at a time.

As a manager, you will work office hours Monday to Friday; it's a flexible role. 

Keeping children safe by supporting parents  

The child is at the heart of everything we do, and we pride ourselves on also treating parents with dignity and compassion. Working closely with families means everyone can see the difference they make to children and their parents' lives.

Staff who have joined us from local authorities have said working with us feels like they have got back to the root of social work. We feel proud we can make this offer for staff and families.  

Take ownership and help lead the charity

We encourage managers to take ownership of their centre whilst meeting the expectations of the organisation and Ofsted.

The centre is an attractive, well-maintained Edwardian house with facilities for four families. We support staff and offer them extensive training opportunities.

The successful candidate will manage one of the three centres and will enjoy the support of a peer group. They will be part of the senior management team in St Michael's, contributing to the charity's strategic direction.
