We are hiring a Locality Manager for South Oxfordshire, to manage a team of 3-6 Dementia Advisers and provide dementia support to your own caseload of clients.
Dementia Advisers (DAs) support people with a diagnosis of dementia, their carers and families. DAs take a holistic approach to support, encouraging person centred care and providing timely and accurate information and advice. DAs signpost and refer to the right support at the right time across a wide range of services. By enabling clients to access support that they and their family need we are able to help them live as well as possible for as long as possible in their own homes and remain active in the community.
This role is primarily home-based, managing the team and taking referrals within a geographical area and from GP Practices. The role requires considerable autonomy and candidates need to be largely self-managing, happy to work alone and able to use their initiative.
As well as managing their team Locality Managers work closely with the Head of Service on service development to make the service more effective through strong collaboration with service partners and the development of new initiatives.
Ideally we are looking for someone with experience and lots of skills. However, for the right person we can offer a training and development programme, with mentoring support from an experienced Locality Manager, a structured induction, and a pathway to both a qualification in Dementia Support and Management.
We are looking for someone who can demontrate experience of:
- Effective time management
- Creating networks and building relationships
- Keeping accurate records
We need someone who is comfortable working with older people and with experience of supporting people in a caring or cared for role, preferably people living with dementia.
