Support Manager - Young Persons Service
The Young Persons Support Manager will be key in continuing our goal of specialising our “Young Persons” (13 – 18) offering at a time we are emphasising our dedicated Learning Disabilities service alongside our Award-Winning Care Farm. With considerable scope for growth, you will not be afraid to ‘get stuck in’, whether it be to create tangible positive changes in our clients’ lives, making key contacts in the community or in mentoring our aspiring Support Workers on their own care journeys. At SweetTree, you will sit comfortably with the idea of target driven outcomes, striving for excellence, and ultimately being an arbiter of your own success and changing lives for the better.
