Role Details

LCS Partnerships are a leading provider of semi-independent accommodation and support for young people leaving care. Currently based in London and the South East we are about to embark on the next exciting chapter in our journey, pursuing our vision to become the leading national provider of supported accommodation to care leavers. We want to recruit a Head of Service to lead the team through this period of expansion and growth.

As our Head of Service you will lead responsibility for the strategic and operational development, management and growth of a national Supported Accommodation Service for young people.

You will have proven experience in a similar role or you could be looking for the next step up in your career.  Ideally, you will hold a Social Work qualification and have experience in supporting young people with complex needs including trauma and challenging behaviours.

This role is homebased and travel will be required particularly to our offices in Enfield.  It also comes with a highly attractive salary up to £55k per annum depending on skills/experience plus company car and benefits.
