You are a Registered Manager looking for new challenges and want to make a difference in people's life? This job is for YOU !!!

We are the leading UK charity for around 700,000 people with autism and their families. We provide information, support and pioneering services, and campaign for a better world for people with autism. We are proud of the difference we make.
This role will manage the Supported Living and Outreach services across the Northamptonshire area.
Our support ranges from a few hours each week, to more comprehensive care packages and 24-hour supported living for those with more complex needs, such as epilepsy, sensory over- or under-sensitivity, and other health difficulties.
We are looking for committed individuals with a positive attitude, who have a passion to work in an organisation that specialises in autism. You'll be working with autistic adults and their families, supporting adults with a diagnosis of autism and Asperger syndrome to live the life they choose, achieve their goals and access a range of community resources and activities.
You will be responsible for leading the outstanding care and management of all aspects of your respective services, ensuring individual outcomes are met for the people we support; maintain quality of service and strive to grow and develop the services, adapting to changing needs.
The roles will have full legal responsibility for making sure the services ensure compliance with CQC regulation in relation to the day to day care of people accessing the service.
You will ensure that the needs of adults with autism are assessed, identified and met through careful programme planning and behaviour support; manage an agreed budget to provide an efficient, viable service; supervise and manage staff performance and coordinate positive, collaborative liaison with external agencies, multi-disciplinary teams and health professionals.
