Supported Accommodation Manager

The Magdalene Group has been supporting people affected by sexual exploitation for over 20 years.  We are pleased to be expanding our organisation, with an aspirational and therapeutic-supported accommodation service, called EnRoute, for young women 16+, affected by child sexual exploitation.  We are pleased to be working in partnership with Victory Housing Trust to provide this brand new project.

This is an exciting opportunity to manage a home providing specialist and therapeutic services.  We are looking for someone who can establish this innovative, caring therapeutic home; who has a thorough understanding of the needs of young people, and who will be able to lead a team to provide the best possible outcomes for young women.

Our approach is to work with the young women in a community setting, where they can learn how to keep themselves safe, receive specialised therapeutic support and develop self-esteem, whilst living somewhere welcoming, nurturing, homely and safe. We aim to build positive relationships and provide opportunities for the future.

We are seeking a highly motivated person, with a proven track record, who has the capacity to develop and launch this exciting new service; taking responsibility for recruiting and managing a team of staff, comprising house-mother, support workers and therapeutic workers.

The successful candidate will:

  • have a sound understanding of the safeguarding legal framework for young people 16+ and compliance with local authority safeguarding procedures.
  • ensure housing management policies and practices are effectively operated; to include maximisation of income, licence management and implementation of fair and equitable referral procedures.
  • manage a value-based service, embedding the restorative approach and monitoring all delivery.
  • demonstrate an awareness of health and safety regulations and procedures to minimise risk.
  • maintain a high regard for young people, with the ability to relate successfully to individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds, and to manage conflict situations.
