Audit, Standards and Health & Safety Officer - Learning Disabilities
Milton Keynes

Job reference: 000432

Location: Milton Keynes

Closing date: 28/03/2021

Salary: £24,335 + £2,000 car allowance

Employment type: Full-time

Could you combine a focus on quality and legislative knowledge with the softer skills of coaching people to improve? Perhaps you're a Social Care manager looking for a better work life balance. Or a Health and Safety specialist wanting to have a positive impact in the lives of vulnerable people.

You'll work with us to make sure we are supporting adults with learning disabilities in the best way possible. You'll work alongside operational colleagues, carrying out a range of audits in services,  making objective judgements on audit findings, and compiling reports and collaborative action plans from the results.

You'll build relationships with colleagues, people we support, their families and other stakeholders over a wide geographical area, involving substantial travel across the South East.

Although the job is primarily weekdays, some flexibility is required outside these times in order to build constructive relationships with staff working different shift patterns, and to understand any issues involved.

You will most likely be based at our head office in Milton Keynes, but if you live elsewhere, we can discuss basing you at the regional office nearest to your home.

About you

You must have worked at management level with people who have a learning disability or autism. It would be great if this includes experience of advocacy and co-production.

You'll need knowledge of relevant statutory legislation, for example Safeguarding Adults, the Care Act, Health and Safety and Data Protection. You'll also need excellent technical skills in Word and Excel.

You'll have the ability to identify and address training and development needs, both for yourself and others.

It's essential that you are a driver with your own transport, which will be insured for business use.
